Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Would alligator qualify as a big lizard?

I've eaten it.

Cooked and very, very good.

Hmmm, frogs and turtles too though none eaten raw.

These are critters best cooked.

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

74novaman,

Are you from someplace in Africa?

The only mention of 'biltong' I've seen were all located there.

How long do you let it dry and do you use cheese cloth to keep the flys off or ...?

Thanks!

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

G26ster,

Yep, native Indians eat things we perhaps wouldn't, like sea gull eggs.

Or, a whole lot of things pampered Americans find distasteful, but only in their imaginations, because they've not tried them, therefore they must be crap...

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Yes, horse meat, I don't think I've ever eaten, but would love to.

Yes, I said "don't think I've ever eaten' as perhaps it's been substituted for beef without my being aware.

It's my understanding it's superb as one of the best herbivore meats.

Yes, I know, but horse meat has been around for aeons.

What the poor old dairy cow once dry? Does she's get to retire in green pastures?

Nope, she becomes select beef, which a lot of chefs are now claiming best. Why I don't know, but they claim it really, really good meat.

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

rotor,

Honestly, I doubt it. I love tongue, and other parts most Americans would turn their noses up...at.

Beyond liver, kidneys, sweetbreads, I'm in. Though, I'm not turned off by tripe, I don't care for it's texture.

Some folks, aren't aware of intestines as casings for sausage and if they knew, they'd probably run away, never to eat sausage again.

WildBill,

Thank you , thank you, I'll be going there soon.

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Philip964,

Yes, it counts, but I'm sorry you didn't care for it.

My guess is you had a built in reluctance factor.

Understandable, you're an American with the American attitude of 'holy mak-el Andy, we gonna eat that, it'll make us sick' when it won't.

Getting Americans to even try or consider something that isn't bland, though 'mountain oysters' even though rather bland is a huge stretch for some.

BTW, even turkey fries I find delicious, or beef or ....they're all good, I do prefer them 'fried'.

Brains, not being a zombie, I find gelatinous and not something I'm overly fond of, but will eat them in Menudo.

Years back, on the first leg of a business trip landing in Monterrey, Mexico in ye old company jet, a group of us were treated to lunch of cabrito.

Our host, insisted our metallurgist eat the eye out of the whole roasted critter served as our lunch. He, our guy, apparently thought himself the butt of a bad gustatory joke. He refused this kind offer whereupon our host dug one out of the skull, popped into his mouth and exclaimed ecstasy.

I didn't volunteer to eat it as I didn't want to make our guy look weak...

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Beiruty,

That looks delicious. I'd jump on it. I see the raw onion too, which goes very well with raw, red meat.

Americans are squeamish even when contamination is not a consideration when it comes to the category of food they're not familiar with...not knowing bacon and eggs would make some in the world nauseated.

OK, anyone ever eat raw fish you've caught?

Make your own sushi?

No?

Ok, ever taken the roe out of fresh caught specks and deep fat fried them with Fish Fry corn meal?

Tremendously tasty, kinda like fish flavored cheetos in texture.

I digress.

If reluctant to try (if assuredly uncontaminated) raw beef, is there anything you eat raw besides apples, carrots, etc.

The more I post on this the more I get thinking perhaps, I could pot a few small game critters like rabbit or squirrel and get my raw meat hankerin satisfied.

Or, am I the only raw meat aficionado, beside Beiruty and his fellow raw meat eaters?

P.S. I think the bug that bit me regarding the eating of raw meat is even earlier than 'cannibal/hannibal' sandwiches when I ate raw, free ranging scallops I harvested diving for them sans wet suit, mask, fins, and snorkel when I lived for a very short time in Cape Cod as a small kid (11 years old). The water was a brisk 70 degrees Fahrenheit, but I still collected half a bushel by hand. No mask, blurry vision in cold, salt water, but well enough to see the scallops. Yes, I remember it as I've never been as cold since...even when diving off the coast of Venezuela (before the commies took power) with full wet suit, gloves, and head gear.

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Wish I'd thunk of it when I used to hunt and kill deer. Mmmmmhhh, raw back strap. Talk about fresh, uncontaminated and when I dressed them I did with so rubber gloves on, no contamination.

No, deer is not beef, but it's a herbivore with a great flavor.

Closest thing I get to gamey nowadays is lamb.

I love gamey flavored meat, but it's not for everyone.

Most of us Mericans want stoh-bought, pre-packed...everything...

Come to think of it, I could buy a small heifer, kill, butcher it myself, then I could go all Hannibal Lecter...

Whoops, ok, ok, didn't mean to upset ya'lls digestive sensitivity. (cough, cough, wimps...)

Re: Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Was pre-ground raw hamburger safer in the mid fifties or was she just lucky it didn't make her sick?

Or me for that matter, as I ate a number of these sandwiches once I ate a bite and we never go sick.

I wouldn't dream of it today, but I'll be discussing this with a butcher in the near future. Maybe he'll know what's now safe or not...

Ever Eaten Raw Beef?

Roughly 60 years ago, for the very brief time I lived with my Mother, she would make raw hamburger sandwiches with only a slice of raw onion, salt and pepper.

I was repulsed.

One day, I inexplicably asked for a bite. I don't what motivated me except maybe her enthusiasm for this kind of sandwich.

I was instantly hooked. It was great!

I wish I could be assured raw hamburger or even some other type beef (steak?) could be eaten tartare like.

Anyone know of a trusted source for eating beef raw? (it's outstanding, but then I like lots of raw seafood, so beef isn't much of a stretch...

Thanks!
