I was all set to pick up a cheap pizza when my neighbor brought over some just made ox roast from a deer he got. So ox roast sandwiches for me.

I had leftover "Linda's pot of pork", leftover potatoes, and rødkål. Put it all on a plate and nuked it.

OK, Pac, so how do you get an ox roast from a deer? I thought they were two different animals....

Ended up rebooting tonight's menu. Himself figured I shouldn't play with knives tonight, so he ran out to our favorite pizza joint and picked up a couple small calzones. I ate half of mine (steak bomb) and finished off the last mug of tasty, albeit flat as a freshly ironed hankie, butternut ale.

Well it doesn't come from an ox either, any more than oxtail soup uses tail sections from an ox, so it's all good

Ox roast is a regional thing, but basically it is shaved beef in a broth, or in this case shaved venison in broth. You make sandwiches with it like beef on wick, but you gotta have the broth to spoon onto the roll. Lots of recipes if you Google it.

Thanks to this discussion I wandered into Google and the dozens of different meanings of the word 'ox'. Add regional usage and it becomes more than dozens.

I love words so it was fun------ but as far as I could tell you can call almost anything an ox. LOL

And apparently "oysters", too. As in prairie oysters

Yeah! And who knew that it was/is also the name of a Canadian country band too? I sure didn't.

We raised our own lamb for food and I can tell you that those little 'oysters' were delicious.
