Goat meat is reckoned to be the leanest and healthiest meat even less fat than skinned chicken breast. I have recently tried to make curried goat. Each time I have cooked it I have had to skim the fat off the top. It seems to me to be even fattier than lamb. Am I doing something wrong?  I trim all of the visible fat off first of which there is quite a lot. Am I buying the wrong breed of goat meat? Any advice will be much appreciated. many thanks - Richard

Hello Richard

I have never cooked/eaten goat - seems like I should!

I think your best bet would be to contact a breeder/supplier and discuss the best way forward - I've been reading about a few places, like this one: http://www.goat-meat.co.uk/ where they farm the goats and sell the meat from their own herd. 

Good luck with your searching - perhaps you could come back and enlighten us when you discover the best meat, etc.

I've done some batch cooking today.  Started off by mincing some of our Christmas ham, which I'd frozen in portions.  I've used some in two cauliflower/macaroni cheese bakes, topped with a mixture of wholemeal breadcrumbs, grated cheese and chopped fresh rosemary....one for dinner this evening, the other to be frozen.  Just about to have a ham and cheese omelette for lunch.  I've used the rest of the ham in a split pea and ham soup, which is simmering away in the slow cooker, it'll make lunches for a few days.

I don't know why I posted this on a new member's goat meat thread....out of practice and didn't look properly, I guess! roll_eyesbig_laugh
