Goat Meat: a Healthy and Tasty Option

Saturday 13 July 2013

Goat’s meat is not as popular as fish, chicken, beef, or pork. However, if you are a person who values health it should be on your plate. This horned farm critter’s body carries less cholesterol and less fatty make-up than any of the other meats typically sold for consumption at grocery markets. When prepared properly (a phrase whose exact definition depends on the chef and the eater, of course!) it also has one of the best tastes of any farmyard animal you can name.

The meat provided by domestic goats is what is sold on markets, though some hunters will go for “game” animals as well. The goat sold at market is usually called cabrito, capretto, chevon, mutton, or kid meat. Chevon or mutton mean that the animal used at slaughter was an adult, while the other three terms refer to meat derived from a kid.
