I recently got some cubed frozen goat meat on sale from my local Middle Eastern market, my brother and I are both excited to try it, but I've heard that cooking goat meat can be tricky because unless you cook it slowly at a low temperature unless... (more)
Braise it: saute in coconut oil (or lard) with some the holy trinity (onion, celery, bell pepper) until brown, then simmer in some liquid until it's falling apart.
Not a question but we were ordering a bundle of meat from our local butcher and happened to ask about goat, they said that they have it in stock and carry it as a standard item. It's local, pastured and grass fed; you can visit the farm if you'd... (more)
I have finally found a small farm for raw goat milk and bought a share. I can barely stand it I'm so excited. We're planning on drinking it of course but...I want to make yogurt, ice cream...maybe...cheese? I think there is too little fat for... (more)
i am located in bloomington, indiana....i am looking for raw goat's milk however i can only find raw cow's milk...does anyone have any recommendations as to how I can find raw goat's milk other than realmilk.com i checked the website but nothing... (more)
The (hard) raw goat cheese that I buy at my local grocery store often starts to mold (just a tab bit) a day or two after purchasing. Should I just eat the small specs of mold or stay away from it? I know I'm going to survive if I eat it and I... (more)
Doing this all on Droid so.bear with When I.go.to.the halal mkt what cuts of lamb and goat are the leanest and least fatty? What cuts can be prepared quickly in a cast iron pan? What cuts can be easily prepared in an electric slow.cooker? Gratzi! (more)
I am not paleo. I just thought this would be a good place to ask. I have chronically elevated lipase levels and cutting back fat is the only way I can manage it. I also get greasy stools a lot after fatty foods. I have been using coconut oil as my... (more)
http://www.mtcapra.com/caprotein/ There are a few companies out there offering this. I don't tolerate whey well, but powders are great in a pinch and while on the road (I travel for sports a lot). Anyone tried these with any success? (more)
Where I live I can't get raw cow milk, as far as I know. However, in the grocery store I can find good quality goats milk (low-fat and whole varieties). I know there are different benefits to goats milk, like being better for those who are... (more)
I know this is a very specific question, but it's difficult to figure out! I've heard the beef here is often grain-finished (depending on rainfall and the seasons), and this is a selling-point for many suppliers. But what about lamb/goats? On... (more)
I bought some goat belly at 99 Ranch last night and figured I could google a recipe for goat belly curry or something similar. But my google skills failed me, and I couldn't find a recipe. Does anyone have some tips for goat bellies? Does the skin... (more)
I usually braise it in the crock pot. You are lucky, it's a hard cut to find and it's pretty delicious. I find you can braise it with any spices you want + water or broth and it comes out well.
Eat Wild has a list of farms that ship. Looks like there are a number of folks that sell goat.
So we just got three goats butchered for market yesterday, and it looks like I'm going to get to keep the offal. I have three hearts, three livers, and three tongues. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can cook it and make it palatable?... (more)
I have just bought external goat fat from butcher. It's pure fat in creamy white color. I don't know how to use it. Can I make Tallow or just melt it when cooking or frying?. Here in Sri Lanka, they use only for flavoring soup and... (more)
Yeah, I use it a lot. I don't imagine you have crock pots in Sri Lanka because they didn't have them in Europe. I usually use mine for fat rendering, but if you don't have one you can use this method since it's pretty much the same as tallow. I... (more)
Has anyone tried using goat milk/cream/cheese instead of cow's milk? I am super sensitive to dairy products made with cow's milk, but seem to tolerate goats' milk products quite well. I also found a wesbite:... (more)
Ever since I committed to a mostly Paleo diet one of I've been eating goat yogurt regularly and grass fed butter regularly with pretty good results. Recently though, after hearing many people rave about greek yogurt (and seeing what seems to be a... (more)
Hmm.. I wonder if it's because they strain Greek yogurt so its a more concentrated product? Protein levels would be higher than the Goat I would think. There are specific proteins, alpha-casein, alpha s1-casein and beta-casein, that are known to... (more)
Simple answer is yes, because the casein is type A2 vs most cow-produced casein is A1 which is more problematic. Not so simple answer is maybe not that much better if casein, even A2 affects you negatively.
So far as I can tell, there seem to be no recorded cases of "mad sheep" or "mad goat" disease (prion growth, you know what I mean...), but I wanna make doubly sure with everyone. Does anyone have any data on this, or are we to believe that goat... (more)
I have a halal butcher in the neighborhood that sells goat heads. I would love to get the benefits of the brains and tongue in there, but the clerk says that he doesn't know where the goats come from. Does anyone know if goats are raised better... (more)
I just found a small farm about 10 minutes away from where I live that sells goat meat at a fairly good price, it's grass-fed and they occasionally feed it hay. It's not talked about much compared to beef and lamb but I was wondering how it... (more)
Definitely a great meat nutritionally, very similar to lamb. Low in omega-6, decent in omega-3, lots of great monosaturated fat. I would warn you that many westerners find the taste of the fat and meat somewhat gamey. I enjoy it, but I do spice it... (more)
I'm constantly trying to work on my little guys diet. He currently drinks more than the 'recommended' daily intake of cows milk for his age (however he's a big guy in the 99th percentile for both height and weight). I am wondering how goats milk... (more)
I have recently cut out dairy to see if that will help my chronic nasal congestion/drip. So far, it seems to be slowly clearing up. I'm going to miss cheese (I make one helluva primal lasagna using spaghetti squash), although I've found coconut... (more)
Hope I don't offend anyone with that title. Right now (and for the next few months) I'm living on a farm where we share meals three times a day five days a week... it's not vegetarian but mostly grains (a lot of quinoa/amaranth/rice/oats),... (more)
Hi all, As previously mentioned, I live in Spain and one of the great things about it are the artesanal cheese and yogurts available here... a big chain supermarket even sells raw sheep's milk cheese at unebelievable prices! Likewise I can get... (more)
I've had dairy goats for over 20 years and sheep for more than 10. Regarding possible lactose intolerance, goats milk is able to be drunk by many lactose intolerant people because it's naturally homogenised and thus more easily digested. It also... (more)
Both in terms of environmental concerns and individual health concerns, what do you think is the best red meat? Obviously grass-fed is best, but is grass-fed beef better than lamb or goat or bison which is rarely factory-farmed to begin with?... (more)
