When cooking with beef choose lean cuts of meat, trim off any visible fat and try to opt for cooking methods that don’t require extra fat to be added, such as grilling, griddling or dry roasting.

This will help to keep fat intakes really low, while ensuring you benefit from all the nutrients in red meat.
