Red Meat

What is the Leanest Red Meat?

Do you know?

Believe it or not, it's Bison (aka buffalo). Deer and Elk are close runner ups. But the interesting fact is bison has fewer calories and grams of fat than chicken. Per 3 ounce serving, Bison has 122 calories and 2 grams of fat. Whereas, chicken has 144 calories and 3 grams of fat.

Beef and Veal are next on the list. The leanest cuts you want to choose is around the loin or round cuts. For example, beef bottom sirloin or top round veal.

With Pork, choose cuts from the legs, like ham or loin. Look for cuts like boneless sirloin pork chops and top loin chops.

And finally Lamb, you want well-trimmed meat from the shank half of the leg. Ask the butcher, he'll know what it means.
