This may be a silly question, but....
When I buy ground beef (say, lean) from the grocery store, it's got a certain fat content (however much it is). Now if I prepare that ground beef as a hamburger, I'm basically eating whatever fat is contained in that meat.
However, when I use that ground beef for tacos, I heat the meat until it browns, and then drain off what seems like quite a lot of yellow oily fat liquid. Quite a bit of it. Does that mean that when I eat those tacos, the fat content of the meat is now quite a bit less than if I'd made hamburgers from that meat instead?
If so, does that mean tacos are intrinsically healthier than hamburgers, even if made from the same stuff?
