the most popular meat eaten in the world is, .....

Yes I was surprised to read that goats meat is eaten world wide,
well iv never eaten goat , or even venison, either for that matter .

so I suppose I must be well behind people more adventurous, than myself, when it come to eating meat,

so unless your a Vegan, what meats have you eaten and will you share your thoughts with us,

 All the usual for me, beef, chicken, lamb,  etc, I have eaten venison,  & pheasant. on occasions, I used to love rabbit.  Tesco shoppers are probably one up from most , they  have eaten horse meat.

I have eaten most meats that are on the 'normal' menus - love venison and some beef - some comes second to marinated cardboard! - not knowingly eaten horse, but I do wonder about a few dishes over the years in France

I ordered crocodile meat from the restaurant last week.
Took ages to get served. Hardly snappy eh ?


Had a nice bit of poodle once. Mind you , I kept chasing sticks for two weeks after. Woof !

I ate horsemeat once . Only realised when Frankie Dettori climbed on my back and tried to ride me round the pub. True story that.
Anybody tried that French sparrow thing when you put a hankie over your head and eat a small bird, bones and all. ?

  The most popular meat eaten in the world is chicken by a very large margin.

I would have said chicken too, although they eat goat in Africa and the middle east don't they ?  Goats are pretty smart and sociable too, I could never eat one.

In far east countries what you order and what you get could be rather different. While in Hong Kong years ago I sure Rats hanging by their tails in butchers shops.

The African goat is almost identical to the sheep and so is the meat.

I've only started to eat 'lamb' regularly since our friends started to keep sheep.  We get one or two whole carcasses a year and butcher them ourselves.  Ideally was will have older animals as mutton, though more often its hogget that we use.
