RE: Horseburger

In Ireland, we have an expression "Horse it into ya Cynthia" (from a song)......I'm not sure this is what they had in mind. Personally, I blame the French!!

RE: Horseburger

They should just label it correctly. In Sweden "hamburgerkött" (hamburger meat), is a type of smoked horse meat sold for making sandwiches. Quite tasty.

RE: Horseburger

Holidaying in the Netherlands with the family, my brother in law bought some tomato soup for his difficult to feed children. Speaking a bit of food Dutch, I was forced to point out that not only did the soup contain meat balls, the meat balls were a combination of pig & horse. Its not just the French...

RE: Horseburger

Horse meat was probably the healthiest ingredient in them.

Clearly nonsense, there's no way a Tesco Everyday Value burger has 29% meat in it...

I would like to eat horse. My wife and I have a voucher for a Mongolian restaurant where we will be able to eat various exotic animals.

I've eaten horse sashimi, from a butcher in Japan the walls of whose shop were decorated with pictures of nags racing and showjumping, and jolly tasty it was too.
