For a healthier alternative try dry frying where only the melted fat from the meat is used, place the meat in an unheated pan (a non-stick pan is best), cook over a low heat until a little fat runs out, then increase the heat and cook as specified in your recipe.
Loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, including zinc, vitamin B6, and alpha lipoic acid. A 3 oz. serving of 95% lean ground beef has just 164 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, but offers up 24 grams of protein.
With your lean beef mince, try red Chianti or a modern Italian red.
About Castlemine Farm
Castlemine Farm has a long and rich heritage located in the heart of Roscommon. The Allen family have farmed the land since the 1820's when Castlemine Farm was in the hands of Walter (Wally) Allen. The farm was passed down through the generations and Sean Allen took over in the 1950’s and has been farming the land ever since.
He was always of the opinion that the grass fed to animals gives a sweeter taste especially in limestone regions such as Roscommon. The farm has now passed to the next generation and is now run by Sean’s sons Derek and Brendan Allen.
