So I climbed onto Google and went searching! I started with a simple "canned mutton" search, and was blown away by the results!
I got to move up to # 3!
It was right about then that I realized that there are no recipes for canned mutton! In fact few people have even heard of this delicious offering. I am excited, if the 'mutton fairy' delivers I may have the only can in Canada.
One wonders why canned mutton is not already a big hit? Then I discovered what may provide the key to the problem.
I am not daunted by this, in fact it excites me, I think the recipe potential is huge. From a simplistic canned mutton hash, to a version of the french classic Boeuf Bourguignon, the potential is almost endless. My plan is to try it in as many ways as possible, I can already see Japanese Pot stickers, Spanish Risotto, Chinese Sweet and Sour, and maybe even an Italian dish or two, some stuffed tortellinis, or even a lasagna.
I am also wondering how it would work in a Sushi application? I suspect that it would be a great filler for a 'Mongolian Roll'.
All in all, I am jazzed about this opportunity to take an unusual ingredient to new highs. I am expecting a call from the 'Food Channel' in the next couple of days.
