It does a decent job with ground meat as long as you have some liquid, such as sauces, oil or water. Does an excellent job pureeing spaghetti with ground beef and sausage. My husband has difficulty swallowing so needs his food smooth. I have not tried chopping meats such as chicken or beef. If mixed with mashed potatoes and gravy, I think it would work. Cut the meat in smallish pieces first though.
