Sirloin tip side steak is the leanest cut you can get: Compare 3 ounces of sirloin tip side steak at 206 calories to the same amount of rib-eye steak at 466 calories. And while too much red meat can take a toll on your heart and your waistline, in moderation it can provide a ton of protein and vitamin B12, which is needed for red blood cell health. Try it in this Mexican-inspired brown rice bowl for a satisfying lunch or dinner.
