Creating leaner alternatives
How can you make this homey dish safer to eat for the diet conscientious? The Mixed Stew crew suggests making creamed beef with ground turkey, which has enough taste to make it yummy. Another idea is lowering and restricting the fat content by selecting leaner ground beef or slicing thin pieces of lean beef, such as flank steak or skirt steak. If you choose to make a leaner chipped beef, we also suggest using beef broth instead of regular water to compensate for the lack of natural juiciness in lean beef cuts.
