The traditional recipe does call for chopped beef as well as suet. AFAIK,
of the commercial brands only Borden's Nonesuch actually contains those,
according to the label. Cross &Blackwell's doesn't (I just looked).
<rant>Considering that a 16oz jar of mincemeat costs $6-8 depending, enough
for 1 8in. pie, how does my local store produce their own pies for
$3.99???</rant> Not complaining, they're very good.
