Kind of makes you stop and think twice before ordering, eh?

.
Filet mignon served in restaurants is often, in fact, an agglomeration of scraps of lesser beef, welded together with Meat Glue (http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news/consumer&id=8642900). [ABC]
Terje took powder and dusted it liberally over the meat pieces. The coated stew meat then went into a circular tin to give it a nice, round filet mignon shape. He was also able to make a New York strip out of thin cuts of round steak. Adding water makes a soupy glaze, and an easier way to coat the meat.The final steps were to seal the meat in a vacuum bag, adding some pressure to the bond, and then it was off to the fridge to set overnight. Twenty-four hours later, the humble $4-a-pound stew meat now looks like a $25-a-pound prime filet. Delicious.

VEGETARIAN PROPAGANDA!


..seriously though, between this and the "meat ammonia" thing a couple weeks ago, it's making me want to go back to being a vegetarian again.

I don't care, if it walks, crawls, slithers, rolls, flies, swims, grows, germinates, pollinates, breaths air or CO2 I will eat it.

Plants go nicely with animals and a glass of beer!

Anyone caught doing this should be fed to FKA.
