The meat dishes, for example, evolved because the Austrians were loth to kill bulls. They felt it wasteful to keep them and feed them while they grew up but did no useful work. Therefore they kept only the cows which were killed when they were old and tough, and so the Austrians have a number of dishes which make use of scraggy meat.
