You do want to make sure that you choose beef. Typically I get a 85/15 which is perfect and then I can just add in about ½ tablespoons of oil. But if you go with a leaner meat like chicken, turkey or 93/7 beef, please be sure to add in 1 tablespoon of oil. This way the meat has enough fat in it which aids in the flavor.
