Yak Meat Recipes

Yak meat is perhaps the healthiest and tastiest beef alternative on the market today. Native to the Tibetan Highlands, Yaks are hearty winter animals. They are acclimated to mountainous regions in Tibet, and develop their fat layer on the outside of their meat, just under their skin layer. This makes for an ideal combination of low cholesterol, saturated fats, and calories but high poly-unsaturated fats, protein and iron. These proportions of fatty acids give Yak meat it's sweet and delicious flavor with the juiciness. The taste of Yak meat is notably more delicate than beef.
