The Different Types of Ground Beef. When it comes to buying ground beef for your easy dinner ideas, there are a few things to know. To start, you will want to know where the beef is cut from, the fat content and the coarseness of the grind which can vary. When you are purchasing ground beef, the following are some of the types of ground beef that are available. Regular ground beef. This ground beef for your easy dinner ideas is usually the blend with the highest fat content, which is about 25 to 30 percent. Regular ground beef is cut from the trimmings of inexpensive cuts such as brisket and shank. Regular ground beef is the ground beef that is the least expensive, and while it does have the most flavor, it will shrink the most when it is cooked because of its high-fat content. This type of ground beef is the juiciest and the most flavorful.

Ground Chuck. Ground chuck is another type of ground beef you can use for your family-friendly meal ideas. This ground beef contains about 15 to 20 percent fat and comes from the front area of the cow around the shoulder. This ground beef is great all-purpose ground meat because it is not as fatty as regular ground beef, but it still has good flavor. Ground chuck may also be labelled as lean ground beef. Ground round. This ground beef has about 12 percent fat and is ground from the lower end of the animal near the tail area. If you want to cook the meat into a sauce recipe or with some vegetables, this ground meat is a wise choice because it has less fat. And because you will be mixing it with other ingredients, the less-beefy flavor of the ground round won't matter.
