There is a popular misconception among Hindus that jhatka meat is fit for consumption (apparently it is quick death for the animal). While it maybe true in Sikhism, I have not come across anything from hindu scriptures to support it.

Now Manusmriti and Mahabharata say that sanctified is pure

https://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m13/m13b080.htm

Mann himself has said that meat which is sanctified with mantras and properly dedicated, according to the ordinances of the Vedas, in rites performed in honour of the Pitris, is pure.

Can someone provide links to these mantras ? Most helpful if they can be categorized - before eating, before cooking, before eating etc.

P.S. - by meat i am not referring to beef. I am referring to poultry, goat etc

    However Devi Bhagavata Purana states that even eating sanctified meat for tongue satiation amounts to sin. Brahmavaivarta Purana identifies buffalo, sheep & goat as the only legitimate sources of meat fit for human consumption.

    The mantras given in scriptures are for purifying meat when meat is being used for some rituals not for personal consumption ....

    Just purifying the meat/food is not enough .. it has to be duly sacrificed/dedicated to some deity .. these are all part of rituals and can't be done without learning all the details from Guru .. even the quote in Q says "sanctified with mantras and properly dedicated" .. so it has to be sanctified and dedicated not just sanctified.
