Lean Beef - Which cuts are the best?

Lean Beef Cuts - Which are best for me?

We can’t share enough how good beef is for you!

Containing so many essential vitamins and minerals, it is a nutritional powerhouse.

But we understand that sometimes you have to limit what foods you consume, due to dietary restrictions caused by health concerns. Or perhaps you feel the need to cut back on saturated fats.

The good news is that unless a doctor says otherwise, you do not have to cut beef completely out of your diet. You just need to readjust what parts of the cow you are preparing. And instead of purchasing a perfectly marbled ribeye, you might consider a leaner sirloin instead. 

Let’s take a look at what parts of the cow are used for certain cuts of beef.

Lean Beef

According to “Beef, It's What’s for Dinner”, your leanest cuts are going to be…

  • Tri Tip Roast
  • Strip Steak
  • Flank Steak
  • Tenderloin Roast
  • Top Round Steak
  • Sirloin Tip Side Roast
  • Chuck Tender Roast
  • Top Sirloin Filet
  • Brisket Flat Half
  • Eye of Round Roast
  • Strip Roast
  • Strip Petite Roast
  • Eye of Round Steak
  • Sirloin Tip Center Steak
  • Strip Filet
  • Shoulder Clod Arm Roast
  • Tri-Tip Steak
  • Shoulder Petite Tender
  • Coulotte Steak

Some of these cuts might be familiar to you. And chances are, you have prepared them before.

But what is a “Shoulder Clod Arm Roast”,” Coulotte Steak” or “Strip Petite Roast”?

Below we have included some links to recipes for some of the traditional lean cuts of beef. As well as a few of the non- traditional.
