Featured Ingredient

Ground Beef


Ground beef is a popular type of meat that is made from grinding up various cuts of beef. It is usually made from tough cuts of meat that contain a lot of connective tissue, such as chuck steak or round roast.

However, it can also be made from leaner cuts of meat, such as sirloin or Angus beef.

When choosing ground beef, it is important to look for freshness and marbling. Fresh ground beef will be pink in color and should not have any strong odors.

Marbling refers to the amount of fat that is interspersed with the muscle tissue. Ground beef with a higher fat content will be more tender and juicy, but it will also shrink more during cooking.

Ground Cumin


Ground cumin is a spice that is popular in many cuisines, including Indian, Mexican, and Middle Eastern.

It has a warm, earthy flavor that pairs well with other spices like chili powder and coriander.

Cumin is made from the dried seeds of the cumin plant. In Indian cooking, it is often used in curries, while in Mexican cuisine it is used to flavor tacos and enchiladas. Ground cumin can also be added to rice Dishes or sprinkled on roasted vegetables.

No matter how it is used, ground cumin adds a unique flavor to any dish.
