What is ground beef?

Beef mince , ground beef or hamburger meat (in North America), or mince(d) meat (in the rest of the English speaking world) is a minced meat food, made of beef finely chopped by a mincer (meat grinder).

It is used in many recipes including hamburgers and cottage pie.

In some parts of the world a mincer is sometimes called a meat grinder, although the device works by a process of fine chopping (mincing) and not grinding.

In many countries, food laws define specific categories of ground beef and what they can contain.

For example, in the United States, beef fat may be added to hamburger, but not to ground beef if the meat is ground and packaged at a USDA-inspected plant.

A maximum of 30% fat by weight is allowed in either hamburger or ground beef.

Both hamburger and ground beef can have seasonings, but no water, phosphates, extenders, or binders added. Ground beef is often marketed in a range of different fat contents, to match the preferences of different customers.

Ground beef is usually made from leaner , tougher and less desirable beef created when the sides of beef are carved into steaks and roasts. About 17-18% of US ground beef comes from dairy cows.
