Thinkfood recipe number 17 is here!
As with almost every other Thinkfood recipe so far, this one includes an ingredient that I have never had: lamb. No matter how it tastes, I’m not sure how I feel about eating lamb. However, I don’t want this post to become about the ethics of eating animals, so I will save that for another time.
This was not a difficult recipe to make. It was much like making hamburgers…….and very similar to my experience making turkey burgers.
And much like, well, burgers of any kind, I’m not sure that I like it.
I had the meat on the skewers to start, but then realized that I made them too thick so I had to flatten them out in order for them to cook evenly. I should also mention that I do not have a food processor, so I had to just chop as finely as I could and then mix everything together by hand.
Ease: A-, there was some chopping and mixing by nothing horrible – and I would imagine it would only get easier if you actually had a food processor.
Taste: B-, like I said before I’m not sure how I feel about eating lamb, but as far as taste goes…..meh. I’m not a huge fan of the ground meat texture, so I didn’t really enjoy it. However, as far as flavors go it was not bad. The onions were a little much though.
Would I make it again? No, probably not. Just not my kinda food. If you like ground meat texture though, this might be something different to try.
Is anyone out there a big fan of onions? I’ve heard of people that eat them like apples! Are there really people out there that love the flavor that much?!?
I don’t mind a slight oniony flavor, but lots of chopped onions in anything just seems unnecessary to me.
In a non-food related note, can I just say WAY TO GO BUCKY!!! The Badgers had an awesome game and beat the No. 1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes!! Woo Hoo!! We sure did show them how to Bucky!! 🙂
