You know, the one you have to cook it till you can't find any pink and you probably would have been better off handing her a bag of beef jerky. Lol
Anyway, I asked him if she's ever ate lamb? He said no but her family cooked a goat in the ground once. I said , that's the same thing, right? He disagreed. I'm thinking goat, lamb and sheep are basically the same thing right? Or, am I wrong here?
Wrong SF, way wrong.
Goat is super lean whereas lamb is fatty. Mutton is also fatty but far gamier.
They are worlds apart.
The great thing about lamb/mutton is, it is delicious all the way from rare to well done.
Its a very forgiving meat.
Goat needs far more care.
Titch gave some good pointers, and I also love that chef, what a top bloke also.
