Goat-it's what's for breakfast-lunch-and dinner.

Found a guy about 20 miles away raising Grass Fed Goats, ordered a small goat, about 25 pounds dressed out. Picked up today. Great guy, wife's a doctor, has three kids, works a full time job, but finds time to raise about 30 goats at a time, has some great looking beef cows and some pastured pork, all raised on grass, no antibiotics in feed, no massive amounts of chemicals used in soil.

If you've not tried goat meat and many people haven't, give it a try. It's very lean, and does need to cook a little longer. He mentioned that he gets orders for goat meat from as far as New York(6 hour drive) as some cultures eat goat on a regular basis. Mostly in curry's, stews, and if fresh, on the spit.

Price was about $3.00 per lb, dressed out.

I'm marinating some now, will Pressure Cook or Grill tomorrow.

Nice, Jay.

Goat meat is the most widely consumed meat in the world.
There are few, if any, religious taboos limiting goat meat consumption.

Thanks for the link, I'm surprised to hear that about goat meat.

I've mentioned to a few friends and they just roll their eyes, like eating a goat was the not even something they'd consider...... oh well, more for us.

Be well, stay strong, hope your practice is doing well.

A quality spit might have to be my next investment.
Thanks David for the suggestion, got to love Google.


Cabrito Al Pastor ~ Grilled Kid ~ Baby Goat
From: THE TASTE OF MEXICO by Patricia Quintana, Stewart, Tabori & Chang,

Ingredients (8 servings)
2 kids (baby goats), 6 1/2 to 8 1/2 lbs each3 tbsp salt
1 cup mild vinegar

For the garnish:
2 cup guacamole (recipe separate)
3 tbsp white onion, chopped
1 cup tomato, finely chopped
3 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
3 tbsp chile serranos, finely chopped
1 recipe Frijoles de Olla, mashed (Refritos)
1 1/2 c Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese, freshly grated
16 Totopos (crisply fried tortilla wedges)

Instruction

Put kids in a large stockpot, and cover with water. Add salt and vinegar. Set
aside for 2 hours. Meanwhile, build a pile of mesquite wood on the ground, and
burn down to white coals. Remove kids from water and thread on spits. Arrange over
the hot coals, and roast for 2 to 3 hours, depending on the kids' weight, basting occasionally with a little salted water. Turn spits continuously so that the meat cooks evenly, or use a rotisserie. Add more white coals if necessary. To serve, cut kid in pieces, and place on plates. Garnish with guacamole, onion, tomato, cilantro, and chiles. Serve with Frijoles de Olla sprinkled with cheese, totopos(crispy fried tortilla wedges - flour ~ recipe ), and Pico de Gallo sauce. The cabrito may be shredded and used in fried tacos.

Makes 8 servings.

I'm thinking that historically goats and deer (same family, cervidae) were probably the most consumed prey animals of early hunter gatherers.

Re: Goat-it's what's for breakfast-lunch-and dinner.

I was catching up on my fitness world reading this morning and saw one of the coaches (not CF) who listed horse meat as one of his lean meat sources. Apparently, it's readily available in Quebec.

Don't know if I'd add that to my list of meat I'd like to eat!

We're just getting ready to order a side of grass-fed beef to split with another family...but that's a topic for another thread.

How did the goat taste?

I love that his last name is Lamb.

Goat is awesome by the way for those of you who are a little standoffish.
