Trader Joe’s Organic Ground Beef comes from sustainably raised cattle that are never given antibiotics or artificial growth hormones. The cattle are 100% grass fed, grazing on wide-open pastures – their diet of natural greens contributes to richly-flavored, well-marbled beef. 85/15 refers to the ratio of lean to fat, meaning that this Organic Ground Beef is 85% lean. It makes bodacious burgers, moist & juicy meatloaf, championship chili, mighty meatballs and terrifically tasty tacos, to name just a few possibilities. You’ll find it in our fresh meat case. At Trader Joe’s, our Organic Ground Beef represents an excellent value at $6.49 for a one pound package.
