ISO sheep or goat ideas
I came across an excellent arab (moroccan I guess) butcher recently. Who carries (along the usual meats that don't come from pigs) sheep and goat.
I've been told that both meats are very tasty, but I didn't buy any because I don't know what to do with them.
Does any of you have ideas or recipe's designed for (or adapted to) either one of these?
Thanks a lot in advance.

West indian -Goat curry! I haven't had it since I was a kid, but it was good. Mutton is a great meat, quite "gamey" tasting sometimes. In England the oldest I can come up with is hoggitt or year old, which is still soft enough to roast, I put some water in the pan to steam it as it roasts and help produce a soft roast meat. An older sheep I think I would think of mutton pies and stews as a first choice - if I could get it.

But if the sheep is just lamb - my goodness, its one of the loveliest meats going and there are a wealth of thinks to do with it. I love minted lamb chops with redcurrant jelly, morrocan tagines with dried fruits served with cous cous, even shepards pie - my fathers all time favourite meal and, imo, far superior to the beef version of cottage pie! In fact, I would do the shepards pie with mutton too.

I have almost 30 years experience with butchering, packaging and cooking with chevon (goat meat). What cuts of meat are available and what types of recipes are you looking for?

I've eaten lamb since I was a kid...great with garlic, rosemary, or in a stew (Irish of French) Lamb grills well, is great with lemmon, very versatile. Goat is similar in flavor, but more like beef in texture. Many feel they have a "gamey" flavor compared to beef or pork. Not really so, each meat has it's own taste. It is we Americans who have so processed all flavor out of our food. So give it a try. Lamb is safe to eat rare or medium.

I'm not too keen on goat, but I love lamb and even mutton, if it can be found!

I've posted lots of lamb recipes here and so have many other posters. You're bound to find a recipe you'd like by using the 'search' option at the top of the page!

I just want you to know how hard it is not to respond to the title of this thread in a way that would get me in big trouble.
