For the record, the Rosh defines "blood that moved" specifically as having left the meat altogether; he seems to be your primary source for your paragraph beginning "There are opinions..."

@Menachem I believe you are right. See the Tur on YD 67. Please post as an answer for credit. Thanks!

@Menachem Sounds like an interesting theory. Do you have any citations to back it up?

@DoubleAA You seem to be defining "poresh" as leaving the piece of meat altogether. The Shach is defining "poresh" as one drop of blood moving one millimeter within a capillary.

@DoubleAA So let's assume "dam eivarim" is blood in the capillaries after the heart stops pumping. What is the logic behind prohibiting blood that has "moved", while permitting blood that has remained stationary? Remember, just a few minutes ago, that blood was all moving. So when does the "lock" happen? At the moment of shechita? No way; the blood is gushing out the animal. When the heart stops beating? Technically, the animal was already dead the moment the simanim were cut. So you could have already carved up the animal and started salting it before the heart stopped...

@DoubleAA - I didn't make any judgments about chalita; I'm learning about melicha now. It's quite possible that when I get there, I'll raise another question about chalita, as you say... :)

comment How could boiling 3 eggs at a time help?
@CHM - 60% != 1/60. You need 60 parts kosher to nullify the forbidden taste, i.e. 98.4%

@DoubleAA - Regarding them all having the same taste, that's exactly the case that YD 109:2 is dealing with, where you have min b'mino, i.e. the same taste, and you still require 60:1 to nullify the issur.

@DoubleAA - have you ever had a chullent with whole eggs in it? The eggs fully absorb the meat taste. So yes, eggshells are porous.

That's talking about yavesh b'yavesh, where there's no taste transfer. Our case is where one part treif was cooked with 2 parts kosher. In which case you need 60:1 to nullify the taste. Yoreh Deah 109:2 - thanks for the link!
