Red meat is high in colesterol. Some experts say eat extra lean, while others say avoid red meat; what about it's protien value?
Here are some beef facts that I dug up:
Beef helps fuel an active lifestyle by providing a powerhouse of protein. This is good news considering research by Donald Layman, Ph.D., professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois, that suggests many Americans may need more protein in their diets. Americans can feel good about loving beef because the protein in beef is a powerful nutrient that strengthens and sustains their bodies. Protein is essential to building muscle and helping enhance strength.(Family Features)
-There are 29 cuts of beef that meet government guidelines for lean, including favorites such as sirloin, T-bone and flank steaks. It's easy to "go lean with protein" and follow the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.
-Lean beef is a naturally rich source of nine essential nutrients, including high quality protein, iron, zinc and B vitamins, that people need for a healthy, active lifestyle. In fact, a 3-ounce serving of lean beef supplies more than one-half the amount of protein most people need each day.
Now for the best part.... There are some great beef recipes like Crispy Beef Lettuce Wraps With Wowee Sauce or Ginger-Maple Steak With Napa Cabbage & Grilled Onions
