No, I dio not think it is a strange joke. The fact is most neighborhood farmers makets today do not deal in fresh meats. They may have many yeas ago, but not today.

But I do back to my original post, do you feel the same quality of ground beef is being presented to you in the market? My statemen is NO, it has more gristle content and other undesirables over our normal expectations.

Sarah, even as a Mod, I can't give you the amount of rep points that great post deserves; you've made my day!

But; BOT: We buy our meat exclusively from Dorothy Lane Market and have never been disappointed. I realize that even the Springboro store is a drive for most of the members on this forum.

Which Charleston, Wilson? OH, WV, or SC? Inquiring minds wanna know...

I don't use much ground meat so I don't have any first-hand experience with the issue but I wonder if a call to Kroger might be in order? They may have some explanation and possible solution to the problem.

Maybe I'm not going crazy. I love meatloaf. Plain old meatloaf. I like experimenting with different concoctions but I usually only use ground beef and not pork. For months now I've been disappointed with my results and had come to the conclusion that it was the ground beef. I also use Giant, Walmart and look for the best I can find but I've been disappointed every time. I keep getting a grainy, chunky something I don't appreciate texture.

I've found the same disappointment in burgers. I feel like I'm eating tiny chunks instead of beef.

I'm going to try to find a local butcher to see if there's a difference.

Seven years and the ground beef problem has still not been worked out?
