Best Way to Cook Goat Meat?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 08, 2013 at 8:52 PM

I recently got some cubed frozen goat meat on sale from my local Middle Eastern market, my brother and I are both excited to try it, but I've heard that cooking goat meat can be tricky because unless you cook it slowly at a low temperature unless it will turn out tough and gamey. Any tips, techniques, recipes, or suggestions?

EDIT: Stewed it in a crock pot on a high then medium setting for 6 hours with chopped onion, parsley, garlic, turmeric, pepper and preserved lemons in olive oil and water and it turned out dee-lish! Also ended up with an unwitting bone broth and had a bowl of leftovers for dinner just now

My list is different...1. Dig hole. 2. Add goat. 3. Cover with dirt. 4. Cook beef. =)

Slow cook in a crock pot with some onions and peppers. Makes great tacos!

The recipe says to trim the fat, but if you are slow-cooking it, I suggest you leave some fat on it. And being a paleo-peep, I am sure you don't mind a bit o' fat.

Braise it: saute in coconut oil (or lard) with some the holy trinity (onion, celery, bell pepper) until brown, then simmer in some liquid until it's falling apart.

Pressure cooker with a tomato base, onions, potatoes, and season. A packet of Taco seasoning actually adds wonderful flavor, and if you want the meat to be a little bit richer and break down right, add some apple vinegar and or some red wine. Gets rid of the gamy flavor. Yum!

I typically do some sort of Indian/Caribbean fusion thing. But yes, slowly. A pressure cooker if you want it faster.

I would probably try to make a curry out of it. Google up "goat curry", I'm sure many recipes will come up.

It really depends on the cut of meat, just like it would with beef. It sounds like you got some stew meat cut, so you would likely want to crock pot or cook it slow and low for a couple hours in a nice stew or braise.

Flavor wise, consider using any of the following or in any combination: cinnamon, allspice, ancho, cocoa, little bit of cayenne.

My personal favorite cut and style is roasted goat leg - yum!

Slowly...and with some yummy spices. I am sure you are looking for something more specific, but that's the basic rule.

Making a Mexican Birria is the best way I have had goat.

Here is a recipe from Food.com: Birria

But the magic comes in slow-cooking, so do not rush it. It's almost like making a pulled-pork recipe. Spice & Time!

Yep, you read that recipe right....26 hours!
