    Warning: Vegetarians beware.

    My father used to boil ground beef when I was a child and made boiled hamburgers out of them. I know, it sounds pretty nasty, but they were not too bad, actually. They were a little grayish in color, but they were really juicy and lacked most of the fat that comes with frying or cooking them.

    I know my father wasn’t doing it for the health benefits because he was extremely unhealthy. I mean his idea of a healthy breakfast was a Twinkie or cupcake with a glass of milk. Yum! Needless to say, I battled with being overweight throughout my entire childhood.

    Anyway, before I go off on a tangent, have you guys ever heard of boiling your beef to make it healthier? Because by boiling the ground beef, you remove a lot of the fat that would not be removed when frying or baking it.

    Some will say that one should avoid beef altogether, but I’m getting bored with eating chicken and fish all day for my main sources of protein. I want to add a little beef just to mix it up a little. Plus, I was watching an interview with Dorian Yates last night, and he said that eating lean beef was crucial for muscle development, especially when you are lifting heavy weights. Of course, Dorian Yates is a “beef head.” Yes, pun intended.

    Any thoughts?

    No idea as I cook a lot with chicken and fish however Im trying to get into more beef dishes as I heard red meat is great for bulking up.

    I was going to try and trim up, but man dieting sucks, fuck that shit. Im just going for getting big.

    This is mostly a shameless bump to see if it can get to someone else who knows what they are doing with beef recipes.

    You dont really remove any extra fat, if you fry or bake it in a single level pan it just sits in the fat while baking, and frying is cooking in fat. try grilling or baking it on a rack so the fat can drip off.

    Well I would say when out eating with a group from work and of the men if there is steak on the menue 10 out of 12 will have the steak. Recently there was 4 of us guys and 3 choose a steak. Someone told me or I have read somewhere that steak is the best for a guy and contributes to having a good wood when needed. Personally i like Roast Rib Steak; Grilled T/Bone and I foreget what you call the the large piece of the T/Bone; Grilled or quick fried Fillet of Steak. Beef Stew is wonderful (one could call this boiled beef) Beef Strogonoff (Strips of beef fried and added to a Cream and Brandy Sauce); Fried Beef Burgeres with onion and Tomatoe Sauce, fantastic. Steak and Kidney Pie also really nice. I love Beef - Aberdeen Angus I find the best as this beef is marbelled with fat which give the best flavour. I try and not have much beef as the experts say that it is not good for ones prostate at my age. Alot of the time I would take Red Beans which is said to be a good substitute as they are also high in proteen. Of course not foregetting Chinese Beef in Black Bean Sauce and Stir Fried Beef with Veg.
