Britain's Most Disgusting Food: Meat

Last edited Fri May 15, 2015, 01:22 AM - Edit history (1)

The same things are happening here in the US, only we call MRM "pink slime."

Kinda makes you want to do your own cooking, huh?

1. I recently read Margaret Atwood's dystopian series Year of the Flood and

there was a "hamburger" restaurant called Secret Burger. THey served up mystery meat patties and their motto was "Because everyone loves a secret!"

2. As a child, I read a lot of British books

Early 20th-century British children's books featured a lot of mutton. I always wondered what it would taste like. In college I finally got to try it. Blech!

3. Even lamb goes through me like a wildcat, backwards

so I have to pass up the Navajo tacos that everybody else thinks are the best things in the world because they're likely to be made with mutton.

My deepest admiration goes to anyone who can make mutton taste that good.

12. Mine is killer on the grill

 

I do a shoulder chop black and bleu, and it is amazing enough that lamb haters can't tell the difference between it and beef!

15. I'm sure it would be lovely going down

Not so much overnight as it fights its way through.

Not liking it isn't the problem. Not tolerating it is.

4. Mutton or lamb -- sorry, both make me absulutely puke. I can't even explain its horrendous

flavor. Just awful. And I am not a fussy eater, either.

13. You've had the wrong lamb

 

I don't know what cut you cooked or how it was prepared, but it easily can taste like the finest cut of beef with the right chop. Now if you don't like beef that much, either, I can see why it would offend the taste buds.

10. I like leg of lamb but you have to cut out the three pyramids of fat and gland

or the whole thing has an off taste. I really suspect this is the difference because I have had roast lamb in commercial settings where I suspect that they did not cut the glands out and I have made it myself and removed all 3 glands and as much of the fat as possible. Roasting on a rack also helps get more fat away from the meat.

Lamb fat, unlike duck and chicken for example, has an unpleasant taste so things like lamb burgers where it is all ground together depend heavily on how fresh the lamb is. To me it is also a mistake to roast other things in the pan with leg of lamb like potatoes or even heads of garlic because of the fat.

At 7:40 in this video he shows the first pyramid:

14. Absolutely right

 

there are some aromatic glands that give off an ...odd... taste which is absolutely acquired. For shoulder cuts, though, that taste doesn't come through, particularly if cooked correctly.

11. I'll be candid

 

I don't understand the lamb hate.

It is phenomenally delicious when cooked correctly for whatever cut you are using. Shoulder done rare is like a buttery filet mignon (even better done black and bleu since it's thinner than a filet and you can crank the heat on the grill sky high to get the blackening while the inside remains ruby red).

Gyros? Load me up with lamb and/or mutton. I like the rich taste.

5. Count me as another who is not at all fond of lamb.

 

Growing up my mother cooked leg of lamb once a year, at Easter. Maybe that's why I never developed a taste for it.

I never ever cooked it. Never. Ever. When my younger son was maybe seven years old, we were at a restaurant, and he wanted to order the lamb chops. We told him, Go for it, as my husband and I were prepared for him to find them awful. We'd have done a fast hamburger for him in that case. Somewhat to our surprise, he loved them. Nice.

6. Oh, I can get it down

and if it's well prepared, it's very enjoyable.

My guts don't like it and I'll spend the next 2 days in the bathroom, evacuating I've eaten over the past six months.

7. Then why bother?

 

If you really and truly love the taste of lamb, maybe it's worth it. Me, I do not like the taste of lamb. Yuck. Awful.

8. Sometimes it's awkward not to eat what's put in front of you

My first trip out to a reservation feast was like that.

I've needed to eat something that I know will have a bad effect. Lucky me.
