Never had Bambi... I should try it once! I don't really care for horse meat, I prefer beef.

A nice sirloin cut or rump roast of deer, marinated in cheap red wine, with beef fat threaded through it with a larding needle, and slivers of garlic stuck into slits around the sides, roasted in a hot oven with new potatoes and onion halves... Just a little bit of Heaven.

EDIT: ...especially if you pour some Balsamic Vinegar over the onions when they are almost done cooking!

Venison's quite popular these days, because it's considerably lower in fat than beef.

Ever notice just how much Buffalo wings taste like chicken?

But not Buffalo chips...

Presumably you're talking about the North American bison when you say "buffalo", rather than the "genuine" African buffalo? They're both basically wild cows - does it taste any different to any other beef?

Asian water buffalo isn't too bad tasting, but hard to chew... REALLY hard to chew. Even ground up into hamburger it's hard to chew...

On the other hand, I use buffalo shin bone to make guitar bridge saddles. Great tone and sustain as the bone is almost as dense as ivory.

I found Bison to be similar to beef in taste when I was in Denver for a bit. Certainly more similar than either is to lamb or mutton. But more different than the different beef breeds are to each other.

Thanks. The reason I asked is that I've had "wild boar", and it tasted exactly the same as any other pork to me .

For a birthday dinner party at a smart restaurant, we explained that we didn't want any pork on the menu. The first sample menu they produced for us had some finely sliced wild boar as part of the starter.....

I think that wild boar and domestic pigs are a lot more closely related than bison and cattle.

Your second point, I 1000% agree with. If you sell cow meat, it should consists of 100% cow. But I cannot find any thing about your first point. Only that it has a taboo and is banned by the Roman Catholic church (to stop pagan practices). I even found a piece that Gordon Ramsay serves horse meat in his restaurants (or at least, that was in 2007, no idea if he still does...)
What is cow meat? Are you talking about female bovines?

All cows are not bovines, nor are all bovines cows.

The term is, however, popularly used to mean that. If you say to someone, "oh look, there's a cow in that field!", then a female bovine is what they are going to expect to see.

On the other hand, if your in Hawaii, it depends on which direction your facing. If it's mauka, it probably a bovine, but if your facing makai, it's probably a whale.

I still have a suspicion that people are not going to expect to see a whale in a field.
