    Question: How do you cook Goat Meat

    Shop Now
    HELP !
    We have learned that Goat Meat is extremely difficult to cook. The result is always chewy, stringy & difficult to chew. We have tried everything we can think of.
    * Bake it long & slow
    * boiled it first, then bake it
    * cook it 24 hours in a crock pot
    * fry it
    * Cook in a pressure cooker
    * aged if for a week in the fridge before cooking
    * soak it in buttermilk in fridge all night before cooking
    The goat we butchered was only 6 months old.

    What are we doing wrong? What is the SECRET to cooking goat so it is not chewy & stringy? At this point it seems to be MISSION IMPOSSIBLE !

    Braises it, add water and lets it simmer on a low heat for a few hours. Always comes out tender.

    I usually put it in the crockpot. Use a tenderizer if you need to. I like using tomatoes. Yogurt works as well. Typically you'll end up with sort of a curry, which is FANTASTIC with goat.

    Pressure cooker with tomatos. It's never come out stringy or tough here, just melt in the mouth tender.

    I've had very good results from my crockpot creations with goat. Low and slow seems to be the key.

    Most goat that I've had is melt in your mouth tender. Stews/braised/birria in all cases. I wonder if it depends on the breed?

    It does depend on the breed - you MUST track down Boer or Boer cross goats for top quality goat meat.

    If you use the type of product we sell from Goat-meat.co.uk you will not be disappointed. We are one of the countries longest established and largest producers of only top quality goat meat.

    Watch BBC2s The Great British menu, 7.30pm on weds 6th Feb. to see our product being cooked by Chef Michael Smith. Only top product is used on shows like this.

    Then go to our web page to order and join our many happy and repeat customers.
