Beef Wellington

Beef tenderloin can supply a lean serving of protein to your plate, but add port wine syrup and puff pastry and you've got a recipe for diet disaster. One recipe says that a serving hosts 744 calories and 57 grams of fat. The rich entree also has 130 milligrams of cholesterol, about half of your upper limit for the whole day.

Beef Wellington may be a feast favorite. Still, if you want to watch out for your heart health, go for lighter recipes, like this beef stew, which has half the cholesterol per serving.
