Do you eat horse meat? Some do. How about beef burgers containing horse meat?

By MoneySheep   Jul 16, 1:48pm   1 link   331 views   14 comments   watch (1)   quote      

You just don't know for sure, your beef burgers might just contain horse meat. I know of a grocery store that sold ground beef with horse in them, and got caught. Yek!

There was a scandal in Europe where authorities detected beef burgers containing horse meat. And selling sick old horse meat not fit for human consumption.

I'll try anything but it needs to be a healthy specimen and there needs to be at least one regional dish made from it.

Bull Balls fits that description better than Horse Meat. So I would eat Bull Testicles before I would eat Horse meat.
If it were good, or even good for you. It would have been a meat animal centuries ago.

like dog and cat, there's a reason it's not regional food. Because they are carnivorous and are expensive to raise to adult size harvest.
That's why in some Asian cultures, Dogs are the family garbage disposal. Everyone collectively eats once a year at a festival. Nobody actually raises the dogs with a special diet for this purpose. They eat the left overs and scraps. After growing season they no longer need the dogs, nor can they afford to feed it. so the whole region donates their dogs for the festival feast.

IF I were there on that occasion I might try it. But I wouldn't make a special trip for it nor would I order Dog if I saw it on the menu somewhere.
That festival setting is the only setting I would try it.

Perhaps if people here were made to eat their unwanted pets. People would stop buying them then abandoning them when they got to be a challenge.

Ever read up on the dog farms in South Korea and other Asian countries, dogs bred for human consumption ?

Must be a $600 dog. Unless they are eating puppy meat. Ever own a dog? They cost a ton to feed.

"If people here were made to eat their unwanted children, people would stop having them then abandoning them when they got to be a challenge".

Is this going to be the new policy of Team Trump to cut back on food stamps, welfare etc. ? What about recipes, will they come from the federal government or be part of block grant package to the states ?

TPB - You can't readily fix stupid in pet owners anymore than you can with irresponsibility in parents, they often seem to go hand in hand.

Now that you ask, yes - all of my life including Mutley who is 1.5 years right now. Food is the least of my concerns and by far the least costly aspect of ownership, always has been and always will be.

A horse is a large herbivore like a cow. It tests about the same as beef.
Why don't Americans eat horses?

And shit. Most fast food hamburgers are filled with shit from meat product factory workers who shit in meat during smoke breaks.

Why are horses dogs and cats exempt from food chain? They eat them in China and Korea just fine.

Most horses have had thousands of sweaty asses pounded into their back, permeating the epidermis and infecting nearby t-bone possibilities.
Unridden horses, however, could become a thing...

Not really despite the dog meat festival in China recently. Korean attitudes are changing very quickly and not quite the mainstay you would believe and you forgot Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines etc. The more westernized the countries become and their people travel abroad - a lot of what was, is becoming what isn't. Values change as people broaden their horizons - in most cases. Korea is holding on to a tradition but like other things in Korea is fading away quickly as those that enjoy the meat die off. China - more of a necessity in some areas but even that is changing.

Perhaps if you did some additional research into how they "tenderize" the dog meat for example, you might not be so glib. Then again slaughter house conditions in this country and other "civilized" countries are nothing to write home about either.

Horse meat tastes quite good. I've had it in France. It's not common in restaurants and it's almost always a special when the meat is available. The original steak tartare was horse meat. Named for the Turkic Tatars who would tenderize horse meat under their riding saddles before consuming it raw.
