I saw Alton Brown use a food processor to grind meat once.
I think he gave it exactly 10 pulses to get the grind he wanted.
Maybe you could find his method online somewhere. *Wait,

Yes, I have used ABs technique for this exact recipe and it works jes
fine. *The trick is to put the meat in the freezer, but not let it get
hard frozen. *Jes real firm, to where it's jes beginning to freeze

I also use the food processor. It works great. You just pulse
until you get the meat to the grind
you prefer for what you are using it for. I use chuck to make
hamburgers and it works like a charm.
