    My goodness. Raw liver is...erm...raw. Very bloody and tastes of metal. I like it, but I’m absolutely certain that the majority would not.

    Feel ten years younger already :D

    Certainly worth considering. I do intend to have a raw steak this week, so...

    It’s an acquired taste, shall we say. Mostly I enjoyed it because I could feel myself getting younger with each bite. You know when you eat something and you can just tell that it’s going to make you immortal...it tastes like that. Yummy blood, full of goodness. I’ll probably wake up tomorrow with long blonde hair, wearing a horned helmet. Or something.

    Surely the outside surfaces of meat has bacteria which is killed by cooking - eating raw meat seems foolhardy.

    Snap, we had that yesterday (never enough), we must keep this quiet as the price will go up, what a meat.

    This has crossed my mind but honestly I’m doubtful that I need to be concerned so long as the meat is fresh. Everything is covered in bacteria anyway, including me.

    I’m addicted. Had never eaten it until about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Boy have I missed out! Had the butcher chop up an entire tail on Saturday so plenty more in stock.

    The long blonde hair may take you a little longer bulkbiker, unless your coiffeur has changed in recent times?

    It seems that there are few ox tail devotees here, here's a couple of tails we had a few years back put in the slow cooker with a heap of veggies.

    Ok, it is good to share, I suppose. I am from a West Indian back ground so my Mum cooked this at least once every two weeks, usually curried.

    What I don’t get is why oxtail is now so expensive, it used to be thrown away or used for dog food and it can’t be all that popular in the mainstream.

    Ox tail takes a bit of chasing up from our butcher, the store where we do our grocery shopping has them for ~$8.50 but we look elsewhere at that price.

    I’m a liver and kidney gal too, especially since my folate and b12 tested low, despite a carnivorous way of eating.

    Probably a pack of liver a week, usually made into pate, stir fried a la Bulkbiker, or as Offal Soup.
    Love it.

    Never raw. Doesn’t appeal. But I would never rule it out.

    Very popular in the West Indian and Indian communities in the UK, along with goat and cow foot (not sure this will become mainstream), but curry goat is another matter entirely.

    If it can make that regrow it really would be a miracle food ...
