TIME FOR A TASTE TEST
AS horses are more athletic creatures than cattle, the meat is not as tender but leaner, writes Oliver Astley.
Paul Webb, of ExoticMeats.co.uk, kindly offered me some horse steak to try.
I fried it in butter and onions for a couple of minutes and plated up with roasted vegetables. It was better than several steaks I have been served in restaurants.
The flavour is not as rich as good-quality beef and, while the texture is denser, I didn't need a steak knife to cut it.

In a burger or in mince, it is unlikely many people would be able to tell the difference between horse and beef – the advantage of the former being it is generally cheaper.
Perhaps the unexpected consequence of the horse-meat scandal will be that it is consumed more widely in the UK. Knowingly consumed more widely, that is.
