Goat


I told you I was going to let you know how the goat chops turned out. Here's a pic of them before they went on the grill. These are shoulder chops, so they have an extra bone in them and aren't quite as easy to eat as the loin chops will be. Let's get down to what is really important. They were delicious. As you can see, they are simply seasoned with garlic powder and black pepper. I always think the simpler, the better. I was warned that goat can be a bit tougher than lamb, so instead of grilling to rare, we grilled the meat to medium. This was the right choice. My husband gave me the chop that was cooked to medium rare and I noticed the chops cooked to medium seemed easier to cut.  None-the-less, the chop was delicious.  I can tell you that goat fat tastes much like beef fat.  We are big lamb eaters, at our home, but I do not like the flavor of lamb fat at all.  I trim my lamb very closely.  This is completely unnecessary with goat.  This was the first time I have eaten goat without having the flavor of the meat masked by a curry sauce.  All I can say is, I'm really looking forward to having the loin chops.

I'm sorry there is no picture of the chops after they were grilled.  The family was hungry and they were quickly snatched away.

    Oh, neat - thanks for sharing.  We have talked about getting milking goats but were not sure about them for meat.  We don't know anyone who has tried it before -but now I have you! ;) lol!  My husband LOVES lamb - I tried it once, but wasn't a huge fan - but we'll see...
