mutton definition and meaning

What is "mutton"?

Mutton refers to the meat obtained from mature sheep, typically over two years old. It is known for its rich flavor and firm texture, which is slightly stronger and more robust compared to lamb, the meat from younger sheep. Mutton is a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world, especially in regions where sheep farming is common. It can be prepared in various ways, including roasting, grilling, stewing, or braising, and is often used in hearty dishes such as curries, roasts, and soups. Mutton is valued not only for its taste but also for its nutritional content, being a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
