Beefsteak Fungus (Fistulina hepatica)
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.
