Did I write about this before?

I don't remember. Maybe I have.

It's about lamb. About how to take away the gamey taste of the meat.

I used to not like lamb. You can't pay me enough to taste venison, elk, and whatever else meat out there. I don't like gamey taste of certain meat.

The thing is, my husband LOOOOOVES lamb. And mutton. Except I can't find mutton here. Me, on the other hand, used to not like the after taste of lamb. I felt like there was a coating of lamb fat wrapping around my tongue every time I took a bite of his lamb dish.

Then, a couple of months ago, I decided to give it a try. We went to an Indian restaurant and the waitress accidentally ordered a lamb biryani for me. I wasn't going to hassle her about it so I gave it a try. What the heck? No gamey taste to the lamb. I decided to try my husband's dish; lamb rogan josh. No gamey taste either.

I was curious. Maybe if I could learn to take that awful taste off, I could learn to like lamb.

I googled and googled "how to remove gamey taste on meat".

It was really simple. I just needed to soak the meat in buttermilk, yogurt or if I don't have these two, plain milk would do. They said to soak them for a few hours. I have been doing it overnight. Plus, if I soak them in buttermilk, the milk will tenderized the meat.

If you toss a lamb chop to me, I'll run away. But if you give me an Indian dish of lamb, I'll take it.

I have lamb rogan josh simmering on the stove as I type this entry.
