cooked up a backstrap and tenderloin with some stock and tomatoes seasoned with garam masala the other day. i am sort of regretting not using it on the grill instead. it was too tender to be used like stew meat for sure. i am still eating on the leftovers. mmmmmmm. why hasn't chevon caught on!!! it is so silly when I tell people about goat meat (or milk for that matter)and they grimace and make ew gross sounds. seriously, why is eating a cow or pig ok but a goat is gross!!!cows and pigs are way more disgusting animals than goats!

comparison -

meat         protein g.           fat g.          iron g.

goat           23                    2.58             3.2
beef           23                     16               2.0
chicken       21                     3.5              1.5
pork            21                    24                2.7

myself being a "woman of childbearing age" especially pays attention to the iron.

goat meat also has approx 20% less saturated fat than even chicken. typical beef has 6 times the amount of saturated fat in comparison to chevon and pork has about 8 times!
And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 % guaranteed) - Seuss. tiny ad:
