Default Have you ever eaten Horse meat?

I sometimes check out the German/European BBQ forums and I noticed they sometimes cook horse steaks and horse roasts. I've never even seen or heard of horse meat in an American meat store. Have any of you seen it for sale or eaten horse meat?

Ate it in Paris a few years ago. Was ground and made into a patty type of thing but larger than a burger patty (minute steak?). It was okay, nothing spectacular. i'm too used to nice marbled, fatty American meat I guess. Besides, larger animals like horses run around too much to have tender meat in my opinion. I would eat it again if it was the only meat on the menu.

Back in the 60's McDonald's was being investigated for adding to the meat pile.

If I have, I did not know it.

Yep. It's fairly close to bison, leaner and a bit more flavour than beef.

My wife had it in Mexico, when she was young and visiting family. She doesn't recall it fondly. I think I read somewhere, maybe here, that horse was soon to be legal for retail sale, here in the USA. Having owned a horse, not sure if I'd try it. I know it's just a mental thing, like eating dog or cat (which I hear is really stringy, according to my dad. He had it in Vietnam)

In Italy they make salami out of donkeys. Something de asino.

It's an American hang up, just like dolphins. Why not eat a dolphin? If you say because it is a mammal, I am coming for your beef, pork, and horse.

My dad has ate it before, he said it was stringy and tough. He said it was when he was stationed in Korea while in the Army in 1968.

Having butchered a donkey once for dog meat, I'd pass. Stanky stuff.

If some one wanted some horse meat, I have a source. I don't feed it to the family as my girls will already have too many stories to tell on me. The judge and psychiatrist may see their side of it. (You know when they are old enough to have me committed)
