Make your own ground beef patties with this DIY Ground Beef recipe.


  • ½ pound Short Ribs (deboned)
  • ½ pound Beef Chuck Steak


  1. Cut each of the meats into approximately 1 inch cubes and separate into different bowls.
  2. Remove any silver skin, connective tissue, or gristle that is attached to the chuck steaks.
  3. Place into freezer for 45 minutes.
  4. In very small batches (4-5 cubes) of same meat types, pulse in food processor for 1 or 2 seconds.
  5. Check meat consistency. Does it look like a rough burger? If yes, continue. If no. Pulse again.
  6. Repeat last two steps if necessary.
  7. Once all meat is blended, combine the two and mix by hand.
  8. Patty and cook using your favorite method (grilling, stove top).


  • Feel free to experiment with different cuts of beef!
  • Make sure to weigh the meat AFTER cleaning from the silver skin and bones.
