Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 18. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Keystone Ground Beef

Supply note: Keystone is not producing ground beef for the foreseeable future. You're still welcome to place a preorder to hold your place in line for whenever it's available again, and we'll email you an update when we learn when to expect our next shipment. You won't be charged until the meat is in stock.


Keystone ground beef is 94% lean beef sourced from premium beef chuck and round, domestically raised and processed. Keystone ground beef (never frozen) is sealed in the BPA-free can with no water added, then slow-cooked in a pressure cooker. Keystone ground beef has outstanding taste, texture and tenderness.

Keystone canned beef contains only two ingredients: USDA Premium beef, and a small amount of sea salt.

Using Keystone canned beef is so quick and easy! Because it’s fully pre-cooked, just remove from the can, heat up and serve! Keystone canned beef is perfect in beef BBQ, stir fry, tacos, soups, stews, casseroles and more.

  • “Envision buying a big chuck steak and spending an hour trimming as much fat as possible. Then putting it in a can. High quality chuck meat, very well trimmed, no gristly pieces… It'd be nearly impossible to describe how incredibly convenient and good tasting this product is.”

    – Larry F, VA


You can actually save money with our quality canned meats, even though they cost a little more than refrigerated meats. Surprised? And that's not all; we're also going to explain how Keystone meats do things that regular fresh meat can't. Sound crazy? Well, hear us out...

Imagine being approached by someone who asks you, "Would you like to buy a can of electricity?" That might seem strange, but consider a comparison: The national average cost of electricity is less than ten cents per kilowatt hour. With that ten cents worth of power you can light a 40 watt bulb for 25 hours. Now imagine that a salesman at your door offered to sell you some canned electricity, the same one-kilowatt quantity, "for the bargain price of $3.00." Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But people actually do buy quite a bit of canned electricity, which is just another name for batteries.

We wouldn't suggest replacing all the power you get from the wall socket with battery power. But for many uses, "canned electricity" is so useful and convenient you'd probably have a hard time getting along without it. Think about those cans of electricity in your flashlight, portable radio, camera... the list goes on and on. Considering what it can do, in fact, canned electricity actually is a real bargain. And our canned meats offer the very same value, with one big exception: The cost difference between our canned meats and the "uncanned" kind is miniscule compared to the premium we gladly pay for the convenience of canned electricity!

"Where's the Beef?" Fresh meat is terrific! You pick some up when you're grocery shopping, put it in your fridge, maybe your freezer, and use it in delicious stir fries, roll-ups, casseroles... burgers on the grill. But then something happens... it's gone! There's more at the store, but you're at home. Or you need it right now. This conundrum generally has three components: Availability, transportation cost, and time.


Your menu plans call for some meat, and you're fresh out—pardon the pun. Of course it's possible that you never forget to buy enough, but then you probably never lose your keys or misplace your glasses, either. (If this is true, we don't want to hear about it. Really.) For the rest of us, it happens. And when it does, going away to pick up some meat hasn't been factored into our plans and may not be practical. At such times, having a variety of excellent canned meats to select from means you don't have to change plans or do without... you just reach for a can of quality, delicious canned meat, without skipping a beat. Sailboat owners are among our most avid canned meat customers.


Ordering our canned ground beef (or beef chunks, or chicken, turkey or pork) for delivery to your door won't involve buying any gas at all. Leave the mileage off your car—FedEx comes through your neighborhood anyway!


Time: It's money, they say. If you know what your time is worth in "dollar terms" you can easily figure out how much an extra trip to the store dings your budget. But time is more than money too. Time is the opportunity to do what you want to for a while... and for most of us, some extra city driving isn't high on our wish list. And there's more: Our meats save you preparation time. There's no trimming or cutting to do, and since they're fully precooked, you just heat and serve!


We're being advised from many quarters, today, to have some food on hand for one kind of emergency development or another. A variety of circumstances can create a short-term or even long-term need to have food on hand. Food that doesn't require refrigeration, in the event that power goes out for a while. If you don't want to live on beans, macaroni or tofu indefinitely, our canned chicken, canned turkey, canned beef & canned pork will put some great meat on your plate. Our canned meats are guaranteed to remain good-as-new for five years, but customers say they've enjoyed them after far more than five years of storage. The only thing likely to shorten lifespan is attack by outside moisture rusting through the can, and preventing that is as simple as storing the cans in a dry, clean area.


We offer two ways to purchase our quality Keystone canned meats. If you know what you want (maybe you're already back for more), a case of 24 cans with a net weight of 14.5 ounces per can, or a case of twelve cans with a net weight of 28 ounces per can; some natural juices cook out of the meat during pressure cooking, and can be used in your cooking. The 14.5 ounce cans measures 3" in diameter by 3-3/8" tall outside, the 28 ounce cans measure 4" in diameter by 4-3/4" tall on the outside. If you want to try before you order by the case, we offer a sampler pack.

Compare to most other canned meats and you'll find that they use inferior cuts compared to what goes into our product. Another significant difference in all of our canned meats is that they're salted only lightly, not excessively as so many canned goods are.

    We have been having chili often during the virus and could not find hamburger here. We ordered the ground beef in cans and it was back ordered but still came early. It was packed well.

  • I was pleasantly surprised!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Never having used canned beef I didn’t know what I was to expect. Each can held a very good sized portion of *fully cooked*, crumbled ground beef in a little water and salt. The smell was what one would expect from unseasoned meat. The pieces broke up easily with no large clumps. I used one can in a spaghetti sauce, adding my own seasonings, and found it to be very tasty! Even my finicky husband approved. Next is shepherd’s pie.

    The meat was not pre-seasoned except for salt. I am conscious of too much salt and did not find it to be over-salted. The delivery was reasonable considering high volume. The box was packed responsibly and safely (no dings on cans). I will absolutely shop Pleasant Hill Grain again!

  • Tacos, sloppy Joes, tortillas with beef and cheese, beef soup
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Deliciously full of flavor! Use your imagination. This pre-cooked ground beef comes with all the juices and enough fat to make flavorful soups or gravies, spiced ground beef entrées like tacos, nachos, beef with rice and veggies. I promise this is a purchase you will reorder with confidence.

    Love that this only has meat and sea salt in it, instead of all the artificial ingredients and preservatives. Great service, quick shipping and packed really well! Will shop for all my supplies.
