    Gristle, gristle, gristle and a weird bad flavor. Absolutely horrible. Trader Joe’s Butcher Shop 80/20 lean ground beef. What do these cow’s eat, shit?

  3. John

    Absolutely disgusting. It’s doesn’t even chew like normal ground beef. When making the Pattie’s it doesn’t feel like ground beef. It falls apart, it cooks different… when chewing it feels griddy non solid.. it’s bad

    I would give it a zero if I could. I have buying this product for years but I don’t know what this is now?! Definitely NOT organic beef. doesn’t look, smell, taste or cook like beef at all. Disgusting!!!

    J bought ground beef in the past and it was good. I think it was from Australia or N.Z. not sure. 2 weeks ago or so I looked in the back of the package and I think it says it was from Uruguay, pretty sure. (I wish I had made a note of where it was from) anyway, it was tough and it would not crumble like ground beef is supposed to do when cutting it with a spatula or wooden spoon while cooking it I just had big chunk. It was very tough. I will continue to buy it at my Oakridge farmers market from a local farmer.

    Bones in the meat, very tough meat, didn’t grind up well in pan like most ground beef, and tasted off. If i could give it 0 stars I would.

    Horrible. Tough..no flavor..never again.

    The absolute worst crap. Can it possibly be any worse and still pass for meat? Is it meat? Not sure what part of the cow they got it from but probably somewhere near the colon. Agree with the other reviewers about terrible crumbling and misc cow parts

    I used to buy this product regularly. I don’t know what has happened recently, but this product is now HORRIBLE. There are bones in every bite! It’s got a weird, slimy texture when raw. It doesn’t cook right and sometimes it comes out of the package all grey-ish. Again, it used to be quality meat. I don’t know what happened. But this beef has almost succeeded in turning me off beef altogether.

    Gross. Weird foul smell when cooking. Texture like a paste.

    Just chipped my tooth on a bone. Then my son did the same. WTH is this stuff?! Truly awful. I trust everything from TJ but this is a bigggggg Miss.

    Flavor and texture are horrible. I agree with other reviewers about the gristle…there’s a lot of it. The meat from whole foods is a TON better

  14. Meg

    Bad product it’s all grizzle, greasy, tough, and bone. Does not taste like beef. Will not purchase again.

    Our first time visit Trader Joe’s in Huntsville and bought the Lean organic ground beef. It was a strange texture when I made burgers. So tough and full of gristle. I will never buy their meat again. I threw away in the garbage. Gross.

    Terrible. Texture of raw meat almost paste-like. Doesn’t brown like regular ground beef. Stayed pinkish until I turned the heat up to very high and I was cooking it way longer than I should and at way too high of a temp to brown broken up burger. Didn’t smell like ground beef when being cooked. White pieces seen in the meat. I threw it out because there is something odd about ground beef that doesnt brown. Not buying TJ beef again.

    What the hell did I just eat? Ground up Wildebeest? I couldn’t even kill the taste with spaghetti sauce. I had to eat my dogs food to get that tase out of my mouth. That five star rating was accidental.

    Yeah, agree with all of the above. I like TJs but this particular product is trash. HOPE I DONT GET SICK

    I don’t wanna give this any stars. This taste is awful, it tastes like cow’s intestines or internal organs. I trusted Trader Joe’s and bought 3 pounds of ground beef to cook, but ended up having to throw it all away. I’m shocked and almost want my money back.

  22. Donna Humphries

    Zero stars. We cannot eat this.

    I have never tasted an excuse for organic meat. This ground beef needs to be taken off of Trader Joes meat selection. It is tough, grisly, and tastes like horse meat. I am bringing it back already cooked.

    Didn’t smell strange but was difficult to break apart while cooking. Full of weird tendons or something, decided to give it a taste anyway bc I’m not that picky and it was unbelievably chewy. Then I noticed AFTER I took a bite that there was SKIN!?? Like maybe cow hyde with FUR and everything. I actually vomited. I’m not sure I can eat any kind of ground beef ever again. They’re grinding up the whole cow in this meat do not buy it look at all of these reviews!!!
