Selecting lean meats (beef, pork, veal, game meat) is important to consuming less fat and calories so you continue to lose weight. Lean meats provide nutrition, variety, and flavor that can make a diet more enjoyable. Braising or stewing round cuts of beef can help increase the flavor and tenderness. Marinades, fat-free salad dressing, herbs and no/low-sodium seasonings can add flavor as well. Casseroles, stir-fry, or stews can make a little bit of meat go a long way. There may be times when lean cuts of ground meat (such as round, loin, sirloin, or flank) are unavailable.
As a last resort, you can reduce the fat content of any type of ground meat to contain as little fat as skinless chicken or turkey breast! All you have to do is cook the ground meat in a saucepan. Then place the meat into a colander in the sink. Finally, pour hot water over the meat to rinse the fat off. Remember, it’s best to consult your Diet Center Meal Planner for appropriate meat selections, so you can enjoy meat and still lose weight!
