    I've done it before, it actually works quite well.

    Now though I just get a bunch of 93% lean when it's on sale for ~$2.50/lb and drain it.

    If you want tender and delicious, get ground sirloin.

    I'd rather pay the extra $1.50 per pound.

    Pretty neat though for people who have the time to wash their beef.

    You have to remember when you buy cheap meat you are buying a different cut.

    I honestly just buy 93/7 ground turkey on sale. Beef is all chuck steak usually that I use to make chili and stews and stuff.

    Its the one really good benefit of the military. Commissary food is dirt fucking cheap, its like an hour drive but I usually stock up about 40lbs worth of ground beef every time I go down.

    The one at Fort Leonard Wood had all the Met RX Protein bars for 98cents :eek3:

    I honestly can't taste a difference between 85/15 and 93/7. I just buy 93/7 because it's healthier. :dunno:

    I buy 95/5 ground sirloin beef, 97/7 ground lean turkey, and 97/3 ground lean chicken.

    It costs a bit more, but I search for deals and it's one of the few foods I try to buy the best of.

    This procedure works but I'm wondering in the end how much in weight (grams of fat) you remove. In the end you have lean beef but less in weight...

    Wouldn't it cost the same just to buy 93/7 ground beef?
