This isn’t something that most of us would tend think about on a daily basis, but it is likely something that is going into our stomachs without us even thinking about.
This gentleman is shedding some light on the fact that many restaurants and companies have begun using this meat glue to create “Franken-steaks” – a bunch of meat scraps formed together to be passed off as a steak. Most of these meat glues are made with animal blood, and for some, this could be harmful.
He begins by taking a slab of beef brisket as well as some inexpensive stew meat and compresses and “glues” them together with a powdered meat glue that anyone can buy at the store.
He then vacuum seals the meat and lets it sit in the fridge overnight.
The next morning when he gets the meat out of the fridge and slices the meat up, it looks exactly like a ribeye steak. He slowly cooks it for 90 minutes until the meat reaches 130 degrees fahrenheit then sears it on the grill until the meat is cooked until medium rare. What a good lesson to pay attention to what goes into our food!
