Goat chops

A colleague of mine recently moved the country to operate a farm. They grow farmstand crops like tomatoes, greens, garlic and melons, and they also raise chickens and goats. They have been supplying my favorite restaurant with goat meat this summer, though I haven’t been in when it’s been on the menu. So, it took matters into my own hands and purchased goat chops at the farmers’ market last week.

Bryan informed me he was NOT EATING GOAT, so I invited Tom over Thursday evening—thankfully, he was game. We marinated the chops in lemon juice, olive oil and fresh herbs, and grilled them until they were medium rare. They were mild and moist, and tasted very much like pork chops. We served them with fresh tomatoes and feta. Definitely something we’ll try again!

    Honestly, where’s Bryan’s sense of adventure? Goat and lamb are delicious, and goat is a very efficient meat source. They turn low-value vegetation into meat. In certain countries, people eat goat as their comfort food and would rather have that than chocolate. I wouldn’t go that far, myself…

    Forgive me if I don’t invite you over if we ever get one as a pet. 🙂
