When I've made recipes with ground beef lately, I am substituting 1/2 of the
beef with ground turkey-which is actually much cheaper right now, not to
mention healthier. No one has even noticed a difference in the food quality. I
made chili tonight and my room mate even said it was the best he'd ever had. Go
figure.

I'm reluctant to use ground turkey. As I understand it, unless
otherwise labeled, it is precisely that -- meat, skin, fat,
tendons(?), etc. -- put through a grinder. Yes, I know ground beef is
roughly the same, but I'm pickier about poultry than beef. With ground
turkey products ranging from 7-25% fat, it seems to be only slightly
less fatty than ground beef of similar variations. Although I may soon
be persuaded by "cheaper." :-)


If yoose were truely concerned with quality/price (yer NOT!) you'd grind your
own meat.... bitch, bitch, bitch... all yoose do is bitch and not have a
friggin' clue what yer bitching about. Brain dead morons.

Row-behr-to, I damn near croaked yesterday when I went to the
supermarket: BOGO on boneless chuck roasts. Kewl - that's what I like
for pot roasting. They're usually sale-priced at about $1/pound,
regular price being maybe $2.38-$2.68/pound. WERE. Yesterday, they
were marked $4.38/lb. cough hack choke gasp. My 4# roast was
~$17.68. Even getting two of them for that price brings them to ~$9
each! Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! But I bought them. And some chicken.

Local radio station farm director says it's due, in part, because beef
production was cut back -- demand typically slows after summer grilling
season. Only the demand did not decrease and cattle guys are now
shipping to market even before critter is fully finished in order to
meet the demand. (The Canadian import thing also came into play.) I
may pick up some TSP for some uses.

If you can get past the contents (and afterall, we all know where eggs
come from) you might consider another benefit of ground turkey - it
makes a decent substitute for ground veal.


And, hey, you can always grind your own....
