Blackstrap molasses( found in cooking/ baking aisle) is very high in iron if you are looking for something, you can mix it in milk. Beans, nuts, green leafy vegetables are good.

Perhaps you should have said * cooked rare* instead of "under cooked" because someone might misunderstand & eat meat that has not reached a temp high enough to kill off the e.coli & salmonella. The very lowest temp. meat should be, as indicated on a meat thermometer is 145 degrees F. However, you have a very good point that meat should not be cooked to death because the higher the temp, the less protein.

Spinach. Ask Popeye, if you can find him. Too much iron causes liver problems and heart attack. Maybe that's what happened to Popeye.

Women need around 18 milligrams of iron every day, while men and post-menopausal women need 8 milligrams.

Two types of iron can be found in food. Foods from animal sources contain heme iron, a type that is easy for the body to absorb. Vegetarian sources have non-heme iron, a form that cannot be absorbed as easily. For this reason, vegetarians may need to eat more iron to ensure that they absorb enough. Iron absorption can be increased by consuming sources of iron with vitamin C.

Red meat, especially liver, is one of the best sources of iron. A single serving of liver contains around 7 milligrams of iron, with red meat in general containing between 2 and 4 milligrams per serving. White meats contain some iron, typically 0.5 to 3 milligrams a serving, and eggs are contain iron.
Whole Oats, Kidney Beans, Dried fruit, Red Meat, and Spinach.

Red Meat, Avocado, Spinach, Broccoli, and Beans are all great sources of iron.
Also, the herb stinging nettle is jam packed with iron, so if you can find a stinging nettle tea, that would make you feel better instantly.

This is coming from an anemic person, so I know it works!

Liver, green vegetables - the darker the green the better.
For drinks it has to be Guinness beer. Be warned, it is very bitter to taste but pack full of iron.

Try eating red meat with orange juice. Vitamin C increases you body's iron absorption level. Do not drink or eat dairy products with the foods containing iron.
