I recently stumbled apon steak tartare in a small french restuarant next to the days inn on 8th ave in manhatten. For those who dont know,its basically a plate of minched RAW meat.
anyway,i found it an interesting dish. Alot of people are grossed out by the idea of eating raw meat.what are your opinions on it? Have you tried it?and if so,have you had any medical problems related to the raw meat?

There was this guy I read about that ate raw beef, all was fine until a few weeks down the line he began getting really bad stomach cramps, they got worse daily until one day he went to the loo and...... well lets just say he gave birth to the mother of all tapeworms!!! 8ft long, It was like an anaconda from his a**! It kept his weight down though which in this day and age can't be bad! Some of these stakes that I see cooked with blood dripping from them, euuurggh!! they look as though a good vet could get them going again! I dont eat meat but if I did I would want it incinerated so I know for sure its dead!

What's wrong with fresh raw meat (BEEF) ? or fresh raw fish ?
I can understand the ouchh in hot and technically uncivilized places, where meat is (or was rather recently) hanging above the pavement, a fieldday for insects.
In Greece a steak is at most 3/8" thick, stays half a day in water, cooks slowly for at least 20 minutes and can easily be used as a good replacement for a sole. Locals have no idea what meat tastes like and have the same "ouchh disgusting" and some do run for the bathroom.
Though they never tried.
Do yourself a favour, try a fresh tuna steak or a steak tartare and leave your preconceptions at the entrance...if you dare.

Whatever happened to "Thoroughly Cooking of Meats Reduces the Risk of Foodborne Illness" ... just kidding-it's not so much the FBI that bugs me, it's just not my cup of tea and it grosses me out, some may like it and that's great! I do eat raw seafood. Something about meat that's red on the OUTSIDE is just not psychologically appealing, and probably because of that would never taste good to me.

In Germany, all meat has to be very thoroughly checked for all kinds of things that don't belong in it, so it's pretty safe to eat raw meat. I'm the only one of my family of four who doesn't eat raw minced meat, simply because I don't like it, and neither my parents nor my brother have ever had problems caused by eating it. All of us eat air-dried ham, smoked ham and other uncooked meat.

Agreed...raw egg, salt , pepper and onions spread on a fresh baked bun...lightly buttered.
From what I understand the meat used in tartar is processed specially for the purpose of eating it raw and is an excellent cut. Also, when somebody purrchases the tartar make sure your butcher makes it fresh for you or has been made within 1 hours time. The meat should be eaten soon thereafter.

I am a big fan of tartare steack. And one of my pleasure is to order it when I am with my american colleagues...
But after a first reaction of surprise, some try it, and the next day, they are very happy to order one !

Better to tell what it is first...
Legend tells that it comes from the Huns and other Tartars coming down from the steppes of Asia. They ate raw (horse) meat and to soften it, placed it for a few hours under their saddle.
Truth is, the word was created by Jules Vernes in his fiction "Michel Strogoff", the recipe existed already.
- (absolutely) fresh beef steak (preferably the filet), minced
- finely cut onions
- cappers (marinated in vinegar)
- peper and salt
- finely cut fresh herbs (chive is perfect)
- a pinch of Worcester sauce
- a self-made mayonnaise made of one or two yolks, a little vinegar, French
mustard, salt and pepper
Mix and enjoy, preferably with a green salad and French fries (a theft, fries are actually Belgian).

If your mother is interested, get her on line, I will give the precise recipe (I did hide a couple of ingredients...). I also forgot a little oil for the mayo.
It is especially popular in France, Belgium and I think England and is the main speciality of many a restaurant.
For the salad I can offer a sauce (own creation) made with fresh cream, extract of meat, vegetable salt,.... even the Greeks (not culinary adventurers)are finishing the plate with spoons and drying it with bread.

Heh...no, she finds the concept revolting (shes a "well-done" meat person), but I definitely would love to try it if I could find it in a restaurant somewheres (I am a "rare" meat person, so raw wouldn't bother me terribly)...
