Pork Pie? This has to be a Europe thing. I'm intrigued.

Pork pie, mustard and a good pint!

Sorry, but if it isn't an actual steak then yuck. It's too easy to hide all the nasty shit that I don't want to eat if you let folks grind it up and form it.

You don't eat any kind of sausage, or pepperoni or anything?

Its a meaty sandwichy thing! I looked it up!

You're getting the right idea. Its a fast solution. The guy who earlier suggested partially freezing a steak then cutting it against the grain has a better idea but you need to have a steak lying around plus you're not going to partially freeze it, slice it and cook it in under 5 minutes.
Mine wasn't the greatest thing ever but it was good enough for that moment.

This is what bacon is for!

Ugh... people will bitch and moan about how much food we waste because we only use certain parts of the animal we want. "The natives used EVERY part of the animal so NOTHING went to waste" they constantly remind us.

Then they bitch and moan when they hear about all the food we make out of the remains of the animals we found a use for. "It's just lips and assholes! Why would anybody eat something that's just processed scraps? Think of the children!"

We either use nothing but the best parts of the animal and throw all the rest of that shit in the trash, or we find a way to make all that trash slightly edible.

I grew up in a town with lunch meat plant. Even the moo went into products.

I'm fine with that, I like offal, and sausages, and faggots, and pork pies...

They need to be cheap then though and post #2 in the thread says not!

As a kid I remember Mom buying frozen "minute steaks" which I'm pretty sure predated Steak-umms. They were super-thin cut steaks, maybe 5" or so in diameter. I think they might have had a small pat of butter frozen with them. They were sliced from a cheaper cut of beef, not an emulsified formed thing. They really were minute steaks, as it took under a minute to cook one in a skillet. Throw it on some some bread with mustard and you had an ultra quick sandwich. We ate the hell out of those things.

I'm def ok with my dog eating lips and assholes.
That, and if it's going to be sold for human consumption they should cut the euphemisms and sophistry. As long as it doesn't make people sick and there's a market, why not sell it? I don't care too much, what bothers me is that they're allowed to use technicalities to lie about what they're actually selling. The free market can't work when people don't even know what they're buying.

Man I used to have these as kid. They were awesome with tomato sauce and mozzarella on a hoagie bun. I'd eat two.
