    These days, this meal would trigger major class action law suits. People had real hardy stomachs.

    My father used to enjoy having steak tartare but it never had all that sauce in it. Just mean and onion and an egg yolk. In fact he used to eat raw beef and onion sandwiches. He called them cannibal sandwiches.
    My dad isn’t dead, he just doesn’t eat that anymore. IDK why. If anything meat is probably cleaner than ever.
