I've often found that when I cook lamb, it has that strong, meaty smell which is still noticeable after I've sprinkled a bit more salt over it during the cooking process.
Is there anything I can use to really reduce the strong meaty smell that lamb has?
CollB - I am honestly not trying to be funny but the danger in attempting something like this is that you spoil the actual meat itself. Cooking meats fresh does occasionally have slightly unpleasant consequences but the overall benefits should more than repay your sacrifice.
In a practical sense, you could try parsley as this herb is well known for reducing the odours of other foodstuffs, especially garlic.
Personally, I would recommend only that you ensure full ventilation of your kitchen where the delicious odour of cooking lamb is an issue and allow your meat to cook properly as nature intended.
Hi Gordon thanks for that suggestion. I like lamb but it can really smell strong. I'll try that parsley idea. Sometimes I use garlic but that leaves a lingering taste in my mouth afterwards.
Full ventilation. That's a good thing - until a neighbouring cat comes wandering through - not to mention insects during the summer!
Thanks again for this - much appreciated.
I strongly suggest taking the wool off first
Im a Kiwi living in the USA and I have missed that smell so much !!
Rosemary is very popular.
Also you might want to google Greek lamb recipes too.
Ok Im jealous now.
Shall I bring a Shirazz or perhaps Pinot Gris from Martinborough -NZ
Rosemary is the herb of choice in every country for negating that animal smell and taste - except where combinations of black pepper and red chilli pepper are used such as in BBQ - which is delicious but hot as hell.
Yes definitely. Rosemary has many beneficial qualities too and can be used in stews.
Rosemary. Yes that's a nice idea. Now that you mention Greek recipes, I've tried kleftico and it is delicious - the lamb isn't overwhelming the other flavours - thanks for this reminder.
I like the taste of lamb but the smell during the cooking of it can be really overpowering.
"Is there anything I can use to really reduce the strong meaty smell that lamb has?"
1.) Get it neutered.
2.) Stop sniffin' smelly lambs.
I simply couldn't resist.
Im using papaya leaf.
Collect some, mix it with water and make juice.
put it on lamb meat for 1 hour and the smell will be away.
Good heavens! If you don't like the smell of meat, don't eat it.
I love the smell of cooking lamb. I usually rub it with rosemary, olive oil and garlic.

I've had this drainage problem for a while now and calling out a plumber is really expensive.

I have decided to do some mutton for tomorrow and wanted to cook it slow overnight. I was planning on sticking it in the oven and thought I would see if anyone here has any suggestions or tricks for making it tasty!
