    Ground chuck is from the neck of the beef and has a nice amount of fat. It's cheaper but better( good chopped meat needs fat).

    Ground Round is extremely lean and as the person above me said makes a hard meatloaf( or hamburger).Ground

    Round is from the top round( butt section) of the steer.

    Chopped meat can be any beef trimmings from any cuts of beef that accumulated during a day at the shop.

    Chuck comes from the shoulder of the cow, round comes from the butt, and ground beef comes from anywhere! The price of which is cheaper depends on how much they have in the shop. Chuck is often used for pot roast since it's not as tough. You can also get some good steaks out of a chuck like Flat Iron steak.

    It depends how much fat is ground into it.

    Ground beef has the most, then ground chuck, and ground round has very little.

    For some uses, the groud meat needs to be fattier.

    Ground round would make a dry and crumbly meatloaf, for example.

    Chuck is not a tender cut of meat, round is better, but the best for ground beef in my opinion is topside. Much tastier. I have never heard of ground/minced chuck, we use that exclusively for stews & casseroles in Australia.

    They are all different cuts of beef. The "round" comes from the shoulder and "chuck" comes from the rump. Both of these muscle groups get worked a lot when the animal is moving around, and consequently they can be quite tough and but also very flavourful. Because it generally takes more time and effort to turn tougher cuts into good eats, these are usually fairly inexpensive as well. The sirloin is from the hip area, just forward of the chuck, and it doesn't get worked as much so it is more tender (and expensive) but somewhat less flavourful than the other two. Grinding the meat breaks down all the connective tissues in hard-working muscles and tenderizes it to a large degree. If you're going to make burgers or meatloaf or something along those lines, a good way to go is to blend a couple of different cuts to get a balance of tenderness and flavour. Try half sirloin and half chuck, see how you like it and then adjust future recipes as you like.
