Well, you too can buy meat glue. http://www.modernistpantry.com/trans...FZFb7AodgzZ2tA Perfectly legal here.

I just got done watching Food, Inc. As they were summing it up... An entire industry built on dishonesty.

Meat glue has become well known amongst the restaurants practicing molecular gastronomy. Ferran Adria of el Bulli is famous for this.

It's funny because I work in the food industry and I have never heard of this with the markets that I work with. But then again I do produce, not meat.

Now see all you nay-sayers, the McRib is the only safe solution to eating out. It contains real genuine McRib meat.
Humph!

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little thinking that there is only one way they can make these...

What would that be? A bi-cow? Sociable Cow? Cow-abunga?

Depends on how much glue.

I could go for the bovine centipede.

Yeah, they've progressed a lot since then. Even if we don't eat at McDonald's our food is made industrial style. They are pretty close to being able to eliminate the cow and just grow meat directly.

The risk of ground beef is all the exposed surface area, right? so what happens when someone cooks this glued-together meat to medium-rare? or rare? It doesn't sound like that would be a safe thing to do.

I've actually used the stuff. I really like duck, but I don't like duck skin, which is really fatty. So I skin the bird to render the fat separately, and use the TG to glue chicken skin on the breast. Works really well, it's flavorless as far as I can tell. Kind of tricky to work with but, honestly, it's just another tool. Cooking is just applied chemistry anyhow.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Depends, if you've lived for years on a truck stop diet, you can eat raw spoiled pork and all you'd need would be an alka-seltzer.

So that's how they made the "meat ponchos".
