Tenderloin is so lean you won’t believe its pork

Pork is generally categorised as a fatty meat which people stay away from when watching their weight.

Surprisingly however, a fine cut of Pork Tenderloin can be as lean as a chicken breast.

Not only is it incredibly low in fat content, but it is also very high in protein and rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals. The level of saturated fat in a cut of meat such as this does not only depend on the type of cut, but also depends on the quality of the feed they are fed by the producers in their upbringing.

4. Rump

Rump will surely prove to be a heartwarming winter roast

Rump is one of the leanest cut of beef. Many meat lovers argue that Rump can be a terribly tough cut and can be very disappointing when grilled. Nonetheless, even though it does not have the glorious marbling and tenderness of other popular cuts, this tender lean meat can still produce amazingly tasty results if cooked properly.

A fine cut of Rump and similarly tough meats turn into fork-tender pieces exploding with flavour when roasted slowly. As such, the longer the time it takes for the meat to cook, the more proteins you allow to melt as they tenderize the meat, giving it an incredibly flavourful taste while keeping the meat moist.

5. Beef Knuckle
