Years ago I went to my first "bull" roast, in Maryland, with my FIL. Being from the west, I expected, you know, a bull.  Roasting.
Anyway in the middle of the fire station hall where it was held there was a huge metal tub on a table with raw ground beef and piles of raw onions around it and piles of bread.
I'd never seen anyone eat raw beef that didn't come from a single cow, and you knew it was your cow. It was weird.

I'm surprised enough people survive for this to be a family tradition.

Kinda surprised they don't just sell irradiated sealed up raw meat for people like this - that'd pretty much get rid of any of the ugly possiblities

/assuming you took common sense precautions for opening, prep, and serving anyway

Had a truly delicious steak tartare at Thun in Switzerland a few years back, on a cattle farm. Seemed pretty fresh to me.

And you farkers subjected my people to hate crimes because we supposedly ate bats.

This is bloody disgusting.

Some of my wife's relatives have this at their parties.  With them at least, it's not just opening up a tube of industrial produced ground beef, or even picking up a pack of ground beef at the local market.  They either grind a single cut themselves or have the butcher do it for them.  That cuts the risk a fair amount, as you only have to worry about whether the one piece of meat was contaminated, not the multitude of cuts that could go into the pre-ground stuff.  None of them have gotten sick from it that I know of.  Still haven't really been tempted to partake though.

If I'm being honest, walmart has the best quality meat in my area, vs Meijer and Kroger.

Would I eat anything from Walmart in a carpaccio if I made it myself? fark no. Would I rather have an actual butcher in town? fark yes. But walmart delivers on quality ribeye, strips, tenderloins, etc.

ok, just for this question, throw the safety factors out of the window.

-so, it seems to traditionally be a hunk o' beef sirloin, (so around 90/10 lean/fat) fresh course ground and served with sharp raw onion, maybe parsley, maybe sharp mustard, and seeded rye (or real dark pumpernickel) cut in small, un-toasted bread slices....

can you even taste the meat? for real?

i'd think it just gives a particular silky/fatty texture to the dark bread and raw onion bite.... similar could be achieved by a thick ice cold layer of butter (or land o' lakes buttery spread) i'd guess. maybe compensate for the lack of raw beef with a drizzle of Worcestershire.

it's probably yum, if the above is what you're expecting to bite into......

anyone a devotee? tell us more!

We are talking about Wisconsin here. I mean those people run around with cheese hats on.

I've heard of this, it apparently used to be somewhat popular in German/American communities throughout the Midwest.  The traditional German dish it's based off of is typically uncooked pork rather than beef, but being America...

From what my dad told me, it is ground beef *At least in Washington Missouri, probably in the 1950's or 60's* but not from the supermarket.  They would kill a single cow just for the occasion then immediately butcher and grind up the fresh meat.  It's also heavily salted to slow bacteria growth.

How many cases of E. coli have resulted from this practice? They must have years of data. Perhaps, some alterations in animal raising and slaughterhouse practices are warranted if their product is routinely full of pathogens.

and mince it yourself, just before serving.

THIS is the shiat you need to explain to people from Wisconsin:

"You may be surprised to find that it tastes better when cooked!"

A good steak tartare is a thing of beauty. A bad one shoots out of your booty.

/had springbok carpaccio once
//farking. Amazing.
