Thanks to neighbor Dennis Derryberry - who sampled the yak special at Timbers a few days back, and was so inspired he wrote a bit of doggerel...er "yakkerel."
I would gladly go back
to that Timbers shack
to sample the yak,
yes, to sample the yak!
His "take" on the meat:
The yak at the Timbers was excellent!
Remarkably lean, served tender without being undercooked, fine to the knife and tooth with a texture neither stringy nor fatty.
Pleasant flavor - somewhat like I remember my mother's cube steaks - and dressed up with fabulous side offerings.
