This raw beef sushi is not entirely safe to eat. This delicacy is served with soy sauce and wasabi. Wasabi is a Japanese plant with thick green roots which tastes like strong horseradish. It is used in cooking, especially in powder or paste form as an accompaniment to raw fish.

Ukai

Japanese ukai.

The meat is boiled at high temperatures to kill the bacteria on the outside. Then the cooked section is cut away, leaving only the raw part. This food is apparently safe to eat, however, five people have died from eating it. First you mince the beef with a knife and add a sauce which is made from sesame oil, vinegar and miso sauce. It is served half chopped and half minced with an egg yolk, some garnish and cucumber, green onions and sesame seeds. When eaten, it is gooey and creamy.
