Ground beef is extremely affordable. It’s also very adaptable and can be used in formed applications like burgers, meatballs & meatloaf, or can be broken up and browned for use in tacos & sauces. It’s typically produced from tougher cuts that offer excellent flavor but need to be ground to be tender. This ground beef is only ground from whole muscles, never trim, which gives it superior texture.

This beef has been ground with an 85%/15% lean/fat ratio. This fat ratio is perfect for burgers, meatballs, meatloaf, and other formed applications because the fat will help keep them moist.
