I make my own now Cornish, steak mince, garlic, chilli, onions, seasoning. Tastes loads better than the crap you buy in supermarkets.

IThe issue around the burger farce is deception. I can honestly say that I hardly ever eat a burger, last was 2011 I reckon, but when I do I expect it to be beef, not any old cr@p the manufacturer feels like putting in it.
I would like to see all the supermarkets that deceived the public prosecuted & fined heavily. It is the vendor's responsibility to ensure the products they supply are what they state they are.
To me it is exactly the same as buying a GD CD only to find that a third of the tracks were Neil Young - just because I like both would not make it acceptable to me.

Evening Neph, how you doing? Hope your brother is recovering alright! I'm with Spacepig on the horse eating debate, if it tastes nice eat it. I heard that some beefburgers that were being fed to some muslim prisoners (?), contained pork. This is more of a scandal than a bit of horse meat as it goes against their religion. I remember when I was a kid, my German relatives visited us and we went to London for the day. At around lunchtime we bought some burgers from a mobile stand. I'm no beef expert but it was most definitely not beef. The meat was so bad in taste and texture that we threw the whole lot away, they were foul!

Are Ireland and mainland UK not two of the few places that horse is not on the menu in Europe?

Allinghams, a meat processor from many years ago, based near the border, allegedly used to use subtle and effective ways of reintroducing putrified meat back into the food chain. An early, but unpopular, form of recycling I suppose. They were rumoured to have kept the carcasses in a pit in the ground, thereby also saving on carbon emissions due to the electricity generation required to run freezers.

Exactly my point Neph - never done anyone any harm. In my local market you can get near enough any dead animal you want: pig, sheep, cow, goat, deer (of various varieties), alligator, buffalo, bison, ostrich, but you can't get a horse steak! Why not? Where do all the dead horses go to, there surely isn't that much of a demand for glue? And, if they are used solely for pet food, then why? Surely a prime horse steak would be better than the innards of a sheep or a pig's feet (and yep, you can get them here too)?
Maybe there is a reason for this, but I can't think of one.

Can I rant in here? I can - oh good, here goes:

So, what I want to know is, what's the big deal about with Tesco burgers? OK so, they may have been slightly mislabelled, can't be helped but, really??? I mean, I have eaten Tesco burgers for years, ain't never done me any harm and they are tasty enough. When all this kerfuffle started about them I still had some in the freezer, no way were they getting chucked out, scoffed them all up. And now, well you can't get them any more, I shoulda kept them for a few years then sold them off as antiques.
So they got bits of horse in them, so what? What's the difference between eating horse and eating pig or cow or sheep or goat or whatever? Half the time you don't have a clue what you are munching anyway, ever asked a pie shop or a sandwich counter if they can tell you exactly what is in their food? Thought not. And, most of us have done a bit of travelling, how do you know for sure what you are eating in Ibiza or Tenerife or Cairo? Doesn't bother you there, why should it here?
Bring back Tesco burgers says I, and if they have to change the label to say 'May contain Dobbin' then so be it.

shurely a more verminous name would be more suitable ? suggest cockroaches. they tend to inhabit the lowest, filthiest places.
