This seems wild. I suppose it is not readily available.

    Ooof. I like my steak mooing but that's a little too visceral-looking for me. Have my share, please.

    Here's the original article with a pic of a prepared dish (if you'd told me they were round peppers I'd eat it fine, but in context...):

    And here's the video that they link to of a few of the critters being hacked open by some jerkwads:

      The description of the taste does not make it sound like bucket list material.
