I've been watching Masterchef on the telly and a thought occurs - Michel Roux Jnr is a goddamned vampire. Here he is.

Michel is the guy with the beard. He is pictured next to his servant, Igor. As this is a family friendly forum I've cropped out the blood stained corpses at their feet.

Ok, so why is this guy a vampire (other than the fact he looks a bit like one)? He likes his meat "rare". And when I say "rare" I mean "a decent vet would have that bugger on its feet again".  See this? This is practically burnt compared to what gets served up on that show.

I know, technically, vampires drink blood and are not particularly known for their meat-eating habits. But this meat is still bleeding. You can almost hear it screaming for mercy as he sinks his fork into it with a pile of asparagus.

I don't eat meat anymore, unless it is organic "happy meat", but when I do/did I prefer to eat something which is definitely dead. A heart beating on the plate does not an appetizing looking dish make. At least that's my opinion. What about ya'all? Do you like your meat actually, you know, cooked and fit for human consumption? Or do you prefer it as lions intend it?

This is my kind of thing

Yum!

A food thread!

I like my steak rather rare, but not that much as on the first picture.
The best option is well done on the crust and pink and juicy on the inside.

Hunter911, it is PERFECT steak! Fried exactly 3 minutes on every side. Yummy! Can I have one with baked potatoes?
How about apetizer and drink before? For better digestion?

How do you think? I am from Poland, it is vodka!  :Smile_blinky:
One shot before meal, and one in the middle... Everything tastes so good.  :Smile_smile:
Just not too much, two shots makes me hungry, more makes me suicidal tanker.


Seriously, I need to go to kitchen to fry some meat. Now. Damn you Cuddly_Spider!

What a stressful morning. Woke up late and spilled some sugar. At least I can come here for some relaxation. I'll check this thread I left in the oven last night....

That's not "rare", that looks like an ad hoc biology lesson being conducted in a kitchen. How safe is rare meat compared to thoroughly cooked meat anyway? When I was young (which was a long, long time ago) I had sausages on sticks, which my fading memory says were raw rather than rare.

The meat on here looks nice...

...something that, when cut, doesn't resemble an animals innards. Maybe it is has something to do with my English heritage...

I like my hamburger well done, I like my sausages well done and the rest of the meat.

But I like my beef steak rare and juicy. But tastes differ, to each its own.

About the safety of the meat I can't talk much, afaik pork has more issues with rare meat than beef.

@KptStrzyga that's a good routine :D

Thanks Hilton but i know what to do,i was just having fun on the forum,I have been BodyBuilding for some 25 years and i know the drill.
Just now, i am in the pre contest period,just another 2 months of dieting,training,aerobic training and then i am done.
Fifty is a good age to stop with this fanatic approach to the sport i love to do,I will go on training but on a less fanatic approach.Indeed steak will not make you fat .
Knowing what you eat and exercise is the key to a healthy way of life,although with my sport,there is a fine line between healthy and unhealthy and some""idiots""go way too far.
What i think is normal and healthy,another person will think,""well that guy is nuts"".
Thanks anyway for your offer to help,appreciated. :Smile_great:

ahh oke  :Smile_honoring:
Well, i started with bodybuilding but after an injury on my arm i had to stop it, than had not more time for that (you know student life, exams, friends all this things. i know it shouldn't be an excuse) after stopped i started again but i felt it wasn't what i really liked.. so i went jogging (wanted to do our half marathon 20km) and now i'm doing "fitness'' (i don't like to call it bodybuilding since it's different but my friends call it bodybuilding :p) and yeah i think i eat very healthy, i'm not a pro but also not a newbie.. also get trained from a friend who is professional coach (studied for that on university)

btw i weight 93 kilo, no idea how many pound that is :D (ripped i shall be at 85-83 kilo)

Some insight into the red juice in your meat, it's not blood. It's myoglobin and water, and myoglobin is very pigmented (and you guessed it, it's red). So the more myoglobin, the redder it will seem. That's why mammals like cows and such have red meat, and chickens and most sea life have 'white meat', it's to do with their levels of myoglobin

In case you were wondering what myoglobin is, it's much like what hemoglobin does for the blood. Only then instead of storing oxygen in red blood cells, it stores oxygen in muscle cells. It's needed for muscles that need immediate oxygon for energy during frequent, continual use.


Now lets imagine for a second that it was blood, how would that be a bad thing as long as it tastes good and doesn't have any harmful extras to it. Not to mention, you'd be using something that would otherwise be discarded. I like most of my red meat medium-rare (closer to medium than rare that is), which means you will still get the red liquid. If it tastes like it does now, and was found to be blood, I really wouldn't care unless it was unhealthy.
