We were taken to dinner the other night by a salesperson and that got me thinking.
When I went on my mission to England we were told that we were to eat everything except blood sausage and blood pudding. Our mission president explain that was church policy and based on scriptures from the Old Testament. I was glad we had the policy. Although some of the other English dishes weren’t my favorite I found I could eat almost anything.
As a side note I told all my landladies that I wouldn’t eat any yellow (smoked) fish either. That was after I found a live worm while eating a piece of smoked fish.
Anyway this sales person ordered his steak rare. He was raised on a ranch and said as long as it was dead and at least warmed thru it was perfect. The steak he got could have moooooed!
If that’s not eating the blood I’m not sure what is.
I like mine steaks medium well, more grilled flavor, even crispy edges are nice. Of course as a pharisee I don’t have any blood gushing out of my steak when I cut it…so I’m ok. But then I thought the blood in my steak is just cooked longer. So why the ban on blood sausage and blood pudding. Should the ban be on your rare steam eaters instead?
