    Thumbs up Lean ground beef






    Not sure about where you're at, but where I live the leanest ground beef I could find was 93% lean. Until now that is.

    Tonight I was at my regular super and they started stocking 96% lean ground beef! A 4 oz serving (raw) has 140 kcal, 24g protein, and 4.5g of fat. That works out to 29% calories from fat. Compare that to the 93% with 170 kcal, 26g protein, and 8g of fat for the same 4 oz serving, which derives 42% of its calories from fat.

    Of course I tried some tonight for dinner, and it tastes great

    I get my ground sirloin from the local butcher and I literally pic out the piece of sirloin I want grounded. He cuts all the visible fat and then grinds it for me. Its not cheap but its the leanest around and the tastiest.

    96% is hard to come by, but gold when you find it. Another tip to further reduce the fat by a few grams: Immediately after cooking ground beef ina pan, pour into a strainer and run HOT water over the beef. This will reduce the fat count tremendously as well

    I always cook my lean ground beef by almost boiling it, then rinsing it in a strainer, to get rid of more fat. A meat cutter recommended it to me!

    Laura's lean is great. She even has a steak line in some stores. Her top round steak only has 4.5 g fat as opposed to regular store bought's 7g

    I get pissed off though when they're out of stock. Everytime I go in the store I purchase it all. If I don't by the time I'm ready to get more, it's all gone and the shipment won't be coming for a while. Anyway. Had it happen, ticked me off. Now, I eliminate it and stock up. Especially when I'm preparing for a comp.

    Great tip Leslie. BTW, where in Jersey are you? I'm close to Philly. ShopRite is the food chain that just started stocking their own label 96% lean.

    I was glad to read some of the above because I thought that I was the only one to get really peed off when the store only has 90% lean vs. 95% lean, I never buy the former and always insist on the latter and even moan to the guys in the store & often get them to go & check the storeroom etc..

    nice to read comments from like minded folks
