Yak Burgers

I came across Yak meat at our local grocery store last week, and had to try.  We decided on Yak Burgers, and were very happy! All at dinner decided that Yak would become a new part of our diet.  This meat was sweet and had no gaminess whatsoever.  Very lean, its delicate, delicious flavor comes from its unique distribution of fatty acid percentages. Domestically raised, Yak is lower in fat than salmon. This is accomplished on a grass/forage diet, with no grain, hormone, steroid, or antibiotic feed supplements.

Do not overcook the burgers! Apparently roasts and cuts with connective tissue need a longer cooking time (although the meat is juicy and tender, the connective tissue is quite tough).

Give Yak a try! You won’t be disappointed!
