    Have you ever eaten horse?

    What with all the stink from the UK about horse meat finding its way into certain major brands beef products, I thought I'd pose an open question...

    ...have you ever eaten horse?

    I tried some in France once when I was about 15. It was okay. Not bad.

    Would I try it again? Only if there wasn't a better alternative on offer. While I wouldn't go out of my way to eat it again, I don't think it's any worse then eating baby sheep, pigs or cows.

    Yes I had it in France when I was on a skiing trip. A cheval burger. Tasted just like Zebra.

    My experience was like a cheap, second rate cut of beef that hadn't been tenderised particularly well, but had been gently casseroled for a long time to compensate.

    Like I say, it was okay. Just nothing spectacular.

    I've been to Norway and thought that whale was average tasting. The locals love it of course.

    You're barking up the wrong tree if you expect me to bite there, boy!

    Oops, I already have.

    One my favorite foods is the mule sausage in Germany. That and some of dark fremented bread and the cheeses and white Rhine wine are simply exquisite. Eating and drinking beer in Germany is really a treat.

    Moose meat similar to cheval.

    While working in Ulan Battor, I was once offered a tasty snack, that someone later told me was a fried horse's testical. At the time, I was very hungry so it tasted alright to me !!

    Had horse meat many times when I was young in The Netherlands, nothing wrong with horse meat, tastes a little sweeter over (beef) steak, but can be as tender as! @ 2prick, maybe it was an old mining horse? Horse meat is very, very lean and myoglobin rich, very very healthy to eat, don't understand what all the fuzz is about.

    Finally the British get something healthy too eat and they take it off the shelves :-)

    When I was a kid and running around all day, people would say;" probably eaten horse meat".

    Still have an old sign from a French butchers shop "boucherie chevaline" great looking sign. Will put it in or on the house when it is finished (whenever.....)
    If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.

    Only in Hungarian salami (which was delicious). Never had it on a plate like a steak though.

    I too have eaten horse meat in Holland and if I hadn't been told I'd never have known the difference.
    I wonder how many lawsuits are going to come out of this ?

    I prefer it to beef. Cheaper and more tender.

    A good venison is much preferred over Moose.
    Less gamey.....subtle hint.

    Wonder where all this recalled frozen meals are going to end up?, relabeled and export
    back to France or Belgium, where they dont mind a bit of horse, now they are saying its
    Donkey as well!, or the Chinese they would pay a premium price for it.

    This is the tip of the iceberg,no one knows what shit they are putting in our food,if this
    can happen in UK where they are supposed to have Govt departments checking on the quality of food products,just imagine what goes on here
    regards Worgeordie

    You're right. There probably should have been a 'I Hope Not But Can't Be Sure' option for the poll.
