Buying Ground Beef

Farm cattle

 

When cattle are processed into cuts, such as sirloin steaks or filet mignon, the small pieces left over can be ground up to be sold as ground beef. Will these trimmings make a good hamburger or is it better to buy ground beef that has been ground from whole muscle? You might be surprised at the answer.
