Cattle Skin (beef, bison, elk, deer, etc)
« on: February 02, 2011, 06:03:45 pm »
Has anyone ever eaten cattle skin ie beef, bison, elk, deer, etc. And not chicken skin here   l)

Just wondering the nutritional value of said skin, if it is edible (lol wouldn't the cow marks be on it/hair). Has anyone ever eaten it?

I have not but I'm intrigued by it. I was watching "Bizarre Foods" on TV and Andrew Zimmern was talking about the high Vitamin D concentration in the skin. Might be a good source for those concerned about getting enough.

In the past, I've bought a slab of pork skin, with fat under it. I ate the fat, but the skin was quite hard to chew, not very palatable. It also had a bit of hair on it. Cooking makes it soft. I imagine that cattle skin would be even harder to eat raw.

Is the vitamin D stored in the actual skin, or in the fat under the skin?

I'm not sure. In the episode they were eating beef skin which was cut into thin strips and sauteed ( I think in a sauce but possibly in oil). They didn't appear to have much/any fat on them but that's not to say the fat isn't where it's stored.

I can't find anything with a Google search to validate or refute the claim. -\

Without cooking for hours skins are not edible, afaik. But never tried it. Doesn't sound appealing...

Does anyone know any places that provide, sell, or if you can ask for cattle/ grass fed animal skin (beef, bison, lamb, elk, etc) to be included?

I'll ask my farmer to provide me the beef skin. I'm sure he'll be selling that to me. I believe the vit D in it. Probably summer time it has the most vit D. Than I can figure it out how to consume, where "nothing is written down the stone" :D

Vitamin D in thought to be formed in the fat(oil) which is on the skin and the hairs, whichever is most outward. If the animal has little hair it can also be absorbed into and through the skin; whereas a longer haired animal has to lick its fur to obtain the D, as none or little can be absorbed into(and through) the skin.
