Minced Meat

Minced meat is meat that has been finely chopped with a knife or a mincing machine. This can be made of pork, veal, lamb, goat or poultry, or a combination of more than one type of meat. Minced meat is made from a combination of lean meat and fat trimmings that are not substantial enough to be sold on their own. Minced meat is used in a variety of dishes as it is easy to prepare and store.
