It is generally not safe to eat raw meat because of the possibility of bacteria contamination which can cause sickness. I think the labels are for the uncooked meat.

thanks i was thinking the same. Well how much protien gets denatured when struck by heat?

You probably are safe to eat raw steak if it's very fresh and from good supplier.
If it wasn't you wouldn't be allowed to order a rare steak in a restaurant as the centre is only warmed rather than cooked.
Most peple I know who have tried raw steak said they preferred the taste when slightly cooked instead.
You should never ever think of eating poultry raw by the way -s'pose you already know though.

McBain, I've heard from quite a few people that the human digestive system can't properly digest uncooke eggs. If this is true then, not only are you increasing your chances of getting very sick, but you are decreasing the amount of protein that gets absorbed.

In France, one of their best dishes is called "steak tartare". It's actually high quality raw minced beef mixed with a whole raw egg and a few spices such as mustard and peppers.

Tastes awesome!

yeh, raw eggs are safe to eat, as long as the shell isn't cracked and you thoroughly wash the shell before you crack it open. As far as digestion goes, I'm don't know for sure, but I'd have to agree with Logo. Whenever I ate raw eggs in the past, they just didn't seem to sit right in my stomach. I'd usually feel a little sick for the next few hours.

it is not safe to eat raw meat of any sort. THe only exception is real cuts of steak such as NY strip and fillet mignon. THey are seared on the outer portion which is where all the bacteria are. As long as the cut of meat has not been pierced, the inner portion should be free of bacteria. I still eat all my meat cooked thrououghly, but i eat pink steak (but not raw)

also, all the protein is denatured in cooking. That is what cooking is!

As long as your meat is from a good source, and is clean, I wouldnt worry about it.

One question and one statement.

Statement.
What the hell are you doing eating raw meat anyways?

Question.
Zombies eat raw flesh all the time, and they seem to do just fine for themselves, dont you think? Look how many of them there are!

TOP TIP:
chopped steak rolled in salt makes great chewing gum

mY question is for the poor dude with no oven... did you ever catch the mofo that stole it "gettinjacT"?!? In Australia we don't use ovens though, we chuck our steaks on the barbie, tastes better anyway... ;)

Yes, true, the health state of zombies is not what I'd call prime, but its all they eat! Imagine if zombies started eating...oatmeal as well.
They'd be unstoppable.


Why dont you get a tabletop grill like the kind the gentle George Foreman advertises? 20 bucks and you can grill for friggin life. You can grill anything on it, too. I put a steak, some sweet Po's, and some asparagus on the grill all at the same time once.


BTW


Who in the *** stole your OVEN???
I dont know if I should be angry at the thieves for stealing it or angry at YOU for allowing an OVEN to be stolen.
