Great tasting Bajan lamb - Black-belly Sheep. Day # 39 - B'[email protected]:
Black Belly Sheep is a variety that is indigenous to Barbados. The meat and flavour of the lamb is very tender and distinct. Highly prized and sought after, local lamb does not stay for long on the shelves or in the butcher shops. The most popular way lamb is prepared in Barbados is as a dark, brown stew with fresh herbs, carrots and potatoes. Baked lamb chops are very popular too and can be found at weekday lunch buffets across the islands. However, the lamb chops found at those buffets are usually imported from New Zealand and or Australia. Baked or roasted whole legs or shoulders are reserved for major holidays.
