While goat may not be a typical addition to the American menu, in many other cultures it is a staple ingredient in many cuisines.

It can be used in kabobs, braised, stewed, or curried, and it is really quite delicious. The taste is a bit like combination of beef and lamb. It has a little less of a gamy taste than that of lamb, but the meat is a bit more oily than most beef.
