Premium quality locally sourced. Meat, such as beef, is mainly composed of protein. Usually eaten as roasts, ribs, or steaks, beef is also commonly ground or minced. Patties of ground beef are often used in hamburgers. Processed beef products include corned beef, beef jerky, and sausages. Fresh lean beef is rich in various vitamins and minerals, especially iron and zinc, and is therefore recommended as part of a healthy diet.
