domestic lamb

I went to the butcher's earlier on today, thinking "I'll get some lamb, I fancy making a lamb curry". So I ordered a pound of "stewing lamb" that I saw was cheaper than the "stewing steak".

What I actually ended up with was three slices of what seemed to be lamb spine with a little bit of meat around it. I have hacked away all of the usable meat and ended up with a fairly poor handful; not much more is going to be extracted without actual sandblasting.

The bone and remaining meat have now gone in a pot with water, bay leaves, half an onion, some wine, some garlic and chilli and a few random herbs, to simmer away and produce... christ, I don't know. Stock? Broth? Soup? Some sort of liquidish lamb-related thing. But let this be a lesson. Lambs, they may look all cute and fluffy but chop them up and they're useless.

Add some noodles or some kinda pasta to your broth (or potatoes if you like) and call it soup.

Parsed as "sewing steak" for some reason, which produced a very strange image.

Lamb liver is nice though, and these days I can eat it and feel virtuous rather than just being a tightwad. Takes me back to being a student, although actually I think my disposable income was higher then.
