I grind mustard, add smoked paprika and nuts plus whatever else I feel like grinding (common things include coriander, fenugreek) and dredge the lamb in that. So good, done on a griddle to medium rare.
Never thought of paprika, mustard, and nuts...might try that with the ground lamb. Ever use allspice? I used to add a little of that to flavor ground beef.
Haven't tried allspice. For ground lamb I go with the sweet spices though, garam masala if I can get it.
We had a mustard/pumpkin seed rack of lamb at a nice restaurant and I've been doing variations ever since. One of the best things I've ever eaten.
I'm just not that fond of sweet with meat...except the spiced pear glaze I sometimes use with ham.
I was thinking crushed pine nuts with the mustard, maybe.
Today's curry expanded again, another big can of diced tomatoes, then sauteed onion, garlic, celery, carrots, more curry paste. In its first incarnation, I'd also used a small can of tomatoes & green chilis. The family was happy with it.
to fabricate a carcass with a really good meat saw
having this mental picture of cutting up and reassembling to make a more attractive carcass...
Some years ago, when we were approaching our first intentional episode (not counting poor Nameless Heifer, who broke her leg in a hole), my husband looked up "butchery" and discovered that the professional term for disassembly was fabrication. Apparently because the butcher was creating, or fabricating, the cuts of meat seen in stores--or that's what we guessed.
So we use the term both out of respect for the very real skill of professionals who do this for a living and from the awareness that this has to be the most unusual "fabrication" around.
I knew if I looked up the word, it would mean that in one of its definitions, because I know you wouldnt be abusing words.
I didn't check to see if it was in the dictionary with that meaning--lots of occupational word uses take a long time to come to the attention of people outside that occupation.
