I just had horse meat for the first time and found it rather chewy. When asked what I thought of it, I said I found it a bit chewy. I then got a new portion, which was just as chewy. Is this simply how it is supposed to be? The waiter suggested as much, but I am skeptical.

    It’s a bit like asking if beef should be chewy. What cut was it, how was it cooked, for how long… If you flash fry shin, sure, similarly if you fry a sirloin for 15 mins… – Tetsujin Oct 12 '19 at 20:55
  • @Tetsujin, I don't know. but, as I said, the waiter implied that this is just how horse meat in general is. – Toothrot Oct 12 '19 at 21:07

  • It wouldn't be surprising since horses tend to get around a lot more than cows do. – user50726 Oct 13 '19 at 22:42

Depends on the horse meat. The Japanese make horse meat sashimi, which as you might expect is quite tender.
