You won't see me coming....
I went to Sooty's BBQ and had a Sweep Steak
Leg-iron may prefer it smoked.Dog is another acquired taste but either flesh should slip down nicely with a bottle of room temperature blood, Julia.
We had Ostrich on saturday night.What does it taste like? Beef. Not steak mind, more like the sunday roast your mum used to do that just fell apart to the touch.With a mushroom and mustard and shallot sauce and veg.Yum!
Think I read they are doing springbok as well?If it tastes nice and the price is right, I would...
I had reindeer meat in Sweden many years ago, it was bloody delicious.
Springbok is good, blesbok is better but the best is still kudu. Ostrich is best for making biltong as there's no fat in it. @MTG, dog, or 'heung yuk' as the Cantonese call it (fragrant meat) is a winter delicacy, like snake and chrysanthemum soup. Both are very tasty.I've had the reindeer, is great if you lace it with lardons of smoked bacon, otherwise it can be a bit dry; don't try to cook it so that it's grey all the way through, it should be medium-rare. Nice with mushrooms sautéed in butter!
"With a mushroom and mustard and shallot sauce and veg." Yum! indeed :)"Think I read they are doing springbok as well?" Yup, plus venison steaks (and diced venison) plus a pack of four quail and a whole pheasant."Springbok is good, blesbok is better but the best is still kudu." They aren't that adventurous. Yet! :)
a pack of four quail and a whole pheasant.Pheasant's nice, but quail..? It's like eating undernourished Sparrows!
RAB, could you please let us know where you got the ostrich?I used to buy the steaks from Aldi, but they don't seem to sell them anymore.It's really nice, tender, tasty, and non-fattening.Monty
@ selsey.steve.I do like animals, Steve. Were it not for a ginger allergy I might enjoy cats as much as some Northern Australians who put them on the menu. 'Feral cats roasting on an open fire' is quite a popular Christmas tribute, down under.
Had reindeer burgers in Norway many years ago and they were excellent. But's it's only a form of venison really so not that exotic. More unusual perhaps, I did have bear once in the old Yugoslavia...
