Why is ground meat so popular?

Ground meat is probably American top 3 choices when it comes to meat. Ground meat, a low-budget meal is very popular around the world. There are many reasons
for its popularity. Ground meat is a good choice for a low-budget,healthy and easy meal.

Types of ground meat

Ground meat is meat that is finely chopped by a chopping knife or by a meat grinder. You can
purchase it or ground it yourself, it is up to you.
Good thing about buying it at the store is that you have meat that is ready for cooking. ground meat is a low-budget ingredient that you can purchase and make different meals.
Bad side is that you actually do not know if the less quality meat is minced and sold to you for a
certain price. For that reason, I like to buy meat and ground it myself.
The most common type of ground meat is beef, but of course you can use pork, veal, lamb, goat
meat or poultry. It is used in a wide variety of dishes. It can be mixed with other ingredients or
prepared by itself. It can be grilled (hamburger and kebab), fried, steamed and baked (meat balls
from the oven, or simple meat balls). For stuffing such as meat pie, filling as in stuffed peppers,
dolma and moussaka, sauces as in meat sauce, it is such a great choice. For  instant, low-budget,
healthy meal, you will always make a good choice with ground meat. So, if you are wondering
what to prepare from ground meat, stay on my blog and find the perfect recipe for you.

Be careful!

Red meat is tasty, but it is not recommended to be consumed more than 1 to 2 servings per week, which
is about 6 ounces. Although ground meat is a low-budget meal, people with high cholesterol or heart disease should limit red meat to 3 ounces per


Meatballs can be made in big batches. Freezing them will allow you to enjoy meatballs any day of the
week, especially when you don’t have time to prepare food from scratch.

Remember, ground meat- a good choice for a low-budget meal.
You can make so many different meals with meatballs.
My favorites are spaghetti and meatballs, meatballs from the oven, and of course Swedish meatballs.
