Im trying to figure out how much fat is actually in meat after cooking it…
For example, 4 oz of 92/8 lean ground beef has 9g fat… cooked on a foreman without intentionally trying to drain it…how much fat is left?
If Im cooking a 4 oz sirloin in 2tbsp olive oil, how much fat is absorbed from the olive oil and how much fat is burned off from cooking it?
Same with chicken, and other meats…[/quote]
The law of conservation of energy. If your burgers have x-grams of fat pre-cooked, then measure the fat that drains out of them aftewards. (You’d have to wait for the fat to congeal, though, as a lot of what drains from the burger is water.) That’s the only way to determine how much fat your burger “lost.” It sounds like a hassle to do, but if you really care, that’s what you have to do.
Also, you should only have to measure the “lost” fat once or twice - then just go off of that measurement.
