From the 2 choices given, i think i'll go for the minced beef. I dont eat turkey cos i was brought up to either minced beef and minced pork. Actually minced beef really got that very stong smell that puts me off but still i think it would be the best option. I really prefer minced pork, it taste really very nice.

ground beef - like it@!!!
i like both!!!many countries, food laws define specific categories of ground beef and what they can contain. For example in the US, beef fat may be added to hamburger, but not to ground beef if the meat is ground and packaged at a USDA-inspected plant[1]. A maximum of 30% fat by weight is allowed in either hamburger or ground beef. Both hamburger and ground beef can have seasonings, but no water, phosphates, extenders, or binders added. Ground beef is often marketed in a range of different fat contents, to match the preferences of different customers.

I'm a real red meat kind of person so I'd have to go with beef.Any kind of beef,ground or not.Don't get me wrong I like turkey too,just not ground and made into a patty.Can't ever get it to taste good that way.

I agree with you to a certain extent...I wouldnt want my turkey made into a patty because there woulf be no taste...I enjoy that you can dd it in with things, and it has the taste its supose to have...I love red meat, but every now and than turkey is a good add on!

I have only used ground turkey once. The flavour and texture is totally different from ground beef and, for what I use it for (cottage pie or pasta sauce) it is not nice. I think one could make burgers or sausages out of ground turkey but I still don't think the flavour would appeal to me. I use ground beef and ground lamb most often. I have several times had burgers made of ground ostrich. I found them indistinguishable from the best fatless beef (ostrich meat actually contains so little fat that it's necessary to add a little oil in order to cook them.) We have an ostrich farmer fairly close and he comes to most of the farmer's markets near us. His meat is rather expensive so I have never bought any but I do enjoy the burgers he cooks!

I prefer ground beef:) that is because I don't have a choice. I don't eat turkey. But if you have ground pork in your choice, I would definitely pick ground pig:)+ YOu might be wondering why I don't eat turkey, its because in the Philippines we don't eat turkey:( yikes! also we are more of pork eater than beef why? because beef is more expensive there. So most like to eat pork. Now I am used to pork and loving it so I prefer pork really.

Ground beef. It just taste better. Ground turkey is healthier, leaner. Ground beef is not so great for us, especially fried into hamburgers. But it is so yummy!!!

You know whats funny is that I was brought up on ground beef all of my life, and I finnally tried it one time when I was making a mexican dip..and it was so delicious, a lot of people said they even liked it better that way...Im not sure though its a tough decision for me...i think you can do different things with them that make them equally attractive...
