    started a topic Camel meat

    Camel meat

    A few years ago I was often served somewhat tough meat in a Tunisian restaurant and we concluded that it probably was camel meat. We never asked though. It tasted different from beef or soft pork meat, which probably would not have been served in that country anyway. The meat was more coarse.

    My question concerns the use of camel meat. Is it commonly used and mainly in what countries?

    Salaam Alaikum,

    I had a camel meat kofta while I was in transit in Eqypt a while back . Next day I had the most painful stomach-ache in my life
    whilst flying back to London.

    Guess its an acquired taste....

    Camel meat is permissible but I think it's generally perceived as a somewhat inferior form of meat (very dry I think).
    Most Muslims prefer goat, lamb, beef and white meats.
    Camel milk is used however.
    But as one of the brothers/sisters has already said, the camel's value lies in other uses e.g transportation primarily.
    Of course, camel meat is obviously superior to pork, horses etc.

    StickyPeas, yes, they are fat and therefore excellent sources of energy. I try to avoid eating too much fat and camel meat is not part of my diet.

    Probably. Aren't they a source for reserve nourishment also?

    I just saw a TV documentary, where a Danish reporter was visiting a market place in Oman. A young bloke bought a young living camel and said he's going to eat it in a couple of days' time. Why should there be anything wrong with camel meat? We just don't eat it daily.

    Charlesl, my meat in that Tunisian restaurant may have been goat meet, too. But I suppose goat meat is a bit like lamb meat and they didn't taste the same at all.

    A few days ago I realized that horse meat is commonly used in salami, which is certainly unpleasant news to all horse lovers.

    No one eats camel here that I know....

    Hi Bilal,

    This is mainly a beef and lamb country! Pork is popular with some as well. Anything else is pretty much on the fringe. Kangaroo eaters are rare among the general population, although the indigenous Aboriginal people still eat them often. Fish is getting more popular now due to the health benefits. Which is why fish prices have doubled in the last few years.

    I think it'll be a long while before camel meat catches on here. We have plenty of water buffalo up north that they should look at exporting as well. Now that I will eat, if they ever sell it down here. Had some when living in south-east asia and it is good tucker.

    Re: Goat?

    You do not eat camels’ meat in Australia?
    Of course we can eat goat, sheep and rabbit meat. In Muslims countries, they allowed to eat everything eating glass from mammals except the donkeys.
    In my region, we not familiar with horses and camels meat.

    Was it possibly goat meat? I'm not aware that Tunisians are big on camel meat. Goat's are pretty popular food in much of the region though. Cooked right, it's not bad at all. In fact, I've had some a few times that were really great.

    And yes, we'd be happy to send more camels to anyone that wants them. Rabbits too....
