Raw beef is a food item which can be eaten by the player, or cooked in a furnace to make steak.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Cows and mooshrooms[edit | edit source]

Raw beef is dropped by cows and mooshrooms when they die. Each animal drops 1 to 3 raw beef. The Looting enchantment will increase the maximum number of possible raw beef drops by 1 per level.

Cows and mooshrooms that die while on fire will drop steak instead.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Food[edit | edit source]

To eat raw beef, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 3 (Half Hunger.svgHunger.svg) hunger and 1.8 hunger saturation.

  • In the Xbox 360 edition, the in-game description states that eating raw beef "can make you ill. Cook in a furnace." Despite this, eating raw beef has no effects on the player whatsoever.
