    This a great guide. I love ground beef and I never knew the differences between all the designations on the package, besides the obvious fat content. Thanks for taking the time to share and I hope your pregnancy is going well!

    I always thought ground pork was fattier than ground beef, so this is interesting! Thanks for the info =)

    Seriously! Who would have known? I just always buy extra lean ground beef.

    Thanks for all this info. I actually didn’t know all these differences. We are using turkey, so now I can make sure we are getting the best.

    Just an FYI, the info above is only accurate for the US. In Canada, they have a different grading system. We have regular ground beef (highest fat), medium ground beef, lean ground beef and extra lean ground beef.

    OK I need to comment on this one. You did a good job with grading your hamburger BUT…. After spending 20 years as a Meat Wrapper (retired- Now a Nurse) Let me add to it. I have ran a follow up post on my blog and feel free to link or refer to it
