Beefsteak Fungus (Fistulina hepatica)
Grow your own edible and medicinal Beefsteak Fungus mushrooms with liquid culture syringes!
Fistuline hepatica or Beefsteak Fungus, is commonly seen in Britain, but can be found in North America, Australia, North Africa, Southern Africa and the rest of Europe. It has been nicknamed Beefsteak for its resemblance to a slab of raw meat and has been used as a meat substitute in the past.
Beefsteak Fungus is parasitic, causing brown-rot as it grows on oaks and sweet chestnuts. Characterized by a fan-shaped shelf, it has a pink to deep red color on top with a white to yellowish color on the underside. With its sour, slightly acidic taste, it typically needs a long time to cook to remove the bitterness. For eating, it must be collected young and can either be soaked or boiled in water. With its meaty texture, it is great in stir fries and stews.
