Hi, seung. First, let me welcome you to DC.

As for your lamb question, what cut of lamb do you have and how do you wish to cook it?

I've heard lamb described as "soapy." Can you describe the gamey flavor that is bothering you?

I just bought several pounds of breast ribs and will barbecue them. I usually put the ribs in a pot, cover with water, add salt and pepper and cook until just tender. Drain, then finish cooking on the grill, brushing with my homemade barbecue sauce.

I cook other cuts of lamb differently. We especially like lamb chops here and I cook them a variety of ways - teriyaki, sweet-and-sour, cherry sauce, etc.

you could try marinating in milk, or better yet buttermilk.

i've never tried it on lamb, but it keeps fish from smelling (without having to cut off their noses ).

and you would get the benefit of the tenderizing agents in milk.

k.t.e, was your lamb american, or imported, most likely from down under.

i've found american lamb is much less gamey.

seung, I think you have given yourself a significant challenge. Lamb, whether marinated, soaked, etc. is going to have it's "signature" flavor.

You don't say where you live, but you might pose questions to the American Lamb Board via the Internet. They might be able to offer assistance/suggestions.

Best wishes on your endeavor.
