Just made a backstrap tonight that was really rare. So rare that all I think I did was warm up the outside a little bit. Didn?t realize how undercooked it was until I cut into it. Didn?t feel like taking the time to cook it some more so I just said screw it and ate the thing.
So do you guys ever eat meat that rare? Not overly concerned about it but just curious how rare is too rare for some of you guys.
I will eat it 100% raw served on my chilled Himalayan salt block with garlic,soy,balsamic vinegar,anchovies and hot peppers topped with a raw egg yolk on top. I lived to do it again. That is as rare as I have gone so far.
Whether it's venison steak or beef steak I cook them rare over the glowing coals of a real hardwood fire. The wood I use comes from right here on the property, and depending on what I'm in the mood for might be Apple, Ash, Aspen, Cherry, or Maple.
Most any wild game has very little fat content and the rarer it is the more tender it will be. Neighbor lady used to cook it all WELL done and my sister came home one night and said the venison was like eating a boot sole! I had moose last night medium rare and could cut with a fork.
When I was growing up meat was cooked til grey. I never really knew what a steak was supposed to taste like until I left home and joined the Navy. My mother was an excellent cook, however she was taught that meat has to be cooked well done.
