Aldi Burger vs. The Spendy Normal Grocery Store's
« on: May 01, 2022, 10:56:02 PM »

I normally buy burger at Aldi. I haven't had a lot of time lately, so I picked up a pound of certified black angus super $8/pound burger at my local "normal people's" store.
 
Damn, but a whole lot of fat/liquid cooked out of that pound of alleged 85/15 burger... Much more than I'd expect from Aldi's 80/20...

It's illegal to adulterate ground beef with water, so instead the add ice "so it doesn't overhead during grinding".  ;/  That's the water that floods the pan when you try to cook it.  My brother got some packer-cut briskets for $1.89 a pound recently from HEB and I ground all that up and froze it in 1 pound packages.  That meat looks really fatty, but no water cooks out of it and not nearly as much fat as you'd expect.

Aldi's 80/20 is pretty good.  Better than the 80/20 or even the 85/15 at most other stores.  It seems to have a little water in it but very little, and that moisture could just be leaking out because the Aldi packages I buy are frozen.

Iíll have to give them a try.
I just recently bought 15 lbs of 75% ground beef from Meijer for around $1.10/lb, which I donít have high expectations for, but it was super cheap.
