The Torah specifically forbid eating "a kid boiled in its mother's milk." Jewish halacha dictates that this applies to all mixtures of milk and meat. Find out why eating lamb chops sautéed in cow butter is just as un-kosher as hot dogs with milk, or a kid in its own mother's milk. When the Written Word is obscure, the Oral Tradition is necessary.
