I was a raw meat eater for a bout a year. THere are some nice things about it... like perfect bowel movements. But ultimately I think cooking it slightly is better , not because of some paranoia over bacteria or pathogen but because I think cooking somehow unfolds the proteins and makes them easier to digest. Unlike some raw meaters I never "lost my taste" for cooked meat. I don't see how it is possible to say that raw meat is tastier , when in reality species that mostly eat raw meat dont even chew it but swallow it. I think that is wishful thinking.
Im only telling you this now because there is a direct relation on how much meat is cooked and how well you digest it.
So personally I use a clay pot for meat, and soak it first in water then just cook it low and slow and slightly underdone. That is how it tastes the best to me...
Usually if you want easier to digest meat, then try lamb instead of beef. The protein is smaller. But at the same time, its best to rotate your meats and eat a variety and not always the same thing.
