Any specific beef I should try?
In this case, I trust Laura’s Lean.
According to USDA rules, beef can be considered and labeled “natural” as long as it contains no artificial ingredients and is minimally processed. This definition includes most grocery store-bought fresh beef. However, Laura’s Lean product is unlike most other “natural beef.” It’s a “Never Ever” offering, which means that it is sourced from suppliers who do not use added hormones or antibiotics to raise their cattle.
All of Laura’s Lean products have to meet the strict USDA standards to qualify as being lean. Every 4oz serving must contain less than 10g fat, 4.5g or less of saturated fats, and less than 95mg of cholesterol. Additionally, Laura’s Lean 96% Ground Beef meets the standards set by the American Heart Association’s heart-check program and is classified as Extra Lean by the USDA standards.
When you choose Laura’s Lean products, you get the best of both worlds of taste and nutrition for your family to enjoy.
Can I freeze meatloaf wellington?
This is one of the reasons why I love this recipe. To freeze meatloaf wellington, follow the steps and let it cool, then wrap the beef in clingfilm and freeze for up to three months.
