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


Cows and mooshrooms[edit]

When adult cows and mooshrooms are killed, they will drop 1-3 raw beef. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 1-6 with Looting III. If killed while on fire, they will instead drop steak.

Natural generation[edit]

Raw beef can be found in 48.6% of village butcher chests in stacks of 1–3.



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.
