Goat Meat Casserole
What are your thoughts about goat meat?
Would you eat it?
Most people have heard of goat milk and goat cheese and have used these ingredients in their recipes. When they hear about goat meat, there is a big tasteful look, they wrinkle their nose and they say “NO” very fast and furious. Many countries use goat meat in their cuisine, but very few American’s eat it. Why? Is it because they are cute or just because most American’s have never thought about eating it?
Goat is one of leanest meat. For this reason if not cooked right it may taste tough. With it being very lean it has less calories then beef. Although it is lower in fat and calories then many other meats, it has the same amount of protein.
Goat is a popular meat of Togo, West Africa and it is there that I got my first taste of this delicious meat. We often make Goat Soup to eat with rice or FuFu. Not long ago we found ground goat meat and made Goat Burgers that were awesome ~ I am not sure if I will eat Beef Burgers again. The latest meal we have eaten with this meat is a Goat Casserole. My husband had found this recipe on a package of frozen goat cube that he bought.
