    Does cooking ground beef reduce calories?

    the package says ground beef is 160 calories for every 4 oz, is that the uncooked figures or the cooked figures? Because i usually rinse my beef under water to get rid of all the fat which would lower the calories i would think. Anyways...anyone know the aproximate calories for 93% lean ground beef cooked?

    Dont know the answer to your question but washing it under water will not reduce the calories. Once you start cooking it however, a good amount of fat will "drip" off essentially lowering cals.

    dude tehre no f**kin way anyone is goin to be able to accuratley answer that,

    just be safe n keep the totals constant to the package, that way youll be doin better then you think you are.

    also paper towels soak up fat from mince, if you spot any, or chill it overnight n take off that white ****e from the sides n top...if youve got the time you know

    besides that if in doubt go with fish man, i know it doesnt sound as good as mince n stuff but its 110% good for you n thats what really counts right?

    I think cooking ground beef will cut out some fats...so in part some cals will be reduced as well.

    Yep. Some of the fat will be left in the pan or drained off.

    Gosh! after you brown your ground beef, run hot water over it in a strainer, this will reduce the fat/calories signifigantly.

    Sort of. I mean, it will rinse off any grease that had cooked out of the beef but not already drained off, but it's not likely to be a significant reduction in fat unless you're cooking very fatty ground chuck and NOT draining it at all. If he's starting with 93%, there ain't much there to begin with.

    But you're right, in theory. Some will wash off.

    Okay

    Enough of this. Debate a question, dont argue!

    Rinsing cooked ground beef reduces the fat content some. The leaner the beef, the less this helps.

    Foods are measured in their raw state. We do it all the time at the nutrition lab.

    Two points for you - you supported my point AND made the thread nicer.

    Well done, my good man.
