Tips for Buying Ground Beef

To make sure you're buying lean ground beef, read the label to determine the percentage of fat rather than relying on the name of the specific cut. The percentage of lean to fat is usually listed on the label near the name of the cut. Ground beef with 10% fat or less is sometimes labeled "ground sirloin" or "extra-lean."
