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
