Americans have been cooking and enjoying ground beef since the first hamburger sandwich was introduced at the St. Louis Fair in 1903. Tasty, economical, nutritious, and easy to prepare, ground beef is a popular choice for busy families.

Ground beef or hamburger is labeled with varying fat content, usually from about 27% fat (the maximum is 30%) to a very lean 5% fat. You can eliminate much of the excess fat in recipes calling for cooked or browned ground beef. Drain browned ground beef and transfer to a dish lined with paper towels; blot cooked meat all over with paper towels, transfer to a colander, then rinse with very hot water. For burgers, meatballs, and similar dishes, leaner ground beef should be used. To cut down on the fat in meat loaf, a rack or meat loaf pan will keep the loaf from sitting in the fat drippings.

Some of the more popular dishes made with ground beef are hamburgers, meat loaf, chili, meatballs, casseroles, pasta sauces, and various Mexican dishes. You'll find several appetizer and main dish ideas in the ground beef and hamburger recipes and links below.
