This is what a 3,400-year-old mummy steak looks like

If you were Queen Tiye of Egypt's parents you wouldn't want to go to the Otherworld just with some bread and beer and wine and jewelry. You would like to eat a good ribeye beef steak, prepared with a mixture of fat, beeswax, and Pistacia resin.

That's what Katherine A. Clarka, Salima Ikramb, and Richard P. Eversheda found in the mummified steak hidden inside the Queen parents' tomb, as shown in a research paper just published in PLoS.
