I will agree with the Foreman grill. In my opinion, it doesn't work so well on chicken, but burgers work fantastic in it.

I agree, grilling is the best. I buy ground sirloin as it is the leanest. If you cook this way often, you may want to invest in one of those George Foreman grills. It's pretty handy.

I also like getting lean ground turkey, cook it in the skillet, drain any grease and dump a can of Manwich in it. Very tasty and served with a side salad makes it a very easy meal to make.

Those who only talk about it are usually passed up by those who are quiet & actually doing it. Life's a climb but the view is great.

Grilling is the absolute easiest way. My hubby actually grilled the other night - it was super chilly. We have invested in an electric indoor grill that you can add liquid smoke to for flavor. When we are in a hurry the foreman grill works because it cooks from both sides at the same time - generally not as tender this way though.

Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your full potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible to do.

The leaner the beef the better. This information should be on the packaging. As for cooking it, do you have access to a grill? Grilling will allow the excess fat to drain off. You could also use a grill pan - this pan will have raised ridges on it's interior and the burgers will not be sitting in the fat as they cook.
I made turkey burgers for my family two nights using 99% lean ground turkey and simple seasonings (garlic powder, black pepper) and my family gobbled them up! Give it a try sometime!
Good luck with your dinner :)

Broil the burgers. Foil around your broiler grate..slit holes that math up with the grating. grease will drop down in the lower broiler pan.
