Steak[a] is a food item obtained from cows.



When a cow or mooshroom dies while on fire, it drops one to three steaks instead of raw beef. The Looting enchantment increases the maximum number of steak drops by 1 per level.


Raw beef can be cooked in a furnace, smoker, or campfire. Each steak removed from a furnace output slot gives 0.35 experience (22.4 experience per stack).

Ingredients Smelting recipe
Raw Beef +
Any fuel


In Java Edition, butcher villagers may give players steak if they have the Hero of the Village status effect.

In Bedrock Edition, journeyman-level butcher villagers sell 3 cooked beef for 1 emerald.



To eat steak, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 8 () hunger and 12.8 hunger saturation.


Steak can be used to breed and heal tamed wolves, lead them around, and make baby tamed wolves grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.
