Now you know where words we use on this forum come from.Words like:

Dhoocil
Booli (qaran)
Qaan (gaadh)

Lams.There's also that southern maah maah.Which goes,(and I'll paraphrase) something like:
"Cimri dheeraadku geel dhalayana wuu ku tusi"

Which is the other side of the spectrum :lol:

Bit chewy I guess. Not for me. The only beef I eat is rib eye and sirloin cuts. Ate rumb steak few times too.

Nothing beats lamb, I occasionally eat an entire shoulder or leg in one sitting by myself.....destination obesity :mrgreen: :eat:
