English Meat



meat, in its broadest modern definition, is all animal tissue intended to be used as food. In this context, it not only refers to muscle tissue, but also includes fat or non-muscle organs, including lungs, livers, tongues, skin, brains, marrow, and kidneys. Within the human diet, meat has a more specific meaning. For the most part, it is the flesh, or soft tissue, of any animal, consisting especially of the skeletal muscle and fat covering the bones. However, the word meat is typically used in reference to the flesh of livestock (chickens, pigs, cows, etc.) raised and butchered for human consumption, often to the exclusion of seafood, poultry, game and insects, although this usage may be considered a semantic faux pas.

It may be ground then formed into patties (as burgers or croquettes), loaves, or sausages, or used in loose form (as in "sloppy joe" or Bolognese sauce). Some meats are cured, by smoking, pickling, preserving in salt or brine. Others are marinated and barbecued, or simply boiled, roasted, or fried. It is often spiced or seasoned, as in most sausages. meat dishes are usually described by their source (animal and part of body) and method of preparation.
