More people need to try roast leg of goat. It’s fantastic!
I’ve said in before and I’ll say it again… we don’t cook enough with goat in this country. One of the reasons for this is that we’ve become too accustomed to eating the meat that the supermarkets want us to eat: the meat that brings them the largest profits. Why sell a goat leg when they can make much more selling us boxes of cheap horse meat disguised as beef? I realise they probably didn’t knowingly do this but…
The thing about goat meat is that it tastes great. The meat of young kid goats is very similar to Spring lamb. Older cuts can be cooked into curries as you would beef or lamb and mutton with outstanding results.
Want to hear the good news? Goat meat is also lower in cholesterol and fat than pork, beef and lamb and it’s high in iron and protein.
I hope that the recent bad press about certain processed ready made meals will encourage some of you to get out there and try something new. If you have a hard time finding goat meat, try Farmer’s Choice. They sent me the leg of goat for this recipe.
This recipe takes a couple of days due to the long marinating time. The yogurt and spice marinade not only gives the meat a great flavour, it also helps tenderise the meat.
