Eye of round. If there is a strip of fat along the outside edge just cut it off. This has roughly 5 grams of fat for 4 oz of raw meat.

Yup, also, just look at it. If it is very marbled (with fat), it is not lean, if it does not show much marbling, then it is lean. Always cut off any fat you can.

MWB is right. Eye of round is pretty lean once the out fat is cut away. If you purchas the whole eye round roast you can cut it into steaks like 2" thick and then trim the fat around the outer edge.
Skirt or flank steak is pretty lean also I believe.;)

oh yea. Depends are we talking only beef?
Venison, elk, and buffalo have lean cuts as well. I don't hunt but sometimes I get this from my relatives who do hunt up north.
If you live in Canada I've heard you can get seal meat and it's supposed to be great. We can't get it in the US.

Your best bets are going to be anything with "round" or "loin" in the name, like

top round
eye of round
sirloin
etc...

My favorite is venison...but I can get it in my own backyard :D

If you can get beef from a local farmer, it will tend to be leaner and more natural (less antibiotics, growth hormones, etc) if you ask around and find someone who raises their cattle more naturally. If you have a big freezer, you can buy a whole bunch of beef in bulk for cheap.

Well if price is no object, look through this chart. it comes from "gunners den" (look it up online). figures are for "untrimmed" content and 100grams of meat.

Antelope: .9% fat 22.5g protien
Deer (mule) 1.3% fat 23.7g protien
Elk .9%fat 22.8g protien
moose .5%fat 22.1g protien
USDA choice beef 6.5%fat and 22g protien
USDA standard beef 2% fat and 22.7g protien

also, wild game contains a much higher % of polyunsaturated fat. I suspect that if there were any wild cows out there, they would be very low fat also.

if you want good cheap protein in lean red meat, I think flank steak isn't a bad choice

a little chewy though
