Why didn't I think of this thread before? Why god, why?
So meat on the bone, are you a fan?
are you talking about joints on the bone or getting served meat on the bone at the table? are we talking about whole poultry? are we talking about lamb shanks? i'd like to discuss lamb shanks.
is there a bone? why yes there is
Let's discuss lamb shanks. The king of all shanks*
*except a good prison yard shanking
It has to be slow cooked though, preferably for at least a day, e.g. kleftiko (perhaps the best thing I can cook).
I'm not sure why but it's seems a bit tenderer on the bone, I like eating chicken drumsticks. And ribs. I don't think I could exclusively eat one cut of meat though. In Sainsburys now they do 'thigh meat' which is kind of meat on the bone without the bone part.
I quite like eating a load of ribs, and then using the bones to make a miniature temple of doom on my plate.
The Nandos I had yesterday - wonderful.
Lamb shanks - wonderful
Ribs - possibly a bit too much effort for the pay off, but still wonderful
what a watse of time those things are. so much effort for so little reward.
Oder the Jacobs Ladder ribs.
Change your mind.
Come back here and apologise.
but not sure whether it was because it was on the bone or the fat in it tasted so good
But meat cooked on the bone IS nicer. I just ask the chef to take it off before serving.
I bet you've never asked the chef to do that.
You can TECHNICALLY eat them with cutlery, but it's just a pain in the arse. Same reason I rarely order fish, it's really nice but if you have to faff around with unedible bits it detracts from the enjoyment I find.
I've never asked a chef to do anything. People who make special requests/complain/send food back are the very worst kind of people.
its legs that are a pain.
and the thigh is a part of the ....
you know what i meant. you know.
served on the bone? Depends how greasy it is, but the is something fantastically primeval about gnawing on the bone.
Like Royter though, I do value ease of eating and dislike mess, so cook it on the bone then remove it would be the ideal.
Leg Of Lamb
Those people clearly don't have West Indian grandmas.
I don't like being served bones though. Needless fiddly nonsense.
otherwise, nay. And ribs are shit.
the meat found on the ribs is amongst the most tender, sweet and succulent on the whole animal.
an angry rib fan. I wouldn't know how tender, sweet and succulent it is as most of just ends up in my teeth.
and enjoy the mess of delights
or y'know, just store it up for later
I'll have something else. Thanks anyway.
therefore, yes I am a fan.
just love it.
I hate people who say they can't eat meat on a bone. because, ya know, its on a bone and means it comes from an animal.
that whenever I cook a roast, picking meat from cooked bird is one of my favourite things ever.
^ to the tune of "here come the girls"
its the bit in the song where it goes..here come the girls..girls...girls...girls girls like in the background.
I wasn't just shouting bone bone bone bone.
But it's quite cutty
everyone knows that
christ I want ribs
And once you've stripped the bone clear of all flesh/cartilage/gristle, you can crack them and suck out the marrow. OM NOM NOM
mutton curry on the bone, some of the most succulent, deliciousness ever
Taste/tenderness/primeval gnawing pleasure doesn't even come in to it. I'm a lazy, lazy man and I'd rather have the veggie option that dick about with getting as much meat off the bone as possible to feel that I was doing it right.
