Good-for-you ground beef is perfect for families in the fast lane. Forever flexible, ground beef can be pan-fried for meat sauces and casseroles or shaped into burgers, meatballs and more family favourites.
|Ground Beef Type||Best Use|
|Ground Sirloin, Ground Round and Ground Chuck||All lean or extra lean, these varieties have unique beef flavour, depending on the cut used. Use in recipes where beef flavour is the feature.|
|Extra Lean||Great for flavour packed recipes that you don’t drain after cooking. Use in meatloaf or cabbage rolls.|
|Lean||Canada’s No. 1 grind is a good all-purpose choice. Use in all kinds of ground beef recipes.|
|Medium and Regular||Use for grilling, broiling or pan-frying. When pan-frying, brown and drain to reduce fat before adding into your recipe. Use Medium in burgers and meatballs, and Regular or Medium in pasta sauces and casseroles.|
