Nutrition And Beef

Beef: An Important Part Of Your Diet!

Did you know that almost half of the fat contained in beef is the
same variety that scientists have determined actually lowers your
blood cholesterol levels?  It’s monounsaturated fat – the very same
kind found in olive oil.  Cholesterol is a necessary nutrient in a
well-balanced diet; among other critical functions, it helps us metabolize
Fat-soluble vitamins A and D.  Too much of it in the bloodstream, though,
contributes to cardio-vascular disease.  Monounsaturated fats ”clean” the bad
cholesterols from our blood.

So, what kind of sauce would you serve with lean beef? One that starts with the
humble carrot! You’ve probably read about the benefits of beta-carotene – a
nutrient that has been proven to neutralize toxins in the body.  All orange-colored
vegetables contain some beta-carotene, and carrots have one of the highest percentages
of them all (also high in fiber, but low in calories).

Try this sauce with a Kansas City Steak Company top sirloin, and see
how delicious “nutritious” can be!
