Grinding Cooked Meat

OK, last Friday I started an overnight marinade of a couple of London Broil cuts for the next day.  The next day turned into the following Monday.  They were just fine, but really spicy, and are destine for the automatic leftover cache in the freezer.  Today is the first chili weather day of the year here, and I'm thinking of making some.

Have any of you ground already cooked meat?  I'd rather freeze this than waste it trying to make chili, if it is going to be disappointing.

    For chili I always use cubed (not ground ) meat.

    IMO grinding COOKED meat sure sounds like what I might expect in the HOME.....

    beef i would cube for chili. ive tried adding pulled pork to things like soupe and it shreds like hair, definatly grind pulled pork. pot roast beef i think i would grind after my experience with pulled pork as well
  • no different than making a chopped beef sandwich out of cooked brisket. It's done all the time and absolutely nothing wrong with it.There are places here that actually grind their cooked brisket for chopped beef so I say go for it.

    Cubed or ground would be wonderful. If the steak is tender throw it in last for a short amount of cooking time.
