I've made this with 100%% beef and 50%% each beef and turkey with excellent results. The advantage over commercial salami is a substantial reduction of fat by using lean ground beef or grinding the beef from the lowest fat cuts. Could also be made from ground chicken or veal but I haven't tried them.
