    I'm trying to find a minced beef that is under 5% fat. I know Asda frozen lean minced beef is 8% and Tesco frozen light choices minced beef is 7.4%

    Does anyone know of one that comes in at 5% or under?

    I've tried Quorn mince and despite liking their burgers and sausages this was gross!

    Hiya hun!

    Tescos, asda and morrisons do an extra lean mince which is 5% fat! It does cost a little more but its defo worth it! I use it to make burgers for the BBq and add S+p onioin and herbs! OH likes chilli flakes in his 2!

    hope that helps

    Oooh, great - thank you!

    Are they fresh rather than frozen then? I've looked in Asda and Tesco (frozen) and can't find one less than 5%.

    Asda works out at 3.5% per 100g and Tesco 4.3% per 100g (might not be exact, just remembering from what i wrote on the freezer bags! lol). Its the extra lean stuff. Asda do it2 for £5. As there is only 2 of us in our house, i divide each pack in 2 and freeze it. I too make burgers. DH has cheap pre-made ones and i save these ones for me! lol

    ETA - just looked on Asda online, They advertise it as being 3% when pan fried. Dont know if that includes oil or not. Am going to write to Asda because i think their foods should advertise what the nutrition is raw, not when cooked how they suggest,

    Yeah! I have just written them a stroppy message. It just doenst make sense. those mushrooms went from 0.3g fat per 100g to 16.2g when cooked how they said. But i had to find out the raw nutritional facts online. Which is wrong. I told them that i wouldn't expect to find the nutritional facts of a chocolate biscuit with a cup of tea! lol. I bet they have a laugh about it in the morning. lol I'll let you know their reply. lol xxx
