Llama meat is fairly lean like all game meats. The flavor of Llama meat lies somewhere between that of beef and lamb.
Llamas were used by the ancient Inca civilization, in South America. Archeological evidence indicates that they have been domesticated for approximately 5,000 years. Many llamas and alpacas were sacrificed to the Gods every year by the Incan culture. The meat would then be distributed to the crowds.
