Six things grosser than horse meat in your burger

A live horse on the inside trying to eat its way out.

St_Francis_P: What's wrong with horse meat?


I've been wondering that myself.  If you're willing to eat the ground muscle tissue from one animal you should be willing to eat ground muscle tissue from others.

I personally wouldn't mind seeing #6 (The Thousand Animal Burger) on a menu.

It's even groser when he goes back for seconds.

Even more groser if it's a dead pony.

The horsemeat scandal is really more of an uproar about deceit.

Horse is okay - not my favorite, but definitely edible, especially when ground and spiced.

Still gonna eat burgers.  Zero farks given over here.

Except poop, none of those are gross. Nor is horse meat. Antibiotics overuse is a genuine concern (as is slaughterhouse cleanliness) but slideshows are way grosser than most of the contents of that slideshow.

jchic: St_Francis_P: What's wrong with horse meat?

I've been wondering that myself.  If you're willing to eat the ground muscle tissue from one animal you should be willing to eat ground muscle tissue from others.


The issue is that they can't track where the horse meat came from for certain so it may not be healthy for humans to eat.  If the horses were treated with certain medications during their lives, or after their deaths, it can contaminate the meat and make it unsafe for human consumption.  Thus the issue is more of not knowing what's in what you eat and where it came from rather than eating horse.

Personally I don't care, I like the deliciousness of lots of animals, but I do like to know what I'm eating and where it came from so that I know it's actually safe to eat.

This is why I buy a roast and grind the meat myself.

This. A lot. Horse meat is lean, tasty and in certain parts of the world a lot more affordable than cow / piggy / etc.

johnnieconnie: The chicken mcnugget thread right above this one comes to mind


Don't give McDonald's any ideas.

I can see it now, the McNuggetBurger.  The tender Chicken McNuggets you've come to love wrapped lovingly in 1/2lb thick Angus burger patty.  Or Maybe sandwiched between two 1/4 patties.

//I wouldn't be surprised if their test kitchens have tried it.

The cute makes them more tasty.

Especially with the correct application of salt, smoke, and time.

Not enough fat on bambi to make a good burger.  Do you add additional fat?

Re: "pink slime": Firstly they had the wrong picture posted, and had to take it down, then they say "BPI's Jeremy Jacobsen also claimed that "the language used to describe how it's made and what it's made from are 100% completely false," but did not provide any further details", while linking to a couple of sites which,if they had actually bothered to read them, provide just the answer they are looking for:

When beef carcasses are portioned the pieces that are cut off ("beef trimmings") often have lean meat remaining with them. These USDA inspected beef trimmings are refrigerated and sent to LFTB producers. Similar to standard ground beef processes, the trimmings are sent to specialized machinery which removes any connective tissue, cartilage, and other pieces that may incidentally accompany the trimmings. To separate the fat from the lean meat the trimmings are warmed to the temperature they were prior to refrigeration (105°F) using equipment designed to evenly temper the trimmings. The trimmings are then sent to a centrifuge where the fat is removed using centrifugal force. The lean meat which is now 94% to 97% lean, is then frozen and packaged. The process used to make LFTB is similar to the one used to separate cream from milk and a variety of other everyday foods.

Note that in reality "any connective tissue, cartilage, and other pieces that may incidentally accompany the trimmings" are removed, while the "article" says "Euphemistically referred to as the "trimmings," the leftover waste products from beef processing include fat, sinew, bloody effluvia, and bits of meat."

It's just another scare piece, short on fact, long on ohmyfarkinggodyouregonnadieunlessyoureadthisnow!!!!11!

I don't think it's about cuteness, it's probably the fact that horses have been used for centuries as pets and work animals. Same reason dog and cat meat are social taboos in most places, though they too are perfectly safe to eat. Meat is meat. The real troubling thing about the horse meat scandal is just WTF else could be in there? Where does Europe get its meat from, some dude's trunk?

I worry more about the the skuzzy kids in the back of the store that handle it and repackage it. the ones that aren't telling anyone they got dosed by mary jane claptrap or henrietta herpes. The ones that look at the "Employees must wash hands" signs and go "yeah, yeah" and scratch their balls and walk out and back to work.

I get mine locally from a family that doesn't believe in touching themselves "down there"
And it is organic and locally grown.

Meh, been grinding my own burger meat for years. Cheaper and tastier than store bought every time.

If you don't have or can't afford a good grinder, cube the meat into 1-inch chunks and freeze until it is still slightly mushy in the middle. Pulse in a food processor in 1/4 pound batches. If making burgers, a touch of kosher salt with each batch helps with the grind. You want chunks of about 1/8 inch or slightly larger in size.

If you don't have enough fat, some melted butter mixed in makes up for it. Thoroughly mix meat and butter together and refrigerate to let butter solidify somewhat before cooking, as well as to let it soak up some of the beef juices.

I don't find the idea of eating horse nearly as bad as the news reports of "horse DNA." If it's horse, just say so. "Horse DNA" may be more precise in terms of what they found, but it makes it sound like they discovered horse semen in the special sauce.
