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.
To boil prepare lean ground beef for dishes, add a bit of water to ground beef in pan... when cooked, pour into colander... rinse with water... put back into pan... brown ground beef... Fat Reduced Lean Ground Beef!
