Medieval Roasted Meat


This is NOT something you want to eat with finesse and elegance in elite company. This is meat that needs both your hands and a willingness to get some on your face as well.

Take a lamb or goat backstrap and cut thru to expose the bones. But don’t make it into small pieces. We want it whole. Now rub some turmeric, red chilly powder, ginger garlic paste and oil. Add any seasoning you want. I added a little thyme but you can add anything you want.

Heat a thick bottomed pan which has a heavy lid as well. Place the meat and let it sit covered on high heat for a 5-10 mins. When its charred on the base flip it over and repeat. Its best if you have a glass lid.

Now reduce the heat and let it cook covered. Once the meat starts to dry up and smoke add some capsicum and continue the same. Once they have also dried up add an onion. Once that has dried add tomatoes. By now some 90 mins would have elapsed and the meat would have also fully cooked thru.

In fact even my young daughter with a shaky tooth had no issues digging into it.

Enjoy it while watching some medieval show like Game of Thrones for added effect.
