This casserole recipe idea calls for ground chuck. Ground chuck is the most popular ground of beef on the market. Ground chuck comes from the shoulder and neck area of the cow and is usually quite fatty and for this reason has quite a bit of flavoring. Beef muscle meat can be cut into different things from short ribs, beef roasts, or steaks such as filet mignon, sirloin steaks, rump steak, rib steak, rib eye steak, and hanger steak. Some beef cuts are processed into food items such as beef jerky and corned beef, and the beef trimmings, which are typically mixed with meat from older, more lean cattle, are ground and minced for use in sausage recipes. The United States, China, and Brazil are the world's three largest consumers of beef.
