Steak dinner
Previous Next 2 of 8 Meat in moderation

Red meats, such as beef, pork and lamb, tend to have more saturated fat than other protein sources. However, lean meats in moderate amounts can still be a part of your diet after an acute coronary syndrome.

Lean cuts of beef include the sirloin tip, round steak, rump roast and extra-lean hamburger. Lean cuts of pork include center cut ham, loin chops and pork tenderloin. When buying beef, look for choice and select grades, rather than prime, and always trim off fat before cooking.

Try replacing beef with turkey when possible. Instead of bacon and sausage, try lean ham or Canadian bacon.
