Know the Different Cuts of Steaks and How Much Protein They Offer


Red meat consumed in moderation has its health benefits. Quality steaks are packed with protein that is vital for muscle growth and recovery, as well as high amounts of vitamin B-12 and iron which keeps red blood cells healthy and boosts the immune system. Knowing the different cuts of steaks can help when ordering at a restaurant.

Before anything else, it’s important to note that the American Heart Association has recommended limiting the consumption of lean meat, poultry, and seafood consumption to six ounces per day. A lean cut of beef is defined as a 3.5-ounce serving that contains less than 10 grams total fat, 4.5 grams saturated fat, and 95 milligrams cholesterol. An extra-lean cut as a 3.5-ounce serving contains less than 5 grams total fat, 2 grams saturated fat, and 95 milligrams of cholesterol. The extra lean cuts are eye of round roast, sirloin tip side, top round roast, bottom round roast, and top sirloin steak.
