Burger meat/mince

Postby Wicksey » Sun Jan 15, 2023 7:08 pm

I'm sure in the past that I have bought ordinary beef minced meat from Mercadona but I notice that it is all labeled as 'burger' meat these days. I have known that Lidl's is like this, but I am disappointed that Mercadona is now the same. It is not 100% meat and has additives, when all I want is beef meat, minced. Do any other supermarkets just sell minced meat these days?

I think most butchers, including the meat counter in supermarkets will mince a piece of beef for you.

Wicksey,
I also noticed the same change with the minced meat in most supermarkets.

Now I only buy the minced meat from our local butcher, much better, maybe a little more expensive but better quality, I like to select the piece of meat and watch it being minced in front of me.
Also the chicken is much better from the local shop, seems a bit more expensive but fresher and I'm not paying for ice !
You get what you pay for. :think:
Saludos,
Gordon

I shall have to have a look thanks. I haven't been in a butchers here for years apart from the English one in Nerja. The parking is awful though to get to him otherwise we may have popped in more. He says his meat is all free range which is even better. I don't buy a lot of meat and a kg of mince lasts me months (frozen in portions) so it's worth paying a bit more for better quality.

In mercadona the minced meat is about 80% meat and 20% filling, we have a liking for the lidl 'fresona' mince, it seems to be tastier
