I purposely make a sentence with at the expenses of. Is it good English writing? Any mistake?
- Finally, I was promoted as a department head at the expenses of breaking up with my boyfriend as I've been too busy at work.
For some kind of well-cooked lamb, beef...., they still carry strong flavor or scent of itself which a lot of people cannot stand. How should I describe this flavour and scent? Shall I say "gamy", any other better word in common?
Are the above sentences acceptable?
- This lamb/beef tasted gamy
- This lamb/beef scented gamy
- This lamb/beef is having strong scent of game
How can I make them better?
I would suggest that gamey is perhaps not the right word. "Gamey" indicates a particular smell that contains an element of the meat being tainted as game (pheasant, hare, and other game) is hung for an extra long period). Over-cooked meats such as lamb or beef are unlikely to have this taste. It might be better described as "burnt".
