This seems like a dish right up the Paleo alley. Does anyone make their own steak tartare? Is it safe? Is it tasty?

Exactly! Ground beef can be scary stuff.

Sure, I've heard that too; as I understand it, that's part of the process they use for some sushi. However, freezing also changes the taste of beef considerably, to the point where I don't like it even when it's cooked.

In her book, Nora Gedgaudas claims that the USDA says meat or fish that has been frozen solid for two weeks is safe from parasites.

Don't use store-bought pre-ground beef for this one, kids. You are begging for contamination. Buy a piece of beef and grind it yourself in the food processor.

Another good way to eat raw beef is to take a frozen steak, slice it very, very thinly, and serve it sort of semi-thawed with some kind of dipping sauce. I have had this in Japan and it is fantastic.

It's probably safe most of the time. However, I have a good friend who got a nasty case of parasites from eating raw beef, so if you go that route, you might want to de-worm yourself every once in a while, as people do for their pets.

Personally, I think the invention of cooking is one of man's greatest achievements, and I greatly enjoy the benefits it brings, such as no bugs and easier and more complete digestion.

Yes I have made it with my own grassfed beef steak. It think it very delicious and my mouth is watering right now for some.

Choose a filet. Chop it up finely with a chef's knife if you don't have a food processor. I think this method makes is look less like hamburger and is more appetizing. That is the way I did it. I like the texture. Add in some capers, worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, italian parsley and season with salt and pepper.
