Ground beef or ground turkey?
I have the Round steaks, maybe will buy some Flanks, but for easy quick food I can cook up ahead of time and nuke and have it still taste ok, I'm wanting to make up some burgers.
And if beef, which cut would be best. I usually only buy ground Turkey (85/15) at our house.

Well, if you live closer to a Sams Club I'd say go for the Ground Steak...
I bought 90/10 Ground Beef in Burguer patties shape already for 2.90/lb, a damn steal, tastes great and it's pretty good for you.Androhard + Andromass Log

I've done what you're talking about and it works well. Once a week I'll make up several patties. I've run the meat of choice through a cheap manual grinder and then mix in chives, spices, whatever to make it taste good without compromising the macros. Then form them into 4-6 oz patties and cook them most of the way. I'll steam some broccoli or cauliflower and then split them into small tupperware containers. Lunch/dinner is now done for the week. I'll mix up the spices for variety and just mark it on a piece of masking tape to see which ones I like or am in the mood for. Then I throw them in the freezer and take it out whenever I need it and just heat it up in the microwave. The moisture from the veggies keeps the meat nice and moist too.Serious Nutrition Solutions rep

Just something to consider
there are other resources that detail it, but basically buying the $1/lb 70/30, brown it as crumbles, then pour boiled water over it to rinse off the fat, then drain it. You end up with leaner beef than the 93/7. Sure you lose some by the pound, but you lose under 30%

Yep, I can buy the 70/30 for $1 a pound, even the 80/20 is $2 a pound, and the 93/7 is around 3+. just do the math as %, if I get them both as lean as I can with rinsing (roughly 5% fat) 5lbs raw yields
70/30 - 75% - 3.75lbs for $5 = $1.33 per pound of net 95/5 beef
80/20 - 85% - 4.25lbs for $10 = $2.35 per pound of net 95/5 beef
93/75 - 95% - 4.75lbs for $15 = $3.16 per pound of net 95/5 beef
it just takes extra time to do it, but isn't bad if you do 5lbs at a time.

I love turkey and I mean love turkey so it is mostly what I use. I feel it is up to preference.
