Ground Chuck vs Ground Neck & Skirt
I keep on seeing these alternate in stores for hamburger patties and family pack specials in general.
So I ask which is best for:
P.S. I hope I can ask this during the nine days :)
Of course you can ask during the nine days, you just might not be able to buy it.
Ground chuck is fatty, usually 80% lean and is best used for grilling/broiling where the fat can run off #1
Neck and skirt is not only leaner, but sweeter/tastier (my favorite chopmeat)
Great for meatballs and meatloaf or hamburgers made in a frying pan.
For chili, or meat sauce, we often use ground chuck, but cook the ground beef first in the frying pan, then drain completely in a collander and then incorporate into the meat sauce or chili.
