Carn: DirkNiggla: If animals weren't supposed to be eaten, they wouldn't be made of meat.  I'd eat a dirty old urine soaked hobo if I was hungry enough... who cares if we eat the occasional horse?


headline = awesome x 2!

Hopefully you'll wash the hobo first though.


Urine is like a good brine soak, too long of a soak and it's too salty, not long enough and the meat is bland.  Just hope the hobo had some Boone's Farm/Ripple and maybe you'll get a nice hint of delish!  I also like to leave the dirt on them, it's kinda like an unwashed baked potato... it adds flavor.

You can barely get lamb around here.

Roo is quite good. It's too bad it's hard to get in the States.

/had Kangaroo burgers in Australia


There's an upscale* grocery store near where we live.  The sign by their butcher's counter offers cuts of meat from animals that I'm not sure I've ever actually seen with my own eyes.  Most of them will be frozen, but all of them are raised within a hundred or so miles.

Alligator is on there.  Pretty sure roo is on there.  Bison, of course.  The list goes on for a few columns; I'm slowly working my way through.  I want to take the manager aside and ask in a low voice what his going price for long pig is, or whether he's in the market to take some off my hands.  I know a guy who knows a guy.


* When you walk in, there's a big glass sign hanging over the entranceway with a greeting/motto displayed.  It's in Latin.  The store (small local chain) is in the Terminally First-World** part of the city.  The meat and produce is of fantastic quality, but for everything else we'd be stupid to not go a few blocks further to Kroger/Meijer/etc and pay sane prices for, say, toilet paper.

** Not only mentally incapable of living anything other than a luxury lifestyle, but incapable of understanding how other people do so.  Imagine a town populated by Romney clones.

You've probably eaten horse on more than one occasion and just never realized it. Now, I can understand not wanting to eat your friend Flicka, but as far as it being disgusting - no. Unless you're a vegan or something. Otherwise flesh is flesh. The only difference is what sentimental value we place on the creature from whence it came.

/yes, I'm advocating cannibalism here

drjekel_mrhyde: whistleridge: jennies1897: I'm really starting to wonder what horse steak would taste like.

Meh.

I've had goat, sheep, donkey, horse, monkey, hippo, crocodile, dog, cat, hedgehog, bushrat, muskrat, and a whole slew of antelope-looking critters that I'm not enough of a zoologist to identify. In general, most meat doesn't taste like chicken, it tastes like goat. Or like what it eats.

So...

Dog tastes like tough goat, but is tougher.
Cat tastes like goat, with a weird stringy flavor (but that could be because African cats eat weird things).
Donkey tastes like goat, but is blander and very very tough (donkeys in developing countries lead hard lives)
Horse tastes like a cross between goat and beef, and is also quite bland.
etc, etc

Damn you took this sign to heart [i.imgur.com image 500x260]

Oztemprom: jennies1897: I'm really starting to wonder what horse steak would taste like.

I am so glad I am not the only one.   I wonder, do you cook it like beef, or do you have to hit a chicken temperature?


It cooks exactly like beef. You can cook to pink, rare not recommended. It's flavor profile is sweeter than beef slightly close to venison though not as gamey unless its an pretty old horse. Ground is recommended to well done.

Makes excellent tacos

....I lived in a communal home with migrant and day laborers for a several months. You eat anything that moves when you're at that level of society.
