What are healthy cuts of red meat?

Keri Gans
Nutrition & Dietetics
If you’re shopping for steak, choose lean cuts like round, shoulder, strip, tenderloin, or T-bone (and order those cuts when you dine out, too). If you’re in the market for a roast, choose arm or chuck shoulder cuts. When you buy hamburger, spend a bit more and opt for 95 percent lean ground beef. You can go even leaner than that, thoug -- and if you do, you can eat three servings of red meat a week. Extra-lean cuts include top and bottom round, top sirloin steak, and eye of round and bottom round roast. Per serving, all contain less than 5 grams of total fat, 2 grams of saturated fat, and 95 milligrams of cholesterol.
