A horse is a noble beast. They were domesticated some 4-5 thousand years ago and have served men faithfully ever since. A man's horse was his best friend in the cavalry. However, having said that, times have changed and there is a tremendous meat shortage nowadays. Bacon is becoming scarce and mad cow has put a lot of folks off beef. You can't eat fish every day, either and buffalo is too damned expensive for the average meat lover. So let's give it a try, I say. Let's not go hog wild, so to speak, but ease it into the markets and gauge the response. You have to cook it properly too to keep it tender and moist. I don't want a horse burger for lunch every day but I get tired of beef stroganoff made with cheap cuts.

That was a good response I must say. What about since you say there is a meat shortage and all drought in the mid-west states can't feed their cattle. The USDA says you can can only buy horse meat with your food purchase and not other red meats. Chicken turkeys fish cheese is still a ok. GD I get pissed when I got to the store and people whip out their lone star cards and buy real expensive meats and not shop for bargins and pay for beer and wine with cash.

I hate when people whip it out at the supermarket too, especially when it's a huge ribeye or filet that they're packing. But don't be so quick to judge - lot's of recipes call for beer and wine with the meat because it tenderizes the fat and adds body and flavor, such as in a stew. Plus I add a shot of cognac to my cream sauces to give it fullness. I don't give a good, sweet, you-know-what about the USDA since they changed the labeling on Angus beef and screwed the cattleman. They butchered that deal something fierce.

Well thanks for the info the next time I get some chuck steak I will dump or soak it in some MD 20/20 wine or Steel Reserve beer before frying it up and add some sour cream sauce and blue bonnet or imperal fake butter.

Horses were eaten by the plains tribes and some explorers when the horse became seriously lame or had a broken leg. Until the 90s horse were slaughtered here and the meat was sold overseas and to dog food outlets.

The meat is very lean and cooks well. The fat content however is real low and the meat has to be cooked in the oven or in a pot to make sure the meat does not lose all it's moisture. Potatoes, Carrots, celery, bell peppers and onions with a pinch of chile flakes. Cook at 350 fr 2 1/2 hours then check the meat to make sure you have the right doneness.

Do you serve it over noodles or with any sort of gravy or sauce? I have a new friend who's from overseas and he wants me to cook him some horse meat. I'm not sure how he came by it.

It's a GD sin to waste a good meat. As a devout Catholic, I get damned tired of fish and the like. So when Lent is over, I high tail it to the supermarket and stock up on every piece of meat I can find. Hell, I'd eat a donkey after having so much fish. For us to pass by horses is one hell of a slight and a waste of their tasty flesh.

That sounds fishy, like your viejas panocha! Women her age need to clean their beavers extra well or run the risk of smelling like your wife.

I'm not a theologian but only one hell of a devout, religious Catholic so I don't know if the Pope banned shellfish or not. But I try to stick between the lines and not rock the boat. I eat my fish without arguing or complaining, sometimes drowning the damn filet in tartar sauce. The Donners were sick in my book. No one should eat another human being, no matter how the organs or meat is prepared.

You need to talk to the dogs then. I've got enough headaches with the plastic bag shortage and a shipment of meat that was expired. I don't have time to patrol my flower beds. And yes, they are quite precious. I have some beautiful, hi-res, glossy photos of them.

I hate plastic GD bags and glass bottle they need to put a 50 cent deposit on each and every one of them. Hey I live over on the westside as I'am typing this I see 12 of them stuck on the catus and shrubs and blowing around outside my window at this moment. send the meat back to the supplier or don't do business with him anymore you silly goose. For some reason I just can't handle the thought of eating Mister ED or Lassie. To each his own
