A player eating Rotten Flesh.

Rotten Flesh, also known as Zombie Steak, Zombie MeatPoison Steak or Rotten Meat, is the least saturating meat in Minecraft. It can be obtained in three ways: Temple (Desert or Jungle) Chests, killing Zombie Pigmen or killing Zombies, both of which drop it quite often. This food item has an 80% chance of inflicting the Hunger effect, which depletes your hunger bar much faster than normal. It is the only item dropped by Zombies that can be found even if the player doesn't do the killing.


  • Wolves are not affected by Hunger, therefore, Rotten Flesh should go to them unless you're in trouble.
  • These are useful food sources, especially when mining and out of food.
