Beef?

Hi guys,

I'm right around 3 months post-op, and haven't had any beef yet. When did you introduce it back into your diet? I don't think I could handle a steak (it would probably get stuck, no matter how well I chewed it), but maybe something soft like slow-cooked BBQ brisket, or a very tender pot roast could work. Of maybe some extremely thinly cut roast beast. My surgeon's handbook mentions beef (roasts and steaks) only after being a year or so out. Has that been your experience?

I had beef at 9 or 10 weeks. I would avoid brisket, pot roast, etc. for a while. And ground beef, too. All of those things are ground or slow cooked because they are the crappiest, toughest cuts. Even cooked properly, brisket and pot roast are still stringy.

I started off with beef tenderloin. It's the most expensive cut, but the most tender piece of beef. After that, I moved to the most tender parts of ribeye. It was a lot longer before I could do ground beef, brisket, and less expensive cuts.

So I could tolerate steak much better long before a piece of chicken breast. I've had ribs, pot roast, and brisket stuck many times, but never a ribeye or filet.

A good cut of steak is more tender than say a pot roast, or even ground beef... I still can only do pot roast with extra sauce on it to help it go down.

But a ribeye? at 3 months I'm sure I was eating it... it's one of my favorite things to eat.

Probably also depends on how you like your steak cooked... if you do it well done, then you probably shouldn't ever waste another steak again

I have usually just gone with medium. I don't like super rare meat, but I don't want it to be incinerated, either. Thanks, Pammieanne!

Howdy,

I ate 3 ounces of sirloin last night with no trouble and I am 8 weeks out. I haven't had trouble with anything meat related as long as I chew it to a pulp. The only reason I don't eat more beef at this early stage is that the low fat ground beef doesn't have enough fat to make it juicy. Most fatty beef has too many calories to fit in my less than 650 a day calorie plan so I dont eat it. I will later when the calories don't count as much.
