They are guaranteed way to get you through your afternoon. Studies have shown that people who eat a higher-protein diet (about 30% of daily calories from protein) feel more satisfied. The higher protein helps curb cravings and prevent overeating. Research has also shown exercise is more effective for weight management when paired with a higher-protein diet. Beef provides the amino acids necessary for building and replenishing muscle.

A 3 oz. cooked serving of lean beef (about the size of a deck of cards) provides 10 essential nutrients and about half the Daily Value in protein for about 170 calories. This recipe uses the Strip Steak, a lean cut of beef, but did you know many of America’s favorite cuts of beef are classified as “lean”? In addition to the Strip Steak, the Top Sirloin, Tenderloin and 95% lean ground beef are also on the list. An easy way to find beef at the grocery store is to look for the word “Round” or “Loin” in the name. Over 60% of the whole muscle cuts found in the supermarket are considered lean when cooked with the visible fat trimmed.

Recipes like these Korean Beef Bowls, breakfast eggs cups and mozzarella stuffed meatballs are all easy and delicious ways to include more lean beef in your diet. So, if you’re in need of more protein and want to eat it in a delicious way, we’ve got you covered!
