I am so excited to launch my new website. I am very passionate about food, nutrition, and fitness and I look forward to sharing my insights and recipes with you on this blog.
As for my first post, I am sharing with you a delicious recipe for Beef Kababs!
As much as beef may get a bad reputation, it can actually be a great source of protein as a part of a balanced diet. The type of ground beef you use can make a big impact on your fat intake.
Here's a quick breakdown of fat content per 100g of ground beef:
Extra lean ground beef: 7.5g
Lean ground beef: 14g
Medium ground beef: 16g
Regular ground beef: 25g
That means if you switch from regular ground beef to extra lean, you would be eating 17.5g less fat! That's equivalent to 158 calories!
I must admit, there is a difference in taste since the fat helps the ground beef taste juicier. I suggest making the change gradually to get used to the leaner ground beef taste. I have created this kabab recipe with extra lean ground beef and find them to be juicy. Chopping the onion in the food processor releases juices and helps make the kababs oh so juicy and delicious!
These beef kababs are:
High in protein
A source of iron
Low in fat
Makes: 16 kababs
1/2 cup parsley or cilantro
1 Tbsp ginger and garlic paste
