      Im not sure if this works for all meat, but if I feel like my meat smells, I usually put a couple teaspoons of white vinegar on it, and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I wash/rinse the meat. It usually kills some of the smell.

      Yes I have found vinegar to help.
      I am not too fond of whole garam masalas in dishes but if I feel the meat has some smell I use it (cinnamon stick,green cardamom,black cardamom,cloves,peppercorns).Their smell overpowers the smell of the meat.

      Garlic usually helps but it sounds like you are already using that...

      Maktoob, yes unfortunately the smell of lamb is seriously hard to get rid of ! I didnt find it as hard to remove in several other countries, but in the UK, its next to impossible .. I have tried almost every freaking tactic that people told me and still cant eat lamb peacefully !

      The maximum you can do is put loads of vinegar on the meat and let it sit in a strainer for at least 20 minutes .. the blood will start getting drained out of the meat .. then before cooking wash it and that reduces it a bit ..


      Also, what chips said, add some whole aromatic masala's to the meat while bhooning it , that also somewhat reduces the smell ..

      lamb, goat etc have a more gamey smell coz their fat has short chain fatty acids. i think the best you can do is drain away the fat that floats up. i have no idea why anyone would want to eat lamb and not want the flavor of it though.

      goat vs lamb???

      I do find lamb meat a bit smelly but I agree with queer. Why eat it when you are getting rid of all the good stuff and in the end you have tasteless meat. I also rinse it very well.

      I love goat meat though

      Queer, its people like us, who dont have a choice .. Where I live we dont get Goat meat and places that we do get either its not halal, fresh or too expensive !

      So we end up with lamb

      you know ...i thought it was me doing something wrong that it smells so bad......the biggest problem is my husband is fond of eating meat and i have to cook meat dish every other day almost and it is so disappointing to put so much effort in and in the end what you get is smelly lamb pulao and alloo gosht...(which i cooked a day before and will finish it myself today naak band karkay) because kitna insan food banayee aur phainkay:S...but as everyone is suggesting...vinegar and garam masala do help to some extent...vinegar i havent tried but will definitely use inshAllah....

      The only red meat we've always had in our family is lamb. Masala is made first with whole masalas (after onions are done, then tomatoes and spices are added). Cinnamon stick and cardamon are essential for the smell but we use everything else chips mentioned as well. It should only smell a bit in the beginning... and once it's bhooned should smell like normal salan. The quality of the lamb and how fresh it is, is very important too. Oh and I don't know what other people do but we have our lamb divided up at the butchers.. so there are the less fatty pieces used for salan, mostly fatty pieces used when making plough, and chops separately.
      OMG Paki!
