There are only two places where this piece of meat has gone.
It is either your stomach or your lungs.
Had it been your lungs,you would have been coughing violently.
The cause of some feeling in your throat seems to be due to scraping of mucosal lining of your throat
due to some hard portion of meat or due to some small portion of bone in the meat piece.
There is nothing to worry.
This throat feeling shall go away of its very soon and so nothing is to be done.
