Will this recipe work with all ground beef?
Bison, elk, ostrich, venison, or beef? Yes, beef. All ground beef is created equal as far as this recipe is concerned. You will want to use the best quality ground beef that you can find.
I would suggest that you go to your local butcher and see what they have available and if they will sell grass-fed meat in bulk.
