Yak meat is highly nutritious. If you like lean beef, you will like yak. It is mild with a clean finish on the palate. Because of the origins of yaks in the Himalayas, they evolved to carry their layer of fat near the skin so the meat is not marbled like beef. It is very lean and should therefore never be overcooked. It is very juicy due to it's high percentages of Omega 3 oils, CLA's ( Conjugated Linoleic Acids ), Oleic Acids, and Stearic Acids, (35% higher than beef as a percentage of fats that are good for us). At the same time, Yak meat is very low in Palmitic Acid which is bad for us (30% less than beef as a percentage of fats, and 120% less than beef as a percentage of meat). Yak remains higher in protein, solids, minerals, and vitamins than beef; while scoring much lower in saturated fats, cholesterol, triglycerides, and calories than beef!!
It is definitely worth a try.
