I was in a local supermarket today, and saw that they had ground beef half price. It was on sale, and not clearance, so the color was good. I bought this along with a few other items, and then went to the checkout.
The cashier put my items in one bag, and then the raw meat in the other one. I took the first lot of food, and put it in my cart, but couldn’t reach the second one.
The gentleman behind me said, “Don’t forget your hamburger”. I thanked him, and the cashier handed me the bag.
In England we always called it minced meat, as it had been minced in a grinder. Here in the states I have learned to say ground beef, but hamburger? Yes, hamburgers are made from it, but I am not a lover, and use mine for Shepherd’s pie.
I would be very interested to hear from my friends, as to what you call it, and where you live. Thanks in advance for your comments.
