Yesterday I saw a local news story about pink slime and in the story they described the link slime being in mostly meats that are “lean”. Tonight while prepping my dirty rice for dinner I pulled out my organic ground beef with the whole pink slime story in the back of my mind. Finding out that my ground beef in fact is lean I decided to cook it and see how much fat came out. The local story said that the link slime has no fat and I was happy to see our ground beef came up with fat that I drained out before adding the rice.
The thing about buying organic meats is there are no additives like ammonia but does that mean my organic ground beef is free from the other things?Â I did some research and in fact sources are citing organic local meats as an easy way to know what is going in your meat. Is my organic ground beef really superior or am I being mislead?
