Steak (also known as Cooked Beef) is a food item, obtained by cooking raw beef or killing a cow while it is on fire. Butcher villagers will sell steak for emeralds. It is the cooked counterpart of raw beef.
When eaten, steak restores 8 (). It is most logical to use steak as a primary source of food, as the raw material is easily harvested, restores the second-highest amount of hunger points out of any easily obtainable, stackable food, and it provides the highest food saturation.
The raw beef required to cook a steak is dropped by cows. When a cow dies from heat damage, from something such as fire or lava, they will drop a ready-to-eat cooked steak instead of raw beef. Otherwise, raw beef must first be cooked in a furnace, smoker, or campfire before eating it to benefit the most.
