Steak in Java Edition, or Cooked Beef in Bedrock Edition, is a food item obtained from cows or from cooking raw beef.
When a cow is killed, it drops raw beef. The Looting enchantment increases the maximum number of steak drops by 1 per level. If a cow or mooshroom dies while on fire, it drops steak instead.
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).
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
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.
