Ground beef, also known as minced beef or hamburger meat, is a versatile and widely consumed form of beef that has been finely chopped or ground into small pieces. It is made by processing various cuts of beef, including chuck, sirloin, or a combination of cuts.
Ground beef is a popular choice for its convenience and wide range of culinary possibilities. It is commonly used as a base ingredient in numerous dishes, including hamburgers, meatballs, meatloaf, chili, tacos, Bolognese sauce, and many more.
Ground beef is known for its rich flavor and juicy texture. The fat content can vary depending on the type of ground beef used, such as lean, regular, or extra-lean. The fat contributes to the meat’s tenderness and helps to keep it moist during cooking, while also adding flavor.
