Never had it, but want to try. Watched Alistair Overeem eat some in an interview about a year ago. Who is Alistair Overeem? He will be a UFC heavyweight champion soon. He swears by horse meat.

To quote Rodney,
"This steak still has marks where the jockey was hitting it!"
Maybe it was dog food.

We use to have butchers that carried it, but unfortunately it is no longer wide spread. (just like liver, veal kidney etc.) It is now used in processed meats here in The Netherlands.
My Mom used to make braised beef with onions (Hachee) from it, and it is the best meat for that. It is a bit on the sweet side.
I recall horse steak which is great. Just a bit lean, so a quick sear should do it.

Hmm.. I'm gonna find me a butcher that has some horse meat :-)

Went to Switzerland and while there we had an expensive meat fondue dinner that had all you could eat tiger shrimp, chicken, beef, turkey, and horse meat. I was not sure about eating something I grew up ridding. but we finished the plate. It was a leaner meat then beef, you knew it was not beef though. It would be ok if it had alot of spices.

Yes, was in the Army, stationed in Hawaii, had a 30 day training excercise in Takeo, Japan. Ate it there, it was very lean and flavorful.

Probably but not knowingly. I worked in Saudi Arabia for a while and after going to a feed lot one day I saw everything but an elephant and a pig waiting to be butchered. I sure missed my bacon and sausage for breakfast.

I've never knowingly eaten horse meat, but I would definitely try it. I don't really see why people have a mental aversion to eating one kind of critter over another. If it tastes good, I'll eat it. There is absolutely nothing on earth nastier than a chicken, (except maybe a vulture,) but everybody eats those. I also think the "stringy" description of meat is mostly a mental or prepartation factor, other than a quality of the meat. Ever had an old, boiled chicken? Very stringy. That doesn't mean all chicken is. If you cut a piece of prime beef along the grain and boiled it, it would also be extremely stringy.

My sister said she saw horse meat on the menu while stationed in Sicily, Italy.
