I always get hungry when I see eskimos [inuits] eating raw meats with a knife
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 7:40:04 AM EDT

In Denmark I'd sometimes have "steak tartare" which is raw ground beef (sometimes served with a raw egg yolk). If it's high-quality meat, eating raw ground beef is actually really tasty, especially on good rye bread.


But - eating raw meat straight out of a frech carcass - never tried that.

good stuff.
esp when warm

My father-in law did it constantly. Would snack on raw ground beef while watching tv. He would also soak bread in bacon grease and heat it in the microwave. He ate venison and bacon raw too.

It doesn't get any fresher (safer).

I havnt eaten raw meat but I have had steaks that are grilled on the out side and the inside is not cooked. The problem with eating raw meat is that only the surface area gets any contamination on it. If you char, grill, etc.. the outside of a chunk of meat and the inside is still raw you wouldn't have much to worry about. This topic can go on and on and really get in depth.

I think I'd probably give that one a miss.

And he lived a happy 38 years.

I'll eat sushi and oysters on the half-shell, but I would never eat raw meat from a mammal or fish carcass. That's just unnecessary.

Try anything once.

I'd probably puke, but I would give it a shot.

My mom eats raw burger but the rawest I can go is medium rare.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 8:12:42 AM EDT
Raw meat yes, but not straight from the source
Wouldn't mind trying it though.

I eat raw hamburger with black pepper, and I always thank the deer/elk spirit by eating a bite of the heart when I kill one. I like my dog raw too.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 8:28:38 AM EDT
Isnt there lots of trikins (sp) worms/bacteria/whatever in raw meat?
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 8:29:54 AM EDT
I ate meat off the neck of a still warm moose once, it was good, but I haven't felt the urge to do it again.

You eat some weird stuff.

I've eaten sashimi(raw tuna), but per US FDA regs, for fish sold to consumed raw they are flash forzen for 1 second to kill parasites. Everything else I eat is cooked to at least medium rare. Life if short enough, without rushing it. Anything animal can contain pathogens that can kill you, this is espcially true of will game meat.

Something you all might want to consider is that the Inuit (Eskimo is derogatory term to them much like "Redskin" is derogatory to the Native Americans) often suffered from parasite and work infestation much like the wild animals who at the meat.

they didn;t know any better, but we do.

It's true that processed beef does not have the content of parasites that wild game does, but there is a reason why early man began cooking his meat. There is anice tapeworm called Taenia that like to hang out in domestic beef.

Here is a nice site for you that shows the cycle of this parasite in domestic beef like you find at your local grocery store. Domestic beef parasites and tapeworms



And if you don't mind walking around with worms and parasites, then Bon Appetite!

I was with my sister and her co-workers once, and they were talking about this restaurant in Chicago that serves "raw" food, cooked IIRC lower than 103.

No thanks. I'll eat my veggies and fruit raw. I don't even know how my dad can eat rare steak at a steak place.
Edit-I don't know if sushi counts. I have eaten that.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 8:42:49 AM EDT
Unlike certain types of fish, meat is not inherently parasite free. Thankfully my ancestors became civilized and determined that applying *fire* to *meat* makes food safe (and tasty!!!).

No raw ground beef. Too much Ecoli00157 in there.

Also worms and flukes in fish and pork.

Ugh. I had the displeasure of watching mature liver flukes surgically removed from the common bile duct. Once was enough.

Isn't raw meat the Inuit's source for Vitamin C?

Vitamin C can be found in a variety of traditional Inuit staples, including the skin of beluga whales (known as muktuk), which is said to contain as much vitamin C as oranges. Other reported sources include the organ meats of sea mammals as well as the stomach contents of caribou.

There are well-established reasons to cook meat and I see no reason to tempt fate.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 10:38:25 AM EDT
No. I prefer to just suck the blood from the necks of young village women.

My grandpa used to eat raw hamburger on crackers with garlic salt. It wasn't too bad once you got past what it was. Not a regular for me.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 10:47:03 AM EDT

Armenians make a dish made from seasoned ground raw beef and eat it raw, it's called "Keheyma" some people call it a canibal sandwich.

There's a fish supply shop that caters to the local sushi joints here in the Atlanta metro area that I was recently introduced to. They've got tanks on premises with live fish they truck in from Wilmington. Had some lovely Sea Bass that was swimming around a few minutes before it was sliced up and served. Those Inuit only get their stuff a little fresher than that.

He died at 78 by flipping his combine during harvest.

Ahh, lucky. I live in Colorado, so we ain't exactly getting the freshest sashimi-grade fish around here...

What's the name of the place? I've been thinking about making my own sushi at home, but I don't know a good place that sells super-fresh, sushi-quality meat.
