How to Make Homemade Lunch Meat: A Step-by-Step Guide

Q: Can I use a different meat cut for this recipe? A: Yes, but front leg meat is recommended for its lean-to-fat ratio and texture. Q: Is it necessary to separate the fat and lean parts of the meat? A: Yes, for even blending and texture. Q: Can I adjust the steaming time? A: Yes, adjust based on the amount of meat; e.g., 35 minutes for half the amount of meat in this recipe.

Homemade Lunch Meat


  • Front leg meat: 1300g
  • Water: 260g
  • Lunch meat seasoning: 140g
  • Small amount of cooking oil
  1. Buy lean front leg meat, ideally with a lean-to-fat ratio of 2:8. Remove the skin and cut the meat into small pieces. Weigh the meat and prepare the seasonings in a cup.
  2. Add the calculated amount of water to the seasonings (1300g meat, 140g seasoning, 260g water), and mix well.
  3. First, grind the fat meat thoroughly.
  4. Grind the lean meat in batches with the seasoning water for better blending. Grind more for a smoother texture or less for a coarser texture.
  5. Brush a container with oil, add the meat mixture, and press firmly to remove air pockets.
  6. Lightly spray the surface with oil and press flat with a spatula.
  7. Cover with foil and steam over boiling water for an hour, adjusting time based on the quantity of meat.
  8. After steaming, remove excess water, and let the meat cool in the refrigerator before cutting.
  9. Once cooled, the meat shrinks and can be easily removed from the mold. Discard any excess water.
  10. Cut into pieces and vacuum-seal for storage. Consume within a week if refrigerated or freeze for longer storage.
  11. Use the trimmed edges for immediate consumption, possibly cooked in an air fryer without oil.
