What Part of the Cow Does Ground Beef Come from?

Answer

Ground beef can be made from any cut of the cow. Different brands may use different cuts of beef depending on many factors, primarily cost. The less tender parts of a cow may be used for cheaper brands of ground beef. Grinding the meat tenderizes it which allows it to be formed into any shape, such as a beef patty.
