Beef Ratings: Which Grade Is the Leanest

Beef has a BAD reputation. And while red meat might not be the healthiest food on the planet, there are ways to enjoy beef that might not be SO detrimental to your health. If you select a cut of beef labeled lean the meat must have under 10 grams of fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 3 1/2 ounce serving.

Cuts of beef are graded by the amount of marbling (streaks of fat) it contains. But do you know what grade is the leanest?

I really don't know my cuts of meat. I should though since I don't eat much of it, but there are occaisions when I'm around red meat. It's good to understand this on days when poultry or seafood is not the "choice" of meat for the day!

I chose Select but it told me I was incorrect, but it also says that Select is the leanest. :(
