In West Indian cooking, it is common to wash or clean meat a certain way. "We do not cook meat straight out of the package. The way I learned to clean goat and lamb meat is with a couple of handfuls of flour, 1 tsp salt, juice of 1 lime, and enough water for the meat to soak. Mix the meat with these ingredients and let it sit for 1/2 hr to 45 minutes, then rinse it off piece by piece. Use a knife to pull off any fibrous strands then rinse again and pat dry. This method of â€œcleaningâ€ the meat is a way to remove any slime, rank smell, or off taste that the meat might have. This is the way we always cleaned meat in my home, but feel free to use your own way."
