Hey Ghetto, lean ground beef would be a better choice.

isnt it pretty much lean if its 90% lean 10% fat? i know, i'd rather have purchased some tip sirloin steaks, or some eye of the round steaks, but the ground beef was on sale. and on the package it said "ground beef from sirloin- 90% lean/10% fat"

from nal.usda.gov:

4 oz (raw wt) 80% lean beef: 20g prot, 13 g fat

4 oz (raw wt) 90% lean beef: 22g prot, 9 g fat

4 oz (raw wt) 95% lean beef: 22g prot, 5 g fat

In my mind, unless you are on a (non-keto) cut, I would just buy the 80%. The above data was for "pan broiled" and I think the foreman takes out even more fat. Where I buy my beef, the 90% costs more than twice as much as the 80, and I don't really see the point when it is over that little an amount of fat.

When using the george foreman grill i wouldn't spend the money for expensive burger, alot of the fats gonna drip out. I just bought a hamilton beach grill, I went through 3 george foreman grills and I am not happy with them. They work good, but have left me with left me stranded to many times.

Ah yes.... ground beef... a staple in every offseason diet. When the wallet's not as heavy as usual ground beef, tuna, and peanut butter are good foods to get in the protien and save some money.
