Yeah, it's a common thing in Europe and elsewhere. And is tasty too.
In US you eat just first class tenderloin steaks?

[rolleyes]

Personally, I don't eat red meat all that often.

As far as what we eat in the U.S., I know we don't eat horsemeat and label it beef, then hypocritically complain about evil Americans imposing genetically-modified food on civilized people. :-P

(Seriously, I was watching a news broadcast from Belgium about a month ago - I get TV5 Monde - and there was a protest in Brussels about EU/US free trade and some leader of the farmers' union complaining about how "Americans don't follow the same standards as us...." Please. She's full of offal. And I for one was glad during the horsemeat scandal that we don't import European beef.)

More seriously, we may, culturally, be more squeamish than you. I still remember sausages I was served in France that I found unappetizing because it was too obvious what was in them. (What's this - a blood vessel?!) We process them more heavily. But there is an old-time Philadelphia delicacy called scrapple. Which I've eaten maybe once. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrapple

Horse meat scandal? Scandal was just for UK and maybe some other countries. Mostly that was just overblown news by sensationalistic media (even here despite horse meat here is nothing uncommon).

There were headlines in France and Belgium for a month or more. And a recurrence a couple of months ago where horses that had been used for medical testing and hence been declared unfit for human consumption got into the food chain (in France) notwithstanding.

At least it wasn't genetically-modified horse meat.

I've just glanced at Wikipedia's articles (in English) on the "2013 meat adulteration scandal," which led to an article on food taboos, where there are actual entries on horsemeat (it's taboo in most of the Balkans but not Slovenia, it says) and "offal."

Truth be told, I've never (knowingly) eaten horsemeat, but never gave any thought to why until those headlines from Europe started last year. We just don't eat it.

I guess the scandal was not regarding the horsemeat per se, but the fact it wasn't written in the ingredients.

EDIT: Is rabbit meat eaten in the USA?

That's what seemed most serious to me. Forgetting about the cultural taboos - even if it's acceptable in a given country to eat X, the package should say it's X, not Y, and I'd think everyone could agree on that....

(BTW, Wiki tells me this started a year ago today, at least the public aspect of this....)

Horse meat is taboo in Slovenia to some extent, but many people eat it. I don't eat it often.

Once I ordered something with goose meat in a restaurant here. After a while the waiter returned and said: we've run out of geese, so I brought you a bear. It was delicious.

That looks and sounds like run of the mill meatloaf. Which is tremendous if done right. Offal rules too!

It wasn't just that it was horsemeat (lovely btw) but also that it was unregulated horsemeat. The tabloids in Britatin were more worried about the state of the health of the horses and whether they'd been beefed sic up with hormones or any other treatment.

Any way, it was the gyppos in Romania what did it mister, honest!

Horsemeat was blended and sold across Europe by large West European concerns, which was bought from Romania as a raw product. Moreover, there is nothing wrong with killing and eating horses anywhere else, except of the UK. It's just the same butcher's job as with cows or lambs.
