I thought this pamphlet from the Iowa Beef Industry Council was worth sharing.
Look at the difference blotting and rinsing your meat can make! It reduced the calories by 100 in 80% lean beef.
Of course, I always recommend buying no less than 93% lean, but you can still try these techniques.

Another great way to reduce the calories and saturated fat is to combine 1lb beef with 1lb ground turkey breast and then make your patties.

Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
