A barbeque with steak and chicken is a staple among cookouts all across the country. These tasty meats are usually a crowd favorite but the unfortunate truth is, they contain loads of calories. A 10 oz. rib eye has 725 calories and 57 grams of fat. Chicken covered in BBQ sauce, can get up to 327 calories. In this video, Chris Leahy from New York City’s BLT Prime demonstrates how to keep the calories down without losing the flavor. If you’re looking to eat steak, choose a cut like a sirloin to limit the fat. Next, follow Chef Leahy’s tips on how to make a porcini rub and a chimichurri marinade. Great taste, much fewer calories!
