ie this processor: Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-Cup Food Processor

right now i use a meat grinder. i have to make sure to cut out any major connective tissues beforehand otherwise the grinder gets clogged.

but with a food processor, do you have to worry about tendons/connective tissue?

    I use the 20 cup Cuisinart regularly to grind/chop meat. I have found it quicker than the grinder on the kitchen aid. I cut out anything I would not eat: silver skin, gristle, cartilage, and the like and throw it out. Some of the really heavy fat is trimmed off as well and added in as needed. If I miss anything, oftentimes it is easy to pick out of the ground meat. And yes, do remove tendons and connective tissue, which I call silver skin which may or may not be accurate. Of course, the results with a food processor is a difference in both the look and texture of the final product because it is chopped multiple times.
