TIPS FOR USING BEEF

Here are some techniques for cooking beef that help keep calories and fat content low.

  • Trim all outside fat and any inside seam fat prior to cooking.

  • Use a nonstick skillet to reduce or eliminate the need to add fat during cooking.

  • Season beef with reduced-fat marinades.

  • Bake, broil or roast beef on a rack so the fat will drip off.

  • Chill stews and soups after cooking so you can skim solid fat from the surface.

  • Use the leanest cuts of beef you can find.

  • Weigh your portion to limit yourself to 3-5 ounces.
