MAT's explanation is more accurate than mine, I think.

Curing takes care of this so bacon and ham are much safer than other types of meat in terms of putrescence. Pork does not go off discernibly faster than say lamb or poultry, and a lot less quickly than fish. Beef does last a bit longer usually.

Chicken (and other poultry) actually is the one most susceptible to bacterial infection. Hence you do not eat chicken rare, ever...

I've just copied this. Gonna have to try it!

I only tried the breast. Meh at best, and I was put off to some extent by the risk, although I enjoy meat or fish tataki, where the outside is seared but the inside is raw (top pic). My mother definitely wouldn't have approved. And I'll also willingly eat French food here, where the meat is invariably half raw (bottom pic is kidneys, the red is their blood: was delicious).

Forgot to mention, put a little water in the bottom of the dish and start with a layer of onions - helps stop the potatoes sticking 😊

Interesting. Not known anyone who's tried the raw chicken stuff....fair play. Closest I got in Japan was raw horsemeat and mane. The latter was disgusting, just a tiny slab of yellow fat basically.

Nah. Was beefy coloured. Tough, almost had that gamey / smokey sort of aroma.

Wasn't bad at all, but don't really know if it was shit, good or great quality so you know.
