Grinding meat, whether for baby food or to make sausage or meatloaf, doesn't require any special equipment. While you may want to invest in a meat grinder if you grind a great deal of meat frequently, for most people, a regular kitchen blender is perfect for the job. You can grind meat before or after cooking it. If you are grinding raw meat, however, it is important to keep the meat as cold as possible during processing and work quickly so that you don't give bacteria time to grow within the meat.
