Many Americans are more familiar with goat milk or cheese than they are with the meat itself. But globalization and increased immigration means foodies in the West are becoming savvy to this delicious food source. Goat meat is mild-flavored, buttery and comparable to lamb.
Goat meat is actually lower in calories, total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol than not just lamb, pork and beef meats, but also turkey and chicken meat. This makes goat meat the healthiest red meat, even better than turkey and chicken.
Goat meat features heavily in Middle-Eastern, South Asian, Latin American, and Caribbean food. It’s best served in stews and braises because of its low fat content.
