ISO Goat Recipes

Does anyone have a recipe for using goat meat for main meal? The article in newspaper states that goat will be used more and more here in the states. Stated it would be not as fatty as beef. My brothers told me they had it when they were small and it was barbeque. Uncle had goats and butchered one so they would have something to eat. I have had goat milk and has definite different flavor than cow's milk.

I have had delicious goat curry and also goat stew. I think I have had it a few other ways, but can not remember the ways off the top of my head.

Jamaican curried goat stew is wonderful. Search Food Network : Healthy Recipe Collections, Party Ideas, Quick & Easy Recipes and epicurious.com for recipes. Goat is similar to lamb in flavor so any Indian curry works well and many Greek dishes with lemmon onion oregano garlic and olive oil.

This one is excellent: (and HOT)

Curried Goat Recipe courtesy Walter Staib, Beaches and Sandals Resort, Jamaica




1 cup curry powder
3 large sprigs thyme
3 scotch bonnet peppers, finely chopped
2 onions, diced
1 bunch scallions, diced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 pounds goat meat, bone in (lamb meat may be substituted)
1/2 cup chopped fresh garlic
1 carrot, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 pound potatoes, diced
1/2 cup chopped ginger
3 quarts chicken stockTo make the marinade, combine the curry, thyme, scotch bonnets, onions, scallions, salt, and pepper. Marinate the goat meat overnight. Remove the goat meat from the marinade. Reserve leftover marinade.
In a hot braising pan, brown the goat meat and garlic. Add carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, ginger, and reserved marinade. Add stock and stew for approximately 1 hour until meat is tender or about to fall off the bone.

You can certainly halve the recipe, and you really don't need a full cup of curry spice! Carrots are a nice addition as well.

Goats

Thanks for your time in responding so quickly. Now all I have to do is contact this guy in paper to see what prices he gets for goat. do you think it is as high price as lamb? Well, I will sure find out. This is so interesting and great as my brothers always had taste for eating it again. Thankful they can remember yet when they were small. Different time from now. They tell me they don't want to look for wife as all of them don't want to cook. I guess if we were really honest we would rather have someone prepare our meals for us but would they be as good? I doubt it. You all are great cooks and I say again, I appreciate you all. Wonderful resource since my mom gone.

Thanks to all and maybe you will have goat in near future.

Robo410: did you like it and do you have it often? It surely does sound like lamb in the amount of time it takes. I just feel so fortunate that I can find out how many people on this site have had so many different kinds of meats.

yes I like it. It is similar to lamb, a little drier so it is great for stew. ribs and chops on bone give great flavor. I first bought it at a Halal market (Muslim butcher) but more recently I have found a local farm with free range animals including goat. Usually it is priced similarly to lamb, never as cheap as beef or pork on sale, so it is not an everyday thing in my house but certainly a couple/ three times a year.

there have been some interesting pricing issues related to goats this past winter. For at least 10 years, goat meat (chevon) has been pushed on farmers as the up and coming food product to raise. And even last year, record high prices could be gotten for chevon. Until recently. The supply has exceeded demand for the first time ever in the US because so many people have started to raise Boer goats. In Ohio and PA, you can't give them away. Buyers have the market right now. Note that this does not apply to farm raised chevon, because us small farmers have to pay the higher costs for feed and energy. But I would be interested to hear if markets have reasonable prices right now. I guarentee you markets paid very little for the meat.

so you are farmer? I always respected people who had to farm as my mother's people were farmers and when I visited we would get up while it was still dark. I was on summer vacation and thought it would be fun. It was very very different and to me at the time, hard. I helped with gathering eggs, killing chickens, milking the cows, feeding when told and so many other chores that I was not used to doing. Now that I remember my two weeks visit I appreciate what farmers have to do to maintain their lifestyle. Everything truly depended mostly on the weather and what blessings God allowed. Such beautiful people that allowed me an opportunity to see what they had to do everyday. (When you are young you think everybody lives and does the same things you do. Was an education for me)

Sad to say, my cousin whose parents had the farm, is now working for the state as some kind of political office. What a contrast to the farm! He admitted compared to working on the farm, everything else seems easy.

thanks for your comments.
