Wisconsin Health Officials Discouraging Residents From Eating Disgusting Holiday Sandwich
Growing up in a Milwaukee suburb I was lucky enough to live in a city with lot's of ethnic diversity. And with that comes some traditional foods from other countries, but I have to say I have never heard of this dish before. Apparently it is a German food and even the sound of it makes we want to barf. I am not sure what they call it there, but in Wisconsin it is lovingly called "A Cannibal Sandwich."
According to Mandatory.com:
If you’ve never heard of this delicacy, it’s probably because you don’t live in Wisconsin (and you have some self-respect). Cannibal sandwiches, also known as “tiger meat,” are essentially raw ground beef topped with sliced raw onions and sandwiched between two slices of rye bread.
I am someone who many of you know has to have my steaks and burgers super well done, no pink and there are people eating sandwiches made out of raw ground beef? I won't even give that to my dogs for fear they would get sick. Apparently the Wisconsin Department of Health feels the same when it comes to human consumption:
Back in 2018 The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel listed this as one of Wisconsin"s favorite Holiday Foods . What? I will stick with Kringle thank you and hard pass on this hot mess. And for everyone who claims people have been eating this for years and never got sick, I say they just have gotten lucky so far.
