11 Tasty, Savory Goat Recipe Ideas to Spice up Your Lunch and Dinner Menu
1. Sweet and Spicy Indian-Style Goat Curry
If you’re looking for a simple, easy recipe to break your goat meat virginity, you need to try this Indian-style curry dish! It has a spicy, savory sarsa that envelopes the goat meat in all kinds of herbs and spices.
Plus, it doesn’t taste all that different from pork or beef curry. The kids might not even know the difference!
Note: Don’t say you like Indian curry until you’ve tried goat meat curry. Contrary to popular belief, beef isn’t as widely used in Indian curry dishes.
Remember that Hinduism, the dominant religion in India, treats cows as a sacred symbol of life and should not be used for human consumption. So most Indian meat dishes used goat and chicken.
2. Sour, Spicy Filipino-Style Kilawing Kambing
Coming in strong all the way from the island of the Philippines is the kilawing kambing! Roughly translated, it means to eat goat meat raw.
It’s a spicy, sour, and zesty dish that maximizes the goat meat’s thick, unique, chewy, and savory taste. The recipe was made popular in provincial areas where one did not have access to many cooking ingredients.
You can pair this with rice, eat on its own, or serve as bar chow.
3. Rich, Savory Roasted Goat Leg
Who knew that goat could taste like pork ribs? Roasted goat leg is a delicious goat dish best paired with rice, mashed potatoes, fries, or salads.
What makes this one of the most special goat recipes available is how soft and tender the cooking process makes the goat meat. You’ll be left speechless when you see how smoothly the meat glides off of the bones.
Note that the recipe indicated is very versatile. Don’t be afraid to modify it with a few American favorites such as barbecue sauce.
4. Spicy Chivo Guisado Picante
Indian curry is nice, but if you’re craving for something less spicy and earthy, try this curry goat meat recipe born in the Dominican Republic!
It’s a sweet, spicy, and creamy dish that accentuates the goat’s unique, chewy flavor. Plus, since goat meat is tougher than beef or pork, the curry sarsa will easily slide off from the meat down to your tongue.
The keys to making the most out of this recipe are herbs and spices.
Note: The longer you store this Dominican-style dish, the deeper its juices will seep in the meat.
5. Rich, Spicy, Savory Goat Soup
Warm-up the body with some warm, zesty goat soup! It’s a mild-flavored dish that heavily accentuates the unique flavor of goat meat with various herbs and spices.
6. Thick, Savory Grilled Goat Meat
The next time you host a barbecue party, put the beef back in the fridge and opt to serve some high-grade grilled goat! It might not be as thick, but it’s much cheaper, so you can buy a lot more pounds of goat meat than beef.

Goat tacos are very popular in Mexico. Their sour, juicy, and zesty meat pairs well with both soft and hard shells stuffed with fresh veggies.
To make the dish even spicier, opt to cook the goat meat in some crushed chili. If you want to make the tacos taste more fresh and earthy, spread and weigh the meat proportionally to the number of veggies in the shell.
