Raw Beef

From Minecraft Wiki

Raw Beef is a food item obtained by killing cows or mooshrooms. Steak can be obtained by cooking the raw beef in a Furnace.

Raw beef is dropped by Cows and Mooshrooms when killed. Each animal has a chance to drop 1-3 raw beef. The Looting enchantment will increase the maximum number of possible raw beef drops by 1 per level. Each piece of raw beef restores 1.5 hunger points (File:Half Shank.pngFile:Shank.png) and grants 1.8 points of saturation. Raw beef can also be used to heal or breed tamed wolves.

A player can use a Flint and Steel, Fire Charge, a Sword with Fire Aspect, or a Bow with Flame to set cows/mooshrooms on fire which will allow them to drop steak when they are killed while on fire.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before update 1.8, raw beef could be traded with butcher villagers at a rate of 14-17 raw beef for 1 emerald; however, this feature was removed in this update.
  • Raw beef's texture in Beta 1.8 had a black outline, but was changed in 1.4.2 to the current texture.
