I'm sure you guys will know. I have no clue. ???

Seems like ground beef is 80/20 and ground chuck is always 85/15 for some reason. shrug

And then there's another one called ground sirloin. shrug

You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

It has to do with what cuts were ground...


Ground Chuck comes from the Chuck, ground round the round, ground sirloin, the sirloin, etc.

Ground beef, can be from any part of the beef, and is usually the leftovers after the more expensive cuts are...cut...

Grinding cow and grinding the guy grinding the cow? Grinding different cut give different flavor from meat/fat ratios etc etc.
I prefer the face. The cheek meat is so good. People look at you funny in the urban areas when you are going up the driveway holding a severed head, even if it is just a cows head...

The good tasting ground beef says 73% lean, 27% fat. It has the best flavor for making hamburgers period. It shrinks the most when you cook it though. There is less of it in the supermarkets due to more and more people eating out and I don't think the Giant Eagle super market chain even sells it. It's in demand by restaurants because of its flavor.

Winn Dixie was always good for the meat cuts. I usually got the 80/20 or the leanest meat patties they had, since that is still a lot of fat. It was very expensive, though.

Add on some seasoning just after it cooks to a red center, test with a fork to see if it is how you like it and, voila.

In any Publix store there is a wonderful product called market Ground beef.

Try it. It is terrific...

I don't normally buy burger at Publix, but when I do, it's market ground beef.

I avoid red meet but if at a BBQ and there is no chicken then maybe a burger. But never never a hot dog. We do not buy red meat. Do get ground turkey however.

I worked at a couple smaller meat departments in my Teen days.

Anything that was not made into a normal cut was ground beef. Normally we ground shanks into ground beef cause we could get them cheaper than anything else.
So it could be anything really unless its marked as a special grind, then only if they are honest.

MERKAVA_4 ,buy a grinder and grind chuck roasts. I buy basically anything on markdown, and grind my own. It tastes like meat when you cook it. We did ribeyes last weekend, had one extra. I ground it and cooked it to medium on the grill the next day. Best Burgers Ever.

Wow, that stinks. Publix is an excellent store, at least in Florida...
