  • Karahi Goat

    This started as a recipe for Karahi Chicken, a popular street food in South Asia. They put the sauce over fried chicken, and it's really good. This is a Primal version, using goat, which needs long cooking to make it tender, and oh-so-good...

    For the Goat:
    4 lbs Goat Leg (have the butcher cut it into 1/2" slices)
    2 Bay leaves (Turkish)
    1/2 a lemon
    1/2 tsp Turmeric
    Water to cover

    Throw everything into a slow cooker; cook on "low" for 6-8 hours. The lemon cuts down on the 'goaty' smell.
    Remove from pot, let cool, reserve the wonderful stock. Pick the meat off the bones; while you're doing that, use a paring knife to remove all the little bits of marrow from the bones. Eat (Chef's perogative!) You can refrigerate the meat for a couple of days until you want to make the curry.

    For the Curry Sauce:

    6 T. Ghee
    2 Onions, finely chopped
    6 Garlic cloves, chopped
    2 fresh Green Chiles, chopped
    1 tsp. ground Cumin
    1 tsp. ground Coriander
    1/4 tsp. Turmeric
    1/4 tsp. Salt
    1/4 tsp. Garam Masala
    1 tsp. or more Ginger Root, chopped (I use a little more for Goat)
    8 oz. Tomatoes, pureed (you can use canned 'crushed' Tomatoes)
    3/8 c. reserved Goat Stock
    Large handful of Cilantro, coarsely chopped.

    Heat the Ghee in a large pot. Fry onions, garlic and chiles until onions are caramelized (don't let them burn-keep stirring).
    Add spices, and stir Add ginger and pureed tomatoes and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Add the stock, and cook for five more minutes, until the ghee surfaces.

    Add goat meat, stir until meat is heated through. Garnish with Cilantro; serve with Cauliflower 'Rice'.

    Awesome - there's a lady at my local farmers market that sells goat but I never had any idea what I would do with it if I bought it! Having never used it before, I was afraid I would screw it up without a recipe in mind.

      Have fun, Marisa...goat is so delicious!!!
      Just always think, "low and slow" for the cooking

      Also, if you can get a rack of ribs, and your slow cooker is big enough, you can do them that way, then finish on the grill or in the oven.
      Those are truly wonderful <3

        On the topic of goat, what would you do with goats shoulder (that may have bone)?

        The stuff is cheap but I have yet to find a good recipe for it.

          I would ask the butcher to cut it up into about 2" pieces with the band saw, brown the pieces in Ghee...then make a stew with onions, garlic and eggplant. Maybe a little tomato, cardamom and curry powder in there? Most people think it's cool to pick up the bones and suck the meat off.

          At least in THIS house

          ETA: maba has a metric ton of great recipes for goat, including one for Paaya, which is a soup made with goat shanks. She is the kitchen goddess.
          She's probably a little busy right now with baby stuff, but I'll bet if you search her posts, you'll find more good recipes.

            i'm the only one in my house that'll eat goat. so it's a reserved treat for eating out.
            Even if you fall flat on your face, at least you're moving forward!
