We're out of Mutton!

sqwertz | Aug 20, 201110:26 AM     17

You know the infamous commercial where the wife calls into the kitchen, "What are you eating in there, deer?". Husband responds with mouth full, "It's mutton, Honey!". She says, "Don't give me no lip, I know you're eating SOMETHING!"

Anyway, it seems we now have a mutton shortage. There was one place in town that served it until just recently, but they got shut down for procuring their meats using questionable sources methods (Sam's BBQ). So I'm figuring that was just some sort of coverup for a much larger, international mutton conspiracy that reached all the way up to top VIA the Beef Lobby (who are the ones REALLY running this country).

Looks like this question was last asked here about 2 years ago without a valid answer (lamb breast is not mutton). I'm interested in obtaining largish chunks of primal mutton at *decent* prices, which would leave out ordering from "boutique" operations. Sam's sold it pretty cheap, so it must be available somewhere.

I hate to buy meat at Walmart (or much of anything else), but their Lamb Country Style Ribs are fantastic. Or maybe that was a fluke. I'm going to try them again today as a stewish type thing. Here is the last package of them I purchased (they're not really ribs, no).
