My First Taste Of Goat Meat.

Yesterday I drove about 2 1/2 hours south to Monticello, Florida; an enchanting place called Golden Acres Farm.(they have a website BTW)  I was there to purchase 2 goat hutches http://www.ezhutch.net/goathutch.php . But I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of this place.  They had Huge oak trees with Spanish moss hanging from them.  Lots of goats, sheep, chickens and guinea fowl on beautiful green pastureland.  And a huge beautiful home.  While I was there I purchased some goat meat.  It was very expensive; at least for me.  She told me it’s very lean and the best way to cook it is low and slow.  I have a crock pot; but actually prefer to cook something like that on the stovetop.  That way I can control the temp better.  So I braised it this morning.  Then I added a little water, some patis (fish sauce), and some turkish seasoning.  I let it simmer on low until the meat was almost ready to fall off the bone.  I then added slice portabellas and vidalia sweet onions.  It simmered a little longer and then was ready.  I must say it was excellant.  It had a very faint hint of a gamey taste.  Reminded me of a cross between venison and pork.  Well, now I can relax.  The reason is, I’ve invested quite a bit of money into my South African Boer goats and wasn’t even sure if I’d like the meat.  Whew. LOL!!
