Calories in Beef

The number of calories in beef are generally high. This is due to both the high content of protein and fat. We all enjoy red meat now and again, so ensure you choose lean cuts to reduce the calories. Whilst we agree that fat adds flavor, when you are on a weight loss diet, the fat should be removed before cooking.

It's important you learn how to cook beef the right way to minimize the calories. For example: pan frying beef will add calories. It is better to grill or broil. If you must fry, fry on a griddle, so the juices and fat run away.

There are numerous beef cuts and beef grades which depend on the quality of meat. We will concentrate on high quality choice beef which is widely available.

The calorie count will vary depending on the type of beef as some cuts are fattier than others.  In the calories in roast beef chart below you can see the number of calories per typical serving size for the different types of cuts of beef which are suitable for roasting. 

Also see the calories in beef stew comparison chart. We've included a number of options for you.
