A British father who posted a video of himself eating his wife’s placenta said it tasted “like bad steak.”
Ross Watson, 32, cooked up his wife’s placenta alongside a traditional English breakfast of beans, sausages and toast.
In a video posted on Facebook, he can be seen munching on the organ, which he cooked and seasoned with pepper and brown sauce.
The video, which has been viewed 20,000 times, caused a commotion online, with one social media user branding Watson a “cannibal.”
“I’ve always said I’m going to eat my wife’s placenta,” Watson says in the clip.
“It’s definitely better cooked. Nine months in the cooking and about 10 minutes in the eating. Cheers!”
Friends of Watson sent him messages of congratulations, ridicule and bemusement.
“You do realise this makes you look like a crazy f**ker right?” one user wrote.
“Ama wee bit disturbed at the joy in ur face whilst eating it haha well done u tho now a can say a ken someone who ate a placenta [sic],” another posted.
“You are now ‘officially’ the craziest person I know!! And that takes some beatin,” a third friend said.
Watson’s wife, Heather, posted to one friend: “Yeah only time the s*** bag cooks and he knocks this up.”
Heather gave birth to their son, Lachlan, earlier this month.
