i saw the episode of man v food when they served that thing. it was a giant lump of dry cooked crumbled beef. yuk.
reminds me of survival training where we each got a knife, blanket, and a pound of ground beef to survive for 3 days. we were taught to make a fire, find some slate or another flat, non-granular rock, and cook the meat on it until eay more than well done so as to make meat last.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
