The Essential Guide To Ground Beef

Ground beef has long been a family meal favorite. Although it is made using boneless beef trimmings once other beef cuts & steaks have been created then blended with a specific percentage of fat, it may be taken from many traditional bone-in portions that are typically the more economical parts of the cow. Chuck is chosen a good bit as it already includes a bit of fat. Once cooked, ground beef pairs well with both tomato-based & cream sauces to produce rich & satisfying dinners. When purchasing ground beef, it’s generally priced according to the percentage of fat that has been used to prepare that particular batch. A package marked 80% will have more while 93% will have less therefore the final yield of a pound may vary slightly after browning with the latter resulting in just a bit more. According to USDA standards, ground beef can be made using no more than 30% fat. Learn about the types of ground beef available & what cooking applications may be used to prepare them.

Ground beef is prepared by grinding beef trimmings & labeled according to the cut used to prepare it as well as the amount of fat that is either found naturally or added. It may be packaged a number of ways ranging from placing it on a simple styrofoam tray then wrapping it with cling wrap to modified atmosphere packaging in which air is removed & replaced with a special blend of purified air to create a more stable environment. This packaging extends the shelf life & maintains a desirable bright red appearance to the beef for a longer amount of time. Beef chubs typically shaped in cylinders & vacuum packed ground beef that appear more as bricks have a much greater shelf life comparatively. Get a better understanding of what the labeling on the package truly means.
