tablespoon honey mustard
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4

Expert Tips

Current nutrition guidelines form the National Center for Nutritional and Dietetics recommend 3 ounces as a serving size for cooked boneless lean meat. An easy way to estimate serving size is to visualize a deck of playing cards. A 3-ounce serving of cooked boneless lean meat is the same size: 3 1/2x2 1/2x5/8 inches.
