Filet of Filly

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Meat, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 4 1/4 lb filets of horse
  • 4 Slices bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Prepare exactly as for a filet mignon. Wrap outside of filet with uncooked
bacon slice and secure with toothpicks. Broil to taste.

Horse shares no parasites with man, in contrast to pork and beef. The meat
is fine grained, tender and lacks fat. The flavor is superb. If one is not
told, it would be indistinguishable from beef.

Note: As a student at the University of Arizona, I bought whole horse
filets for a very reasonable price. It was US Grade A inspected at that.
In this country there seems to be an aversion to horseflesh. Not so
elsewhere. In my resident state, it is illegal to sell horsemeat for human
consumption. Silly rules.
