And since it is present in the diet of sportsmen and growing boys, we can consider it in all respects a noble and precious food for our health.

Here then we come into play, with many good ideas and some guidelines to approach a first consumption.

But before focusing on the perfect recipes to learn about and enhance horse meat, let's review the basic rules to enjoy it to the fullest.

1 – Watch out for cooking

As we said before, we are dealing with a very lean meat that requires cooking that does not dry it. The ideal is therefore to opt for a typical consumption blood steak or even raw (it is very appreciated as a base for jokes, carpaccio and tartare). If you want to focus on longer cooking, on the other hand, it is preferable to rely on wet preparations such as stews and rolls with sauce.

2- Fillet inspiration

To understand how to treat horse meat, we can refer to cooking which is reserved for valuable and delicate parts such as beef fillet. The slice of horse meat in question will need to be two to three inches thick and put in the oven at 180 ° C for 5 minutes per side. We will then pass it in a pan with a knob of butter to finish cooking and give flavor, enriching to taste with sage leaves.

3- Lean, but not too much

Horsemeat is practically devoid of fatty parts, the same that usually melt in a pan avoiding burning. So if we love the scalped and greedy effect of certain preparations, a small amount of fat will have to be added. Yes in butter, to which to combine perhaps whole grains of pepper, but it is oil is also perfect with which we will continue to wet our meat during cooking, recovering it from the corners of the tilted pan.
