Brimming with confidence from my epic buffalo burgers from last time, I attempted the same experiment with some ground lamb meat from Whole Foods. Mix with almond flour, onions, and spices, broil on high for six minutes on each side, and enjoy. Sadly for me, the natural lamb flavor really overwhelmed the other seasoning, and it wasn’t particularly palatable. I forced them down with some salsa and avocado, but meh. Turns out it *was* the buffalo meat, and not necessarily just the almond flour, that made my previous burgers awesome. I *did* have a wicked lamb burger at Flip Burger a while back, and that may be more of a tribute to their cooking ability than my taste for lamb, which has unfortunately soured.
My next experiment might (*might*) be to buy a bit of liver and search for palatable ways to cook it. The go-to’s, of course, being to drench it in bacon, bacon fat, cajun seasoning, and onions.
Also, I plan on making this very soon, courtesy of my friend Casey:
Next time: a love letter to Richard Nikoley’s “Free The Animal” book (a STEAL at $3.99!). I think more like a hunter and less like a gatherer. In excited anticipation, I’m fasting today and breaking it tomorrow afternoon.
