I need to get beef here in BKK. Ideally I could get frozen 1/4lb burger patties but the dozen like McDonalds. I have been to FoodLand on Suk Soi 7. Ground beef is something like 325KG (Around 4.50lb) It's mostly water weight. Not good. Big C has fresh ground for 400KG. (B99 for 250G)  Tastes good, above average quality. Klong Toey outdoor market has beef but it's finely chopped, not ground. It also obviously has NO preservatives as it turns to dark grey in 24 hours,  refrigerated. I haven't asked. Will Klong Toey "grind" the beef if I ask? Maybe you have another source or ground meat. Not chicken or pork. I'd even take fatty steaks under 325KG. I'm starting a diet. Thank you.

I buy 150 day grain fed beef from Australia in Tops and it is expensive, but good.

 

2000 Baht + per kilo.

 

But I have bought cheese in the UK more expensive, so what the hell.

Try the Thai French Butcher on Sukhumvit Soi 33/1

 

I usually get Beef from there - most reasonable value (price vs quality). 

KU beef is also ok (Kasetsart Univiersity beef). 

 

Obviously imported beef is better, but a lot more pricey. 

 

You will be able to choose your cut and then ask them to mince it. i.e. Chuck which is probably best for minced beef.

Makro either does sell or used to sell this. Makroclick | เนื้อล้วนบดแช่แข็ง วัวออสเตรเลีย 1,000 กรัม

Perfectly good for any good ground beef recipe including hamburgers.  Not sure of the current price per kg.

Macro sell frozen Thai 'Wagyu' beefburgers, doubting whether they have ever seen Japan, but they are very reasonable, better than Tescos.

The Australian Wagyu Association is the largest breed association outside Japan. Both full blood and Wagyu cross cattle are farmed in Australia for domestic and overseas markets, including Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the U.K., France, Germany, Denmark and the U.S. Australian Wagyu cattle are grain fed for the last 300–500 days of production.

The Macro Wagyu Burgers are made from THAI Wagyu beef!

I tried this for a burger night month ago, and was pleasantly surprised. Would recommend, and it was cheap. Tops has the same beef but in a smaller package and higher price.

Thanks OEJ. That comes out to about $7.57 USD per quarter pound patty. Sounds delicious. Let me know next time you are having a BBQ. ;)

Thanks RS. Do you have an estimate of the cost? This sounds promising. :)

Thanks Stouricks. Sounds like Macro has both frozen patties and this 1KG bag. Any idea of the prices for either? Ballpark?

Why don't you buy the preservative free beef from the market, make your burgers, and then freeze them? 

Thanks Rick. I think this is my best option thus far. The problem is that they don't seem to use a meat grinder. It's more of a knife chopped. My Thai isn't good enough yet to make the necessary request. Maybe I'll drag a friend along. Cheers. :)

I was just pointing out that Wagyu beef is not exclusive to Japan. Patties in Scotland are made with Scottish Wagyu beef as the offcuts are relatively cheap compared to the steak cuts. It is a good selling point.
