Cookbook Summary

For anyone who happens upon this Web site and says to themselves, “This all seems odd,” here is a capsule summary of Joe’s Original Alpaca Burger Cookbook.

Every day, in kitchens across North America, home cooks face the challenge of making healthy, economical meals. Meanwhile, countless alpaca farmers wonder: What can we do with these animals?

The surprising answer for the two may lie in this unique new volume. It began as a road map for unhappy alpaca owners and anyone else who wants to give alpaca meat a try. But the end result is a wide-ranging culinary guidebook for turning the basic into something epic.

As ground meat, most of the alpaca is both usable and tasty. Of course, ground meats of all types—beef, poultry, lamb, and pork—have been staples in home kitchens for generations, but are often considered boring. The hamburger can be inexpensive, but can also be monotonous.

Even if you don’t have any alpaca, this cookbook provides easy ways to prepare interesting dishes, even on weeknights. Styles of cuisine covered include Eastern European, French, Indian, Thai, Javanese, Tex-Mex, Jamaican, along with more familiar-sounding concoctions and, of course, burgers.

For so many of us, alpacas and ground meats have each, in their own way, proven disappointing. How ironic that bringing them together may be the salvation of both. When life gives you alpacas, make burgers.

Marinades, Sauces, and Condiments

-These Can Be Considered Staples
-Basic Ground Meat Marinade
Outstanding for beef burgers cooked on the grill, and a solid choice for any other type of ground meat…

-Mint Marinade
Unsurprisingly, this is a perfect marinade for lamb, while not too shabby for beef or alpaca, either. It is a strong marinade…

-Jalapeno Dressing
Any meat going toward a Southwest- or Tex-Mex-themed meal will do well with this as the marinade. A lot of the liquid and flavor will cook out, as these salsa-based marinades are wont to do, but it leaves a pleasant taste and will help with tenderizing. Also, this dressing makes a lovely condiment…

-Island Salsa
-Aubergine Relish
-Chili Sambal Sauce
-Phat Peanut Sauce
-Lime In The Coconut Sauce
-Joe’s Multipurpose Curry Paste
