There's no great diif between horse and cow as meat goes.. horse tends to be a bit tougher as they are all muscled up and run and kick/jump everywhere.. horses are nut jobs.

Cows tend to be more sedate and their meat less lean and more tender.

Horse meat is not tougher but more tender, compared to beef, takes shorter cooking times. And the meat of an old horse is more tender than that of a younger horse.

Sounds a bit strange, but that's the way it is!


I must have eaten the toughest horse ever then...

Business week says ".. rates .. horse meat as “reasonably tough," ALSO - some cuts are tougher than others.. marinading them helps.

The good thing is that horses are immune to BSE..
