There's no doubt that goat meat is one of the main ingredients in countless of exquisite meals around the world. Some of the most famous recipes come from Europe and South America. Goat meat has become a synonym of strong flavor; always associated with spicy, Mediterranean foods.

Things You'll Need

  • Goat meat
  • Pot
  • Water
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • White, black and red pepper
  • Brandy or red wine

Choose the goat meat. This is probably the most important part of the whole process, due to the special characteristics of this particular kind of meat. Fresh baby goat meat is the one to choose, because older goat meat (the one found in supermarkets), tends to be very thick and rough. Besides, when it’s cooked, the flavor turns to be too strong for people who are not used to it.

Cook the goat meat in the pot. When dealing with medium size or big size pieces of goat meat the first step is to cook it very slowly in boiling water. This step is particularly done because the meat needs to be softened before being fried. Again, this is a very slow process, which takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

Spice the goat meat. This is easiest of the whole steps. Just add salt and the white/black/red pepper. Every single one of these types of pepper is needed in order to have a special mixture of flavors, that is commonly known in cuisine as a gastronomic explosion.

Let the goat meat soak in brandy or in red wine. This is an ancient technique that looks for expanding the meat flavors, while adding a special flavor from any of these two particular drinks. Brandy is the first option to choose from, but if it’s no where to be found, then red wine is an excellent choice too. The soaking should take about 2 hours.

Fry the goat meat. This is the last and final step which ends the whole cooking process of this delightful meat. Simply fry like any other kind of meat. If you want to take it to a new level add a little white wine while frying, so as to change a little bit the outside flavor of the meat.

Tips & Warnings

  • All kinds of peppers used in the cooking process must have the same size as normal cooking salt.
  • If you're on a diet stick with goat meat which has "40 percent less saturated fat than chicken."
  • Be aware that when frying with alcohol the flames will go up and you may get burned if not careful.
