  • What is 'fatty meat'?

    People speak of this mythical thing called "fatty meat." What exactly is it? Most meat at the store seems to have been surgically removed of fat with a scalpel. Is "fatty meat" just code for bacon?

    No. Think most cuts of lamb, especially chops and shoulder. For beef, I think of cuts like chuck. A lot of fatty meat is best stewed. If you do stew, try with meats on the bone to get the same benefits as with broth

      Well I buy my meat by the 1/4-1/2 cow and give special instruction to not trim the fat. Plus I request that they give me the extra fat, bones, and a reasonable portion of offal from that much of the cow.

        By the way this is still fatty meat U.S. Wellness Meats Our Animals Eat Right So You Can Too. If you go by caloric load this meat 75/25 lean meat is 77% fat and 23% protein....

          i think if you can see fat, you're dealing with fatty meat. admittedly, a loose standard.

            Looks like beef pot roast is listed as 66% fat calories and 33% protein. I like the bone in varieties to get all the goodies like marrow and bone stock with meat all in one and tastes great!

            As a comparison a non fatty cut like top sirloin is about the reverse of that with about 65% protein and 35% fat.

            You can see from these ratios that if your using fat as your primary fuel the fatty cuts give you optimal ratios.

              I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. 77% protein & 23% fat. If it was 77% fat, you'd have a slab of gelatinous critter. Wouldn't you?

                i think we're talking 'caloric load,' not composition by weight. that being said 100 grams of 75/25 ground meat would have 75 grams of protein (300 cals) and 25 grams of fat (225 cals), so it would be about 57% protein and 43% fat by caloric load.

                  Yes I'm speaking caloric load. Sooo...here is a link Calories in 1 oz of Ground Beef (75% Lean / 25% Fat) and Nutrition Facts You can see that per 1 oz of 75/25 beef you get 7g fat and 4.41g protein....which does come to 77%fat and 23%protein BY CALORIES. I know, seems odd considering the labeling and all. As you all know fat has more calories/gram than protein. I had to look this stuff up for myself after reading PHD. I recalled the Jamminets saying that by preferring the fatty cuts you automatically get the optimal ratio of protein to fat with 60%+ coming from fat calories. Something like that anyhow.

                    fuck, this took me a sec to see my mistake. water weight! 1 ounce of 75/25 ground beef won't be made up of purely fat and protein. same holds, of course, for my previous example of 100 grams...

                        I logged a pork butt roast yesterday and was amazed to see that it's 50% fat

                          Pork belly has tons of fat and pork picnic roast is fatty too.

                          Ribeye/prime rib is really fatty for beef.

                            Pork butt is one fatty cut I have been able to find. And it has the be the most delicious piece of meat on earth. Most pork I can find has so little fat it's dry and hard to eat. I did find some fatty pork chops, finally. Most beef is very lean. I guess it's because I live in Southern California. Everybody wants to be health conscious.

                              I have notice that the cheapest cuts of meat are the ones with the most fat on them. For example my local produce had like 5 different cuts of pork chops. The cheapest was 1.49 lb. those ones had a big edge of fat on them (like 1 inch). The next cut was 1.99lb with a chunk of fat as well (like 1/2 inch).

                              Then the pricier cut 3.29lb no fat at all, then the bonelless and so on. Check your hispanic markets more likely you will find them there.
