Can someone help me put a stop to this?


My husband is driving me crazy with this and I like to no what you ladies think, who's right him, or me.

He keeps trying to tell me that hamburger is not just made with ground
beef, that it all has some pork grounded into it. He says they have to
put pork into every thing that's ground up.

Myself I think he's crazy and hamburger meat and ground beef are all made with just ground beef.

So ladies who's right him, or me?? I can take it if I'm wrong, but if I
am wrong, we'll just keep this between us and I won't let him know that
he's right after all.LOL

I'd never hear the end of it if he's right and I told him so.LOL

Which hamburgers?

Most burgers are beef and depending where you get them, it will say that on the label or on the menu.

Ground beef itself is supposed to be 100% beef. There shouldn't be any pork in it. There would be a lot of angry grocery shoppers if suppliers decided to sneak pork in since many cultures (or individuals) don't eat pork.

What a funny argument! LOL!

How did this even start?

You need to look at the labels I think. If a hamburger package does not say 100% pure beef, then usually it has some other meat in it. You can put ground pork into homemade hamburgers as well though, I have heard that it makes them juicier or more flavourful I think. Either way they are yummy!!!

Depends on which hamburgers

I think some of them only consists of beef but that is clearly stated on the label. Other hamburgers might have other meat ground up all together, especially the ones on the cheaper side.

So you guys are both right! Haha What a funny argument though it's really cute!

I knew I was right!!

We were watching man vs food of all things, his choice not mine and they
were talking about hamburgers. They showed some guy making a caribou
burger and the guy added a little port to the ground caribou. Now
because he's a hunter he has his elk and deer made into sausages, they
also add pork to the that ground meat. That's when he tried to hand me
that pork was in everything that was ground up even ground beef. I tried
to tell him he was nuts, that the stores can't do that unless they tell
you right on the package. I always but 100% ground beef, the leaner the
better and he's bin standing right there at time. I guess it's a man
thing, when they get something in they're head it's hard to remove it.

Thanks ladies, now I can tell him just how right I was and how wrong he still is.LOL

Oh and buy the way, we never got into a fight over it. When I know I'm
right about something and he thinks he is. I just drop it until I can
prove I'm right and then I hit him with it a few days later, when he's
not ready for it. It always makes for a good laugh.

Umm? haha!

I thought hamburgers have other things besides meat in them? Like breadcrumbs etc? (too much food network channel after school...)
Yum...i love pork in my hamburger...makes it all soft and stuff...
I also heard that when a label says " 100% Beef" in it they are really referring to the company that is named "100% Beef"...? Then again, that's probably just another MacDonald's rumour....I hope this answers your question Takoda! Except I haven't said anything exactly relevant. lol!

Did not see that post,

I must've posted right when you did, my bad!

Good Advice!

Takoda, I think I need to start doing that now with my boyfriend. Every time we get into one of these mini arguments, I should walk away and let him feel triumphant and then come back later and BAM, smack him right in the face with my right answer. Thank you! I learn something new everyday :)

After being with the same person for 25 years I learned to just walk
away from the silly things and come back later, but that's only if I
could even remember what we were yapping at each other about.LOL We use
to have our share of fights in the beginning too, but as time went on
and we got older, we realize just how silly a lot of it was and how much
more peaceful our life's were when we learned to just let the small
things go. We haven't had a big blow up in years, life's to short to be
spending it mad at each other all the time, or even half of the time. I
told myself I wasn't going to fight with him any more, because he always
thought he was right and he still tells me he knows every thing any
way, playfully of coarse he's not that bad. We also had a sick baby
seven years into this and that can really make you change your ways.
It's not about you any more at that point and you find out in a hurry if
your guy's going to be an ass and continue to fight over small things,
or stand by you and help. Most of these disagreements that we have now
are just over little silly things and are more playful then anything.
But I still like letting him knows he's wrong so we both can get a good
laugh about it. LOL

I sure hope things get better for the both of you Tammy. Give what I do a
try next time you find yourself in the middle of one of these silly
argument. Ask one of us what we think is the right answer, or look it up
on line, then show him the next day just how right YOU were.LOL
