Ground Round

Hello folks,

just wanted your opinion on ground round. I used to buy the extra lean ground beef - around 97%, but I just can’t make myself pay the price.

Right now I just buy the ground round weighted beef and grill it on the foreman grill. Am I correct to think that I’m draining a lot of the fat off? The little “tub” gets filled up after I’m done making my burgers.

Before you tell me to suck it up and buy the extra lean stuff, I should say I have a relatively fast metabolism and used to be the typical tall skinny guy. I think I can get away with it, just wanted to ask if anyone else does this.
