Would you buy and eat a horse meat steak?
Not sure. I've never tried horse meat No. I could never cook and eat "Mr. Ed" Yes. It's enjoyed in other countries, why not here?

Could be. Though I haven’t eaten at Ikea. Taco Bell? who knows?
I’ve eaten it a bunch of times. Not bad but not exceptional, either.
Some good recipes there, no matter where the meat came from.
Have you ever eaten/seen horse meat? I was served some meat at a relatives house in New Mexico that they called beef but it didn’t look like any beef I have ever seen. I went to the meat market with the relative when he bought it. The meat was very very dark. I called it elk but it was even darker than elk. It tasted OK, a little strong as I recall.
There are plenty of other “meat” animals — cows, chickens, pigs, goats, sheep, etc. along with most wild game.
Horses, dogs and cats are not meat animals — they are partners and loyal companions of humans. We have a covenant with them.
I’ve often derided vegetarians; but, if there were no alternatives to eating the flesh of our animal companions, I’d be a vegetarian.
Would you buy and eat a horse meat steak, again?
Fixed it for ya.

NO! But I do support rounding up democrats.... farming and harvesting them for their organs.
Ate it as a kid, but we were poor folks. I don’t need it, now.
How about some breaded, deep fried mountain oysters? Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!
I said, "Yes, steak!"
Satisfied that I had broken the language barrier and getting something to eat I would be familiar with, I was really looking forward to eating my meat and potatoes.
When I was served dinner, I could hardly wait to bite into my sizzling sirloin sandwich.
After the first bite,I thought it tasted a little gamey and kind of tough. I leaned over to my dining neighbor with a quizical glance and he said with a big grin, "Oui Oui - cheval et pommes de terre1!Horse and potatoes!"
The next day, I bought a French & English translation guide book.
Looks like Armies fed on them when there was no other meat around. I know the Germans did. Why be surprised over it, in other areas of the world they eat dogs and cats. If its red meat, its eaten somewhere.
Go to Belgium and order a hamburger...if it isn’t McDonalds, it’s probably Trigger.
Having spent a HUGE part of my childhood shovelling up after horses, yes — yes I would eat a horse steak. They OWE me.
Huh? Wut? I dunno.

No. I could never cook and eat a Gypsy Vanner, Clydesdale, or Friesian, for example.
61.31% (17,243 votes)
Yes. It’s enjoyed in other countries, like cannibalism.

No not even a tofu horse.
Going through a village in Vietnam I noticed what I thought were deer hind quarters hanging. I casually mentioned that they have small deer here. My buddy said that those were dog hind quarters.
If offered the opportunity to buy a horse meat steak in the supermarket and eat it at home, would you do it?
Thank you for voting!

Could have been elk. Venison is darker than beef.
Ostrich is a LOT like beef as well. Someone could eat that and not know it was not beef.
The Apache did it all the time. They rode their horses into the ground, ate them, and stole more. Just one of the many reasons they were one of the World’s most effective guerrilla forces.
We raised Quarter Horses for 30 years. I don’t think I could carve one up and eat it, but in the 80’s we sold some at auction, knowing they went to slaughter. We now have an old brood mare, and I’d rather auction her than call the meat wagon or bury her. Recycling meat into dogfood doesn’t bother me. Walmart takes all their outdated deli food and turns it into dogfood, why can’t we process our nags and feed our dogs.
I grew up with horses and agree with you.
There are plenty of alternatives to meat protein. In fact it can be argued that it is a much better lifestyle.
Me? I would eat it. I don’t really find a difference. I also would eat a dog or a cat if the opportunity arises.
Have you ever killed a “meat” animal? Up close, not with a gun. I have slaughtered animals by cutting the throat with a large knife. If you can’t do it you certainly should not employ others to do your dirty work.
Poor polling choices. I have never eaten it but I would certainly give it a go.
Like the old saying goes, “if God didn’t want us to eat animals he would not have made them out of meat”.
Does the average, non-horse-owning or non-horse-caring-for person in today’s society have ANY clue as to what drugs horses are given to stay sound, what they are vaccinated with, what is used on their hooves to protect against bacterial and fungal infections in certain areas, what they are given to keep their intestinal tracts healthy or what medications they are dewormed with? Now who is the frigging Einstein that thinks horse slaughter for human consumption - or even Fido consumption - is healthy? Give it to the Europeans or the Japanese, like Mikey, they’ll eat ANYTHING......no thanks =/
“Have you ever killed a meat animal? Up close, not with a gun.”
Just chicken and fish.
Eat? Why not. Zebra is delicious so perhaps horse is as well.
Never! I’ve loved and enjoyed many horses. Would be like eating my dog or cat. So very sad.
i’m sure I did, Bobs Big Boy served it during WW-2 and i ate their hamburgers!
Shortly after my wife’s horse kicked me in the nuts I suggested that if times got really tough we would eat her horse first.
I ate at the Ikea in Round Rock, Texas a few months ago. Perhaps I did have some horse meat in the meat balls.
I’ve eaten rattlesnake, lizard, monkey, and some other things in Korea and the Phillipines that I still can’t be sure of. Buffalo is pretty good but kind of tough. Octopus and squid are rubbery but I may have had a bad “chef” back in the ‘70s.
I’ve also decided that some pets would be good protein sources if the SHTF.
Horse? No problemo, Pablo. Grill me a thoroughbred medium rare and pass the A1.
Ever try Red Kangaroo? I haven’t but I’ve heard it’s tasty and I’m curious.
The last horse I owned was but days away from filling up my freezer and providing a leather hide. Lucky for him a local rancher bought him.
She said that particular burger meant “on horseback”. A fried egg was on top of the meat so that made it an “egg on horseback”, she said. It didn't mean the meat was horse meat.
You know what, I always thought that meat was horse meat no matter what she said.
To my knowledge I’ve never eaten any marsupial.
I’ve had a horse steak, in Europe of course.
If they sold it here I’d be first in line. Good stuff!
I would not KNOWINGLY eat cat or dog, either. But having lived in Japan for 3 years in ‘59 - ‘61 and dined in Japanese restaurants many times, I’m sure I have probably UN-knowingly eaten both.
I told the relative at the time that I didn’t think it was beef and since selling elk or venison is illegal in the US he was shocked. He had bragged to me on the way to the butcher shop that New Mexico beef was better than Texas beef. I never heard anymore about it after that.
“... after mu wife’s horse kicked me in the nuts... we would eat her horse first”.
At which point, your wife kicked you in the nuts. LOL!
