How safe is raw pre packaged mince?

    I recently tried homemade Kitfo. She sliced the beef herself from a butcher bought fillet and prepared the dish immediately.

    I'm told the bacteria live on the surface only, so freshly minced beef won't development much bacteria before it reaches your stomach.

    However, pre packaged mince might be a different story. I was going to try steak tartare at home.

    Has anyone ever had carpaccio or tartare?

    Wife told me she couldn't find vegetarian mince at the supermarket...

    I told her she should have tried the Quorner shop.

    Quorny.

    Raw meat, especially minced, has a vile texture.

    But as the saying goes for packaged mince, if it's brown, chow on down, if it's movin' , keep on groovin'

    Got talking to a chef as he was making steak tartare once and he said he always made it from scratch to be eaten relatively quickly soon after.

    +1 to this. Don’t use prepacked mince meat. You don’t know how the meat was stored before being on the shelf.
