One argument I simply don't understand is how it is ok for a meat eater to eat beef, pork and chicken but not horses. If you make the decision to eat meat then surely, welfare issues aside, it shouldn't matter what meat you eat.

So it turns out horse tastes like beef


How do you deduce that? My (admittedly very limited) experience of eating ready made frozen meals would suggest that they don't tend to taste of anything, so even if it had contained beef, I doubt you'd have been able to tell. :lol:

To me, the issue is that a foreign foodstuff has got into hte food chain, rather than what it is. If it's supposed to be beef, it should be beef. Horse I'd have no objection to eating, but through choice and knowledge of what it is, not because someone somewhere is trying to save a few bob without telling me.

Quite.

So it seems that horsemeat tastes as good as anything else and is cheap.

Will be looking out for more of it.

My wife has eaten horse in France, and said it was quite nice. She won't let me cook hers though so I can try it. :rolleyes: :D

Don't think that's the actual point Sev. If it says Beef Lasagne on it, it shouldn't be 100% Horse! :o

The concern is that, as this horse meat has been introduced illicitly into various suppliers' product, there's no quality/safety guarantee. Because of that, I'd regard with even more suspicion than I would the meat on offer at a dodgy kebab shop.

I'd guess that eating horse that has been raised under guaranteed food-standard conditions, as they do in France, poses little or no problem for a lot of people.

It's nice to know what you are eating. I don't have a problem with horse meat but if it had been dog meat that would be different. Yeah I know it's not logical.


I do appreciate about the labelling and lack of honesty. I really do. But the outrage seems to be off the scale for just that.

At least Pot Noodle beef is open that it's suitable for vegetarians.

My local butcher sells Kangeroo burgers and steaks, I was looking forward to getting some next week when my GF goes away, just so we can claim to have given the Kangeroos a good roasting, but after the drug scandle that has his Australia this week, I think I'll stick with Findus Lasagne

Now, if anyone can point me in the direction of a UK supplier of moose meat, that'd be extremely fine and dandy!

I can think of people I know who won't give a toss about this news. As long as the price is low, that will do for them. Same with dodgy takeaways.

Should have thought to search 'elk' as well as 'moose'. I once had some moose salami that was just unbelievably tasty.

Someone once found a 'mouse' in their Chinese takeaway near me if that's any use?

it's a labelling thing. If you don't say that there is horse in it then you are offside.

Also if horses aren't bred or slaughtered for human consumption there are health issues-eg medications in the bloodstream, hygiene in the abbattoir etc.

It shows up in a few farm shops, I can't quite remember where I got mine from, it was only a couple of frozen steak. Oo wait. Whichever Lidl or Aldi is on Halifax Rd in Bradford!
