Things I Don't Understand

Why is ground turkey/chicken so much less plentiful on grocery store shelves as compared to ground beef?

  • Beef can sit around a couple of weeks and be called aged?

  • It's because ground turkey and chicken tastes like crap.

  • Robert is correct, but also, because there is a lot of excess product waste from processing cows that can be turned into salvageable material in the form of ground beef. Sounds disgusting, I know. The real tough cuts of beef that otherwise wouldn't sell get used in ground beef since it is a higher margin product.

  • I've never tried ground chicken (its hard to find) but ground turkey tastes fine to me.

    Yeah I wondered if maybe there was more 'spare cow' to spread around vs. spare poultry - that might help with the cost tradeoff...

  • That's easy. Cows are bigger.

  • Then why no ground elephant?

    Got you there.
