I Spoke Too Soon....

I pressed the "Publish Post" button on my latest entry right before I went down to dinner. It was definitely a moment too soon because in fact, I got served red meat tonight.  Really really red meat.

And I know that this was from a cow because I am pretty sure I heard it mooo on my plate.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I ate raw beef for dinner tonight.

Yes, RAW beef.

I think it might be called steak tattae.  I don't really know, I just know it was cold, raw and bloody.


I didn't think so. I did try it because I feel too rude to ever refuse, but I didn't take any more than my little piece and instead I filled myself up on bread.  I probably won't be trying it again, because even though it might have been tasty, I couldn't tell because my brain was kicking my taste buds in the head every time I ate another bite.  I guess what I am saying is that I could not get over the fact that is was raw...even if they assure me it is safe...I just can't afford stomach problems right now!?! I have a castle to see tomorrow!

So...what's your thoughts...have you ever ate raw beef?  Should I have been more open?  Is it safe?  Is it really as delicous as my host family says?

Oh and I definitely will not be complaining about eating so much fish ever again!

  1. I am pretty sure you won't die.. The CAB chef at their annual convention served an appetizer in which the beef was raw. It tastes a lot better when it is sliced really, really thin though. I think it is actually pretty good, but it has to be a great piece of meat to begin with. Glad you are trying so many new things!
