Ground pork may be made from the muscle meat and fat of any part of the animal. It is often labeled according to the percentage of fat it contains and is considered lean if it is less than 17% fat. Ground pork, like ground beef, is an easy-to-prepare, quick-cooking meat that can be used by itself or in an endless variety of casseroles, meat loaves, or other specialty dishes such as meatballs.
