That's an over cooked steak (anything more then very rare). Don't buy ground beef that way you can have rare hamburgers. what happen to the pork temp?

would grinding round steak, stewing beef or other cuts of meat make your hamburgers any safer? I mean, some people like them rare to medium rare and that's a no go in my house so maybe make your own hamburger.

Sharon Yes, however I have been told that since you don't know where that beef has been the out side of the meat should be shaved. the out side of the beef that you shaved off should be cooked til done. the inside that has not touched any contamination could then be ground up and used as ground beef and cooked as desired.

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
