Tiger Meat

I have never heard of this! Saw it on another forum, and seemingly it's popular in ND. Apparently it's seasoned raw beef you spread on crackers, and not made from actual tigers. It still sounds disgusting. I was ready to go postal until I got the explanation.

Sounds like steak tartare. I've never had it. I have had carpaccio, which was really good.

North Dakotans apparently have their own terms. I checked, and it's been around for a long time. I like beef carpaccio, and have had steak tartare. No cleaner beef than NoDak beef, so I guess if you're gonna eat it raw, that would be where to eat it.

I'm with you Dawg! Tiger meat sounds as shocking as Whale meat!
Geeeeze!

It's interesting how some places have totally different names for a common products. Like if you say dolphin fish , and people think you are eating dolphin, while in reality it is mahi mahi.

I'm not finding those names shocking. What would you make of "Sh## on a Shingle"?

Tiger meat. Not so much. SOS is quite good. My dad was in the Army WW2. He came out still liking it, one of the few things I ever heard him request, so mom made it fairly often, which is why I guess I like it too. Can be made with dried beef or with burger.

I have had beef tartare, didn't care for the raw egg yolk that was served on top, otherwise, it was an ok spread.

I like Tiger sauce, says "Try me" on the bottle and is located at the store near the Tabasco aisle. Starts out kind of sweet then turns spicy hot. Mmmmm. Recently I saw a recipe for home made tiger sauce to be served with Baltimore pit beef. Didn't copy it as I don't intend to make Baltimore pit beef anytime soon. It was entirely different than the bottled stuff, I think it was a spicy white sauce?

I think that dates back to WW1 or 2. I spent half my life in ND, and had never heard of Tiger Meat! Also, I don't know of any NoDak who ate raw beef!

If North Dakotans are anything like Minnesotans, Steak or any meat is to be cooked Super well done, and ketchup is the standard steak sauce. Northern Blackened has an entirely different meaning than say NOLA blackened.

I grew up in Minnesota and I eat my beef medium rare. And I got that from my mother who lived in Minnesota her entire life until I was a senior in High school.
