Get. Chevre. Cabra. All names for this super delicious meat that you need to try. It’s Goat. No, really. Goat is a diet staple in many cultures, and here in South Texas, it’s found on most Mexican restaurant menus. And there’s a reason–it’s flavorful, healthy, and delicious! Get your goat on with these delicious Oven Roasted Goat Ribs.
OK, before you get up in my grill about digging into a meat that many folks will turn their noses up at, hear me out. I know that goats are all the rage right now–videos and pictures of goats are all over social media. But in many cultures, goat is prepared and served in every way imaginable. It’s more savory in flavor than beef, but a little sweeter than lamb. Either way, it really is a delicious option you should consider.
Here in South Texas, my husband and I have found a wonderful purveyor of grass-fed meats. Koch Ranches raises and offers a variety of wonderful meats, with goat being one. We love everything we’ve tried, and goat is one of our new favorites.
One of the important things to understand when preparing a meat such as goat is that it usually requires a longer cook time. Because goats are generally free-range animals, they get more exercise, and in this case, makes for a much leaner meat. That less-fat is great, but can sometimes mean a denser meat. Many preparations can be found where the meat is braised for many hours. But in this recipe, we went for an oven-roasted option that was easier than having to cook the goat ALL day. This allows the meat to break down and become tender and juicy.
It was so easy I’m almost embarrassed to tell you how we did it. But I we’re friends, right? So I’m going to tell you. Ready?
Salt. Pepper. Garlic Powder. Water. Oven. EAT.
Yes, that was it. And it was fabulous.
Once you try this under-served but overly-flavorful meat, you’ll understand why people in all of those other countries have been eating this wonderful lean protein for centuries! Time to get yourself some Goat Ribs and get them in the oven right away!
