Of course, I'm wanting to know which of the two you select.

I'm partial to a bit of Partridge myself, served with garlic mash and red cabbage.

I voted cow... but I don't think I've ever eaten sheep. Same with goat.

Pig is my favorite meat by miles, although as I get older, the saltiness of preserved pig products is buggin' me more.

Ah, excellent, a payoff.

Now this I find quite strange. I cannot imagine having made it to adulthood without eating sheep.

Is this common where you live? Are sheep a rarity there, or simply shunned?

The supermarkets sell lamb chops, etc., but I don't recall seeing people eat it. There are online stats for US meat consumption, if you can believe them. One: "In the early 1960s the average person in the U.S. ate about 4.5 pounds of lamb in a year. That has dropped to less than a pound in 2011." That's compared to ~55 lbs beef, ~50 lbs pork, ~90 lbs chicken as per http://www.nationalchickencouncil.org/about-the-industry/sta....

My preference would be venison. I am not a hunter, but my brother-in-law has this strange fascination with spending way too much time is a tree stand, bow in hand, caught up in ten-point fever. I can always count on at least one or two decent backstraps to end up in my freezer every fall. Lean venison cooks very quickly and the backstrap is the most tender, lean cut of venison you can find. Venison sausage is a treat, too.

Insert that mind blown gif here.

I guess then that the US doesn't really farm sheep, unless the vast majority is exported.

Sheep is not often available in U.S. Stores. The only way I get any cuts of it is at farmers markets and even then the cuts can be quit limited. I know one farmer that sells Gyro, snack sticks and chops beyond that nothing. while the one I work for refuses to make gyro but sells four types of brats and Roasts, chops Ribs steaks and Organs. it scares some Americans when you tell them I don;t have a heart in my body but there is one in my cooler.

I voted sheep but that is with the caveat that we are talking Lamb, not mutton*.

We do really enjoy lamb. But it is one of the most expensive meats to buy here in the USA unless you live in a area with a higher middle eastern population.

In Detroit it would occasionally go down to under $4 a pound. Here in Washington State we are thrilled and stock up whenever any of it gets below $6 a pound. Lamp chops tend to run closer to $10-15 a pound when not on a good sale.

So we only have lamb maybe 6-7 times a year as a special treat. We mostly eat chicken, beef and pork.

Lamb is cheapest here around Easter... as it is a traditional spring holiday choice in some ethnic traditions. We tend to buy a lot then and freeze some for lamb stews later.

I have some fantastic lamb recipes. More than I can afford to make in any one year sadly.


* Note I have never actually had mutton, though I hear it tastes different from lamb. It isn't sold here in a typical grocery store at all.

I never had lamb until I was dating my hubby. My Dad had mutton when he was a kid and hated it, so Mom never cooked any lamb at all. I was apprehensive about trying myself from listening to my Dad, but my husband got me to try it at a Greek restaurant: leg of lamb studded with lots of garlic. I was surprised and happy to find out how good it could be.

My husband is 1/4 Lebanese, so he grew up having kibbeh nayeh and stuffed cabbage with lamb and leg of lamb.

I keep my eye out for sales on lamb so we have it at least once a month if not more.

"Kibbeh nayeh is made of minced raw lamb or beef, combined with bulgur, pureed onion and a mix of spices that partly depends on the cook. (My family's spice mix: cinnamon, salt, pepper). All of the ingredients are kneaded together with a sprinkling of ice water, and then eaten — with olive oil, a scattering of chopped sweet onion, bundled in flatbread — immediately. Raw."

...and people I know get all grossed out when I have Haggis, at least it's cooked.

Yeah, I can't do the raw version myself, but when that same mixture is cooked, it's so yummy!
