How to make the fat percentage look lower, while still putting accurate numbers on the label.
Because to me if the serving size is 30g and the fat content is 4g.... Well that's more than 5% fat by volume by my calculations?

BUT if you look at the small text above that you see "% of daily value" (as in TOTAL recommended daily intake... TOTAL).
Sneaky sneak is sneaky.

Ok I made this for the first time today and damn if it isn't super tasty. Slow cooked beef short ribs cooked in beef broth, Bourbon, Maple syrup, Shallots, carrots fresh garlic, tomato paste, and thyme. On the side was rosemary polenta with sliced baby Bella mushrooms roasted with olive oil balsamic vinegar and seasoned with Truffle parmesan and black garlic

I am stuffed, this was so tasty, the meat just fell apart. They recipe called for 3-4 hours in a Dutch oven but I opted for my slow cooker set at 6 hours

So on day two I changed things up a bit. I took the broth that the ribs cooked in and strained it into a skillet, added a few shots of bourbon and whisked in some flour over medium head to make a nice brown Roux which I poured over the ribs. In the polenta I added more grated parmesan and the mushrooms were the same as before. This put the dish over the top
