Yes that is the sound a Goat makes, those repulsive 4 legged walking garbage disposal systems with creepy rectangle pupils. Yet despite all their negative attributes and qualities while alive they can be oh so tasty when dead, and properly seasoned or else it just tastes like goat which according to my girlfriend is “No Bueno”.
I remember the first time I had goat, it was also the only time I had goat but it was July 4th 2009. It was humid, hot, and horrid, we’re all slurping away at our strawberry margaritas while I’m in the kiddie pool swirling around like a 5 year old on a sugar high when the delicious scent of pork, goat and chicken made it’s way across the street and into the back yard and Like the Flash dropping a Banana and telling everybody we’d be back before it hit the ground we took off running in the direction of food.
As we stood in line gazing at the wonderful display of meats I suddenly realized I’m ultra white and can’t speak a lick of Spanish, so while the very kind woman spoke to me in Spanish, all I could do was nod, point and smile. As she loaded my plate with corn tortillas stuffed with this wonderful mystery meat that I thought was Beef, My girlfriend points out that this on my plate is Goat. I’m fairly flexible with foods and I love to explore new flavors so this was an exciting new experience and it was great!
The meat was different, the spice was wonderful and complemented the gamy taste the meat had, it was perfect for the flavor of goat, it’s been almost a year and I can’t remember what exactly it was spiced with, but the texture resembled carnitas so it just fell apart.
Over all, Goat is pretty good, I still can’t stand the taste of goat milk or cheese though.
