As far as I know I haven't tried horse yet. It's generally considered pretty taboo here. The last time I really had the opportunity was in France when I was 12, and back then I was still very picky about what I'd eat. I'd like to though, as soon as I find a butcher who sells it at a reasonable price.


Growing up Caucasian in the US, I was never introduced to many things that I've found to be delicious. Took me a trip across the ocean, but my palate, as well as what I consider food, has changed forever. I just wish I could convince my friends and family to adopt the same feelings towards foods that are taboo in the US.

They serve horse, pigeon, dog, ect in many countries. You just have to get out there.

Good luck and good eating!

They should have just relabelled the burgers as "Meat Burgers", it shouldn't be that hard for Home Brand products, in Tesco's case for fresh produce I believe it's just a sticker. Sell it at a marked down price, it should do well... I mean it, most of us here are broke enough that as long as it tastes okay and is safe we wouldn't care, it's not like its the Japanese excrement stake (see http://www.dailytech.com/Japanese+Make+Delicious+Nourishing+Steaks+From+Human+Feces/article21932.htm.)


They call them hamburgers, but there is no ham in our burgers. It's mostly beef and occasionally turkey or tofu.
Nobody is complaining about that false advertising.

Isn't the term hamburger derived from Hamburg, not because they originally put ham in it.

It only bothers me that it was a 'secret'..... I don't like being lied to about what I'm eating.
That said, I don't care that it's horse meat. Hell, why not just make an entire burger of horse? Sell horseburgers!

I have a nice rare horse steak once a week to treat myself. Excellent source of protein, iron, B6, B12, etc...

Customers should be thanking the suppliers for that nutritional premium.

Vitamin pills are cheaper.

I don't care if I ate horse.
Those burgers are so cheap that I always assumed there was something in them so horse meat is hardly a worst case scenario.

You're thinking of the creation invented by Otto Kuase, who just made a beef patty and topped it with an egg. The hamburger was confused with his creation, because it had a patty in it. Thus it was referred to as a hamburger, without actually having been invited in hamburg.

But you're correct as for the name having nothing to do with ham. I was using it to make a joke.

Thanks for allowing me to make use of the many random and uselss facts residing within my noggin.

I think it's funny.

Probably because i don't really care.

Eating horse is no big deal anyway. I don't understand the over reaction.

I would imagine eating lamb to be more horrific with a Christian context, given that Christ is usually represented as 'Agnus Dei' in religious art.
