    Let me clarify this experiment as many are not understanding what it's about. This experiment is about meat glue. Not about seasoning one inside and not the other.
    The comparison in the end is very clear that meat glue works. It does what it's suppose to do! The fact that I am not ok using this product is my personal choice. I know the meat industry, many chefs, butchers, restaurants and many others use it AND I RESPECT THEM! However, It still does not change my opinion that I don't want to use it!
    Now I want to know if you are ok using it? if so why do you feel its necessary to use it, appearances only? Let me know on the comments below.

      You probably shouldn't eat food prepared by the people who misunderstood the nature of this video. They clearly can't read directions. 😆

    BTW YES BAN MEATGLUE!!! why do we need this junk, it is just a way for BIG companies to sell us scraps, and pass them off as filet mignon, or sushi....i will never eat a chicken nugget again...thanks for the knowledge GUGA

    I like this test, but you did not tenderize the meat glue roast, or wrap it in twine. i feel that ninjas liking of the 1st steak was clearly pointed out due to the LACK of also skewed the result by pointing out (and showing bias) the way the 1st one fell apart. I love your videos, and not trying to be negative, but i would like to see a new one with all things being equal, and no HINTS...BTW I hate meat glue as well. KEEP up the good work.

    Meat glue should be banned world wide I would rather use twine and take more time than use a Frankenstein product I wouldn't let my dog eat meat glue

    Transglutaminase should be totally legal for personal use, and it should be legal for commercial. That being said the commercial use should be regulated, and there should be a label stating it's use.

  • David Good

    I'm not sure what the fuss is. "Meat Glue" is a powder that contains enzymes that break down meat to the point that they 'bond' together. It's science. The same science is used in your meat tenderizing experiments -- such as with pineapple, which contains an enzyme that breaks down meat. Same thing. I guess it's just a mental stigma -- for example, with some cultures eating ant eggs is considered a delicacy... but you wouldn't find me doing it. Gross!

    Be sure to wash off all the salt, or it will be too salty.

    Next, I am seasoning with salt.

    Sushi is not raw. Sashimi is raw. Sushi is cooked via chemical reaction or heat and then chilled. Sashimi is just a slice of raw fish.

  • Chriss E. K.
    Chriss E. K. 4 days ago

    Just be clear, meat glue is illegal in some countries not because restaurants used it, but because butchers used it to make fake ham from cheap meat. Basicly to scam people. At least in my country.

      @pangkaji I see thank you. Well here you can't even use it to make bigger fillet

    • pangkaji
      pangkaji 2 days ago

      In the US it is only legal if it is used to glue the same type of meat together and is sold as such. Glueing smaller pieces of fillet into a bigger piece of fillet and sell it as fillet is ok. You cannot glue small pieces of shoulder, round and shank into a fillet and sell it as fillet. That is called using fillers. It is false advertising and It is illegal.

    I believe they started using it to sell meat scraps at a higher prices through the form of ribeye and fillet mignon. It's just for plain ripoff reasons.

    • pangkaji
      pangkaji 2 days ago

      It is legal as long as all the scraps and cuts are from the same type of meat and sold as such. They cannot glue shoulder, round, shank with tenderloin and selling as tenderloin. That is called using fillers.
      However, they are allowed glueing smaller cuts of tenderloin into a bigger piece so of tenderloin so they can sell it.

    As I understand it meat glue is a product made from processed animal blood. It is unsafe to breathe I believe because it can coagulate/glue your lung tissue. A plant based substitute could be tapioca flour/starch or certain types of rice flour/starch products. It would be worth testing out.

  • Gibson
    Gibson 6 days ago

    I understand what meat glue is. It's not that it's an enzyme or that other enzymes are used in cooking often.
    1. I don't trust anyone who would push this product, because of #2.
    2. The products sole purpose is to deceive.
    3. It is extremely dangerous because surface bacteria (e coli for example) gets glued to the center of the deceptive meat, & when cooked medium or less, that surface bacteria can not be heated to a safe kill temperature.
    It's sole purpose is to cheat and price gouge. If that is the purpose, how could you trust purveyors of this product to be honest about anything, like telling you if there is anything nasty or harmful in it.
    Don't inhale it, but go ahead and consume it.

      For the inhale comment. You see water is fine to drink but you can’t handle it in your lungs very well. Same thing here

  • Joseph Gotta

    I like rare meat. My impression is that decay starts at the outside so a good hard sear should take care of that.....except when the outside is on the inside. All of the sudden you've made good steak like ground beef and I don't like well done steak. Thank goodness the sous vide method with very extended timing alleviates this concern.
