    Very interesting article to say the least. Ralph's doesn't carry anything lower than the 10% and that is expensive, most of the time. The addition of rinsing will allow me to purchase the lower priced ground beef emoticon . Look out loose meat sandwiches.

Thank you for the link to the article.

    What's the movie where Kathy Bates says, "I'm older and richer and can afford more insurance?" That's how I feel about ground beef: I'm older and richer and can now afford leaner ground beef! But boy oh boy, I sure would have liked to have known this little trick "back in the day." And "back in the day" I ate a LOT of inexpensive meats!!

Thanks for the prudent and thoughtful post!
