How to remove fat from ground beef:

Cook or brown ground meat in a pan. Drain any visible fat using a colander. Next simply place your browned ground meat into a colander and run hot water through it for about 2 minutes. Allow the hot water to continue running for another minute to help any fat continue down the drain. Return your meat to the skillet after you wipe it out. This is a great way to remove fat, reduce calories and help with heart health.

I hope this tip helps you! I also cook with ground chicken or ground turkey to save myself from any fat from beef when I am really watching my cholesterol.
