Rinse The Fat

This Sparked Me!

When you brown ground beef... don't just strain it. Rinse it. You keep the flavor and save fat & calories. This tip is especially useful when yuo compare super lean ground beef to regular ground beef. A 4-ounce raw portion of regular hamburger that has been cooked, drained and rinsed has approximately 155 calories, 9g fat, 4g saturated fat and 46 mg cholesterol according to my research.

    Fantastic, where did you find the figures? I mostly use some water while cooking meat as it does help to get the fat and blood out. Then I drain it and squeeze out more.
