Does anyone grind meat in their Vitamix like he did in the demo?

I was watching the presentation at midnight and was interested when the Vitamix man made a steak burger in the Vitamix (meat, onion, cheese), has anyone done this before? I wanted to do it in mine, but didn't know 1) how it would come out and 2) what kind and how much meat to buy/use. Thanks for any info.

I missed that part of the demo - want to see it though. Would be good for meatloaf I would think! Steak burgers sound wonderful right now!

Tried it a couple of times and decided I was wasting my time. I much rather use the Cuisinart as it is easier to get the fibrous tissue off of the blade of the Cuisinart than the VM. Now I really grind the majority of my meat with regular meat grinder as the texture is far better IMHO.

I have used it to grind boneless skinless chicken breasts. They come out wonderful! I've used the chicken for meatballs and lettuce wraps. You can grind the meat as fine or course as you like by controlling the length and speed of the blend.

I do it all the time with wild meat. I often grind a couple pieces of bacon in with it when I'm doing burgers.

Cheese with that whine?

SEE??? There is another thing I never considered - that would be great for quesadillas and tacos, etc. Now I'm thinking into this a bit more.....hmmmm - good idea!
