I know people cook beef to be pink in the middle, but I've just gone to look at the joint after dinner and it's sitting in a puddle of blood. Surely that's not good for them is it? He says it's fine because they had bits from the outside that are more cooked. hmm

yummy - that's how we eat ours.

If there is no blood whne you leave it to stand it means it is cooked right through and so dry your dcs would gag.

Pass it over. Yummy.

Just how I like it, tbh.

zephyrcat Sun 10-Aug-08 17:17:03

Really? Do you give it to the children like that as well? Makes feel sick just thinking about them eating it!

TrinityRhino Sun 10-Aug-08 17:18:04

gagarin, hardly

I would probably give them a bit more from the outside, but wouldn't worry too much. Rare is lovely!

According to my parents, my favourite meal when I was two was steak tartare, and it doesn't seem to have done me any harm!

twoGsinBuggerOff Sun 10-Aug-08 17:20:09

oh its way overcooked if theres no blood imo.

Blandmum Sun 10-Aug-08 17:20:45

There is nothing harmful in it at all!

Right way to have it IMHO

twinsetandpearls Sun 10-Aug-08 17:22:05

That it how we have it. I give dd an end bit that is not as rare.

Jux Sun 10-Aug-08 17:22:06

Yum yum yum. DD loves it very rare, I love it blue, dh will only have it well done.

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sun 10-Aug-08 17:27:43

I eat mine so blue, that my friend reckons that it is nothing a good vet couldn't get back up on its feet. grin

Om nom nom Bree!! grin When we go out for a meal, if I order steak I ask for it "Still mooing."


Mmm...delicious flesh...

gagarin Sun 10-Aug-08 17:29:47

Rhino - I meant that when my lot were young they couldn't chew dry meat and couldn't swallow it either! So it used to sit in their mouths until they heaved it out...pleasant memeories.

Bluestocking Sun 10-Aug-08 17:34:37

Me too ... just wipe the muck off and slap it onto the plate please.

objectivity Sun 10-Aug-08 17:36:54

It is fine. Steak hache anyone?

shinyshoes Sun 10-Aug-08 17:38:51

me and mine love it like this, pass it over here we'll it eat. My children have eaten it like that since they were little.


MrsGuyOfGisbourne Sun 10-Aug-08 17:53:30

i love it like this too, and feed it to the kids.
However I did have a steak tartare in France on hols this year (with a raw egg on top) and was ill for a day...

i hate raw food like that and refuse to eat it or give it to my kids like that.

tastes like blood.


TrinityRhino Sun 10-Aug-08 17:57:13

I'm with you expat

bythepowerofgreyskull Sun 10-Aug-08 17:59:22

sounds delicious, the blood makes the most delicious gravy. smile

If you take it out and its red when you cut it,try leaving it to stand for 10 minutes,as it still "cooks",and the muscle relaxes making it easier to carve.If its too red I sometimes "Zap" it in the microwave for 2 mins,doesn't affect the rareness too much,but turns the blood brown.

bellavita Sun 10-Aug-08 18:49:38

That is how we eat ours.

bubblagirl Sun 10-Aug-08 18:54:59
