  • Anyone eat ground beef on a regular basis??

    I added grass fed ground beef into my diet in replacement of chicken thighs. Chicken got so boring to eat and plus I thought it'd be better if I ate more grass fed. I understand ground beef are the less desirable cuts, but it's the best grass fed beef I can afford and I want to start eating more grass fed. But I saw a two posts where mark says avoid ground beef, but doesn't state in general or conventional ground beef. Anyone eat grass fed ground beef on a regular basis?

    Yep. Kids like mince more than steak, so we eat mince pretty much every week.

    It's very versatile, since you can use it in curries, meatloaf, stir fries and... sometimes we slow cook mince too, not that it needs it.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

      I have it at least a few times a week - grass fed only. I'm comfortable with ground beef if its grass fed or I grind my own. Grass fed is less prone to e coli vs CAFO beef not to mention the better nutritional profile.

            I think the idea about avoiding ground beef is that it comes from hunscrillions of beef animals all mixed together, so it's far more prone to contamination. I usually buy ground beef that comes from a single animal, grass-fed, locally raised. Usually one that I've seen across a fence and waved to on a couple of occasions. They don't wave back, but it mitigates the risks I think you're worried about.

            And it's both tastier and has a better nutritional profile than the chicken. You're making a good change. WTG.

              We eat ground beef and venison. And it all comes from a single cow, or the deer we hunt ourselves. (by "we" I mean hubby ) My kids prefer hamburger-based meals over any other cut of beef. I could make burgers, tacos, spagetti and 'garbage stir fry' every week and everyone would be happy.

              Eat the best you can afford, and keep in mind the 'worst' primal eating is still better than the best SAD diet. (if there were such a thing).

                Where does Mark say that? I remember Mark saying don't eat raw or rare ground beef. Be sure it's fully cooked. We eat it as often as we can get it.

                  Eating Australian grass-fed ground beef post-workout.

                  It's easy to control the portion size, smash some herbs/salt in there, sear it on the outside in grass-fed butter, then cook it till just a little pink on the inside. Tastiness.

                  Plus Arnold used to chow-down on hamburger patties back in the day, so it must work.

                    Grassfed ground beef is honestly one of my favorite foods. I have it once or twice per week, usually with peppers and onions... amazing. If I could afford it, I'd have it every night.

                      We eat it regularly, too; it's really versatile and convenient, and usually one of the cheapest muscle meats available at the farmer's market.

                      My favorite recipe is to cook ground beef with sauteed onions and some salt...just when it's close to being ready, add a glass of red wine and let it cook down.

                          Once a week probably, also love how easy it is to mash in onions, etc.

                              we eat it too, and i would be happy to pretty much never eat chicken again. we get 85/15 and it's very satisfying, and yeah, can be cooked up all sorts of ways.
                              As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
