Generally speaking, red meat and particularly beef is not the best food choice for people with diabetes. It doesn’t mean that beef dishes should be completely ruled out, but due to the high content of saturated fat that can raise cholesterol level and increase the risk of developing heart disease, beef should be consumed in moderation.

Besides, to effectively reduce consumption of saturated fats, your best strategy would be to stick to the most lean cuts of beef such as tenderloin, top sirloin, top round, eye of round roast, and bottom round. These cuts contain 2 g of saturated fat and 5 g of fat per serving of 3.5 Oz. You can also enjoy a shoulder roast, a strip steak, and 95% lean ground beef. They contain about 4 g of saturated fat and less than 10 g of fat per 3.5 Oz serving. With less than 95 mg of cholesterol in these cuts of beef per serving, it will be easier for you to maintain your blood cholesterol level.

The lean cuts of beef are not only healthy, but very tasty as well. You can easily find plenty of delicious diabetes-friendly recipes with lean beef. Here are a few of our favorite ones.

Beef with Beans in Tomato Sauce
