Birria de Chivo Estilo Jalisco (Mexican Braised Goat)
Goat meat marinated in a sauce with ancho chiles and spices, then slowly braised until soft. This traditional dish known as birria is always accompanied with refried beans and corn tortillas, and is normally served for special occasions.
Mutton Varuval (Malaysian Indian-Style Goat Curry)
This recipe is the star dish every Diwali at my Indian relative's home in Malaysia. I had to beg my husband's aunt to give up her secret recipe so we could make it for our wedding. Serve over rice or with Indian breads such as naan or chapati.
Goat Shoulder Braised with Prunes and Preserved Lemons
Goat is a delicious, mild-flavored meat that is overlooked in the U.S. This recipe results in a tender, savory dish that, while unusual, is still basically good old comfort food. This would be great to serve with Israeli-style couscous; alternatively, you could add some potato chunks to the pan halfway through the cooking.
Kochi Panthar Jhol (Goat Curry)
This dish is made from baby goat meat, and I love it as much in summer as in winter. This is because it is a soothing dish with an almost stew-like consistency while maintaining some spiciness in the flavor. It is a perfect comfort food that mom made for us when either we were sick and had lost appetite or feeling low due to a bad weather or something. It goes well with rice or chapatti.
