Bought some goat meat

I've been curious to try goat meat for a while. Finally bought some on a whim when passing a shop. Before I put it in the freezer I fried off a piece. Tasted like (beef) steak. Does that sound right? Anyway, does anyone have any good goat meat recipes before I curry it the same as I would lamb?! Smile

Goat normally requires slow cooking to make it really tender and get the best flavour. I would make a tagine (you can make it in a flameproof casserole dish if don't have a tagine). There are loads of lovely recipes but I very would finely chop shallot, mint, coriander, garlic and lemon zest and make a sort of marinade with olive oil and leave the meat in that for a couple of hours then cook some chopped onions and peppers then add the meat/marinade, a tablespoon or two of harissa, a splodge of honey, bit of lemon juice, tin of chickpeas and some passata. Season and then let it cook slowly over a low heat until the meat is tender then add a bag of spinach and a couple of chopped fresh tomatoes for the last 5-10 mins or so. Serve with couscous which has been dressed with lemon juice, seasoning, pomegranate seeds and plenty of fresh mint and coriander.

Seconding the suggestion of Jamaican goat curry, served with rice and peas its amazing, scotch bonnets optional!

Yes - goat curry - absolutely delicious! Helps to marinate the meat beforehand in the spice blend.

Could you please let me know where you bought the meat please. It is cooked exactly like lamb curry. If you bought it in a shop it is likely that it is prime/adult goat so it needs to be slow or pressure cooked like lamb/mutton.If it is a kid goat (like spring lamb) it cooks normally. In South Asia male goat are castrated so that they don’t smell , I’m not sure if the adult goat in the uk are the same, if not the meat will smell.

Curry goat is great!
A lot of halal butcher's have goat, but confusingly it's often labelled mutton!
It will usually have bones as well and is cut up ready for curry.
If you see "mutton" ask the butcher if it is goat or sheep before you buy.

It's not goat curry, it's curry goat.
