I bit <off/from> meat from a bone


Senior Member
Could you please help me whether I correctly wrote this:

I bit off meat from a bone. (for example a chicken thigh is eaten this way)

Thank you

    I bite meat off bones - no from. So a sentence would be, in the Present Simple, He always bites meat off the bones, instead of using his knife to cut the meat off.

    The verb in your sentence is not correct. If you want the Past Simple you need to check out the irregular form of the verb.
