3 days is a lot of days to be involved in the prep of a single food item :0

just sear it in a pan until rare, goat is renowned for its tenderness.

lololol

the goats probably beat you up so you'd say that. kids these days.

I was thinking about doing it in the sous vide and then throwing it into a pan in the oven to get a bit of a crispier crust though. If I were cool I'd have pimento wood to smoke it though.

jerk goat is something i'd say while shaking my fist and watching all my precious jean shorts get eaten

[–]trimalchio[S] 2 points3 points ago

i'm gonna say that's why i can't wear all my favorite shorts from last year. this goat deserved it.

I love spending too much time on one dish just to ensure it's amazing but I also don't do it very often

[–]trimalchio[S] 2 points3 points ago

yeah, i need to get way better at just doing this stuff. its usually nowhere near this long and slow of a thing to do but even just like an hour or two of prep can yield a better than restaurant meal.

i've also been doing shimp a lot lately because i found out how easy it was to do them in sauces and stuff. (bag of frozen raw shrimp, defrosting them under water and shelling them takes a little time but it's not very long. just throw them in at the end into the sauce and cook them 1-2m each side and bam done. and they work in so many sauces.)

but yeah, cooking is good times.

You just made me hungry for some goat!

goat is the best meat IMO. it feels kinda rude to eat a lamb, they barely got a chance, and i haven't really had mutton but I've heard its tougher than goat. and also goats are kinda big assholes a lot of the time. and then goat is just like better tasting than so much other stuff. but lamb is basically just better goat too.

If you don't mind sharing (don't feel pressured to!!!), where do you live that you can get goat meat? I've always wanted to try it.

so I live outside of NYC in an area with a not insignificant jamaican population (not jamaica tho lol) and so it was just hiding in the freezer section. I'm pretty sure it'll be the same 5 trays of goat that basically represent the whole side or whole animal that they bought whenever i go back for more. it was cut up into rough sections so it'll probably just stay that way and I'll bake it with jerk on the outside and serve it in the pieces it came in. but they're gonna be weird which is annoying. also annoying was the super sharp stabby bones that it had.

til that goat and mutton aren't interchangeable words for everyone??

also, it was really hard for me to parse jerk goat

[–]hoppet🍕🍣🍛🌯🧀🍔🍜🍵🍪 1 point2 points ago

yeah i always thought goat was goat and mutton was sheep

[–]trimalchio[S] 0 points1 point ago

goat and sheep are totally different animals though!

[–]trimalchio[S] 1 point2 points ago

mutton is supposed to be old sheep though! goat is any age of goat.

also why was jerk goat hard to parse? i know it's not a thing in actual jamaican cooking but i always wanted to pair them together somehow

[–]oolong🍵>🍔 1 point2 points ago

you can get both here, but no one differentiates between them?? ok well, you're more likely to get goat--

yeah, that's pretty much why!! i don't see it on menus so it's just surprising

[–]trimalchio[S] 1 point2 points ago

yeah my whole basis of this was "goat is my favorite meat. jerk is my favorite seasoning. why not?"
