The USDA recently recalled almost 111,000 pounds of frozen beef steak fritter due to the risk of small pieces of plastic that may be in the food. That's all well and good and nice to know the USDA has our back, but what in the hell is a beef steak fritter?

Maybe it's a regional thing or an alias for some part of the cow most would prefer to just call a "fritter." Maybe. Yesterday, Kate Kennedy revealed some of the meat industry's dirty little secrets, so when unidentified meat products are released in massive quantities, it naturally makes a person nervous. Preliminary internet searches yield nothing to indicate what a beef steak fritter looks like, but if you're one of those people just about to dive into whatever that is, check to make sure it isn't tainted, then please use the comment section below to let us know exactly what a beef steak fritter looks like, and better still, where to find one (besides a prison cafeteria).

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
