Not Eating the Blood, but Spilling it as Water

The Law repeatedly commands us to not eat blood, either of mammal or bird. How do we go about removing the blood by the commands? What is the textual requirement? Are we supposed to wash meat until all the iron-based pigment is gone, or soak it for hours or days in salt water, or cut out all the vessels, or are we just supposed to drain the blood?

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] So always look into the text for answers to these questions. All answers are in the text if you read it slowly and carefully, accounting for every word.
