Absolutely. But I don't think they came with New Zealand stamped on the fleshy part of the joint.

I remember seeing the stamp several times and wondering if they accompanied Anchor butter.

I just ate two croissants. I'll be dead by this evening.

Lamb is horribly expensive in QC, BTW.

Costco does a whole fresh Lamb for about $120 well worth it!

I just googled images of whole fresh lamb. They look like squirrels

Where's the rest? Even sheared, they're bigger than that.

Never mind the lamb, elk joint looks fantastic as does the bison. The elk $96 though. Both reasonably healthy meat as well, very slimming...to your wallet

Have you tried elk?

We are able to obtain elk for the price of a hunting tag, but we find it far too dry. The dogs love it

I've had elk tenderloin, which wasn't in the least bit dry. A previous neighbour bred bison, so we had that regularly. Both elk and bison are very lean meat and need to be cooked carefully so they don't become dry.

Crucial that you dont dry it out- like pigeon and pheasant ( I sound like a right toff )
We had fantastic elk medallions in a restaurant in Banff- cost quite a bit

Never had caribou Bristol but I like any deer meat, as RICH says, lean and healthy

I'm not 100% sure- I remember it being on a corner of the Main Street, not directly on it. It was a special that day- beautifully cooked

I'm probably thinking the Maple Leaf Grill

I had my wife's homemade goulash soup last night. Chunks of tender beef, all sorts of veggie and a great paprika soupy-thing.

All very nice but you would not have wanted to be the person following me in the bog queue this morning.
