    Hi,

    I just had lamb chops for dinner I absolutely love them but find they are nicer if I cook them with the fat on , However, this evening the fat just gets so crispy i find i don't want to remove it (oh the dilemma) !!

    I always remove the fat before cooking where possible.

    Always before if I am doing green as you get more meat that way.If i cut it off afterwards, especially with bacon, i would be so tempted to eat it. xx

    Surely you have to remove the fat before you cook the meat otherwise it will be absorbed during the cooking and no longer be syn-free?

    I cut the fat off bacon or gammon before I cook it but with chops (my favourite) and steaks I leave the fat on whist cooking because i think they look nicer on my plate with the fat on and because I find it difficult to cut the fat off them when they are raw.
    I love the fat off chops, I have to really concentrate to throw it away IYKWIM

    Agreed! I always remove it before, otherwise what's the point of things like Fry-light? You might as well just use oil or lard!! Well, that's IMO! :D

    You can leave it on and then remove but SW say "trimmed of all visible fat before cooking" - however, when cooking a whole chicken you don't remove the skin before cooking do you? Well, I don't and believe me, it's a killer throwing that away!

    it's common sense to take it off before you cook, no one wants to eat raw fat do they?

    I think I am in the minority here but I hate fat on meat so have always taken it off before I cook it.

    ALWAYS remove any fat or skin BEFORE cooking meats or chicken but don't throw it away - the birds love it, so chop it all up with scissors and put it out on the bird table! Easy! - It definitely wouldn't have reached the bird table before I started Slimming World though - that's why there are a lot of "fat birds" around my way - lol!
