    Know Your Meat

    Ran across this handy little chart one can use next time you're at the Steak House:



    Never heard of 'Blue Rare' before. You could almost call that Steak Tartare except it's all in one piece.

    Can't afford going 'down under'! Terry has made that abundantly clear.

    I had some many years ago at a steak house in Pattaya (before the place went completely insane) but it was water buffalo tartare which wasn't too bad. A little 'mano' (lime) squeezed atop with coriander. Yum, yum.

    Excellent quality steak tartare at a French/Belgian restaurant in Hua Hin.

    Not on the regular menu but he does it as a special every 4-6 weeks. Served with french fries.

    Try Cafe De's Amis in Pattaya, a friend of mine says it's the best he's tasted and often drives from BKK to eat it.

    On the contrary, I know that the term "blue" is understood in the states in foodie circles. Though, I don't believe it is as popular as it once was because of the so-called danger factor and has become in house policy [even lawful] regarding steaks/burgers - since the bovine BSE/Mad Cow issues....

    In French you can order "bleu" steak. I usually go for medium rare, " point" cos i don't like blood all over the plate. Even though it does mix in nicely with the gravey.

    Always have your chips on a side plate, otherwise they get soggy.

    But then i am a heathen who actually eats horse.... best steaks ever. The meat is more tender and tasty.
