While ground meat is versatile and often costs less than larger cuts of meat, it does have a downside. Ground meat contains more surfaces for bacteria to grow on. It needs to be thoroughly cooked to a safe temperature. The U. S. Department of Agriculture says to cook ground meats to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Checking the temperature with a digital thermometer is recommended. Properly cooked and creatively spiced, ground meat makes a dandy basis for a sandwich meal!
