Rotten meat can be obtained from drowned, zombies, zombie horses and zombie villagers. Each of them stores 0-2 units of rotting meat.
What do you do with rotting meat in Minecraft?

Eating rotten meat
Players can eat rotten meat to satisfy their hunger if they let it rise for 30 seconds.Eating rotten meat restores 4 times hunger and 0.8 times satiety, but has an 80% chance of causing hunger for 30 seconds. Note that the duration is not cumulative if you eat multiple pieces. So by eating rotten meat several times, a player can “overcome” the hunger effect that is likely to occur.
A more productive use of rotting meat is to breed and care for the domesticated wolves that exist in the Minecraft world. Wolves are immune to the effects of starvation.
Rotten meat can also be used for trading with first level village clerics. In exchange for 32 pieces of rotten meat, they will offer you an emerald.
