Ground vs Chopped

Ground beef seems to be the term used these days. Was there a time when hamburger meat was referred to as chopped meat? Or was that only in South Brooklyn?

There is a difference. I don't think they sell chopped beef, just ground. You have to chop up beef with a knife to get chopped. Ground is put through a grinder.
Well, they do sell precooked chopped bbq. They probably use to call it chopped before all the truth in packaging and advertising stuff. lol

Well how 'bout that. I live in Erie County. Good to know we're known for something
Don't tell YT, though.... he'll have to add hamburger to his very short list of American "dishes". Right next to KFC

I remember eating out and ordering "chopped sirloin" a lot when I was a kid. I don't remember it being any different than a hamburger patty, except it was served sans the bun and with beef gravy
