Safety and Ethiopian Beef Kitfo

So, I ordered kitfo at an Ethiopian restaurant last night. Somehow, it escaped my knowledge that this was rare/raw (or mostly rare, anyway) beef. I attribute this to the fact that it was covered in a strong, spicy sauce and had a firm texture. Anyway, they packaged the leftovers up for me to take home...I was eating some of the bread that the meat was sitting on today and chatting with someone and they were horrified that I was eating these leftovers. Now I'm worried, too. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thoughts, stories, comments?
