The Beefsteak mushroom has a shape which resembles a large tongue, with a rough reddish-brown coloured surface. It bleeds a dull red juice when cut, and the cut flesh resembles meat, which is how it gets its name. This mushroom is fairly common in the forest, and can often be found on the trunks of Oaks. It's edible and I have eaten them on several occasions, although they're not a favourite of mine.
