Smoked Curried Goat

Phyllis Williams  


25 lbs chevon/goat
4 onion
3/4 cup curry powder
1 garlic
1 tbsp salt
2 habanera

1 cup oil
2 cup chicken stock
2 cup cider vinegar
1 1/2 cup oil
1 cup water
2 tbsp curry powder

The night before you plan to barbecue, prepare the paste in a food processor. First process the onions, curry, garlic, salt and habaneros until finely chopped. Then add the oil, processing until the mixture forms a thick paste. This can be done in two batches if needed.

Wearing rubber gloves, rub the paste over the goat, covering the meat evenly. Place the goat in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.

 Before you begin to barbecue, remove the goat from the refrigerator and let it sit, covered, at room temperature for 45 minutes.
Prepare the smoker for barbecuing, bringing the temperature to 200 to 220 ░F.
For mop mix together the stock, vinegar, oil, water, and curry powder in a saucepan and warm the liquid over low heat.
Transfer the goat to the smoker.  Cook for about 1-╝ hours per pound of weight for each quarter. The forequarters will be done earlier than the hindquarters, which may take 10 hours or longer, depending on size.
In a wood-burning pit, turn the meat and drizzle the mop over it every 30 minutes.
In other styles of smokers, baste as appropriate and turn the meat at the same time. When the meat is done, remove it from the smoker, and allow it to sit for 15 minutes before serving. Slice or shred the meat and serve with barbecue sauce.

Alva's Goat Meat Chili

Alva Irish


6 Guajillo peppers, dried, whole
3 Pasilla peppers, dried, whole.
4 cans (large) of Tomato sauce (one that is made of just tomatoes)
Bragg's amino acid liquid (This acts as the salt, and is good for you)

3 Tablespoons of sugar.
2 1/2 pounds of Goat Hamburger meat.
Adolph's meat tenderizer, or 1/2 papaya, seeded and chopped fine.
1/4 cup olive oil
Enough water to cover the meat by 2"

Fry the meat in the oil until brown in a deep pot, mashing it as it fries so
it is separated. Do not drain.  Pour almost all the water over the meat, saving out 2 cups.  Add the meat tenderizer or the Papaya (better) to the mix and let boil on high.
Take the stems off the peppers and discard. Open them up and empty the seeds, discard or save to plant. (They will grow!) Place all the torn peppers into a blender with the water, and blend until the liquid is completely emulsified.  Pour into the boiling meat pot, along with the canned tomato sauce (or you can make it using fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped).  Add 3 Tablespoons of Bragg's Liquid aminos. This tastes like Beef broth. Add the sugar. Turn the pot down to simmer, and leave it until it is reduced to your liking. Serve over rice, or spaghetti (spaghetti red), macaroni, rotini, penne, whatever.  This Chili is NOT HOT.
If you want more Heat, add Ancho Peppers, Jalapenos, or Cayennes, or even Habaneros to the mix.
To make Enchiladas with it, Heat corn tortillas a little in the microwave, covered with a paper towel, so they soften.  Chop a large onion very fine.
Put grated Cheddar cheese and the onion into each of them, and roll, lining them up in a flat pan as you go.  Brush them thoroughly with Olive oil, then pour over all, some of the chili you just made.  Over all that, sprinkle more cheese (your choice of kind) and bake until brown and bubbly.
You could make a Tamale pie:
Take whole corn tortillas, and some cheese and chopped onions. In a greased deep dish, alternate tortillas, with cheese and chili, top with a tortilla, oiled, and cheese, and bake until brown and bubbly.

In a Large nonreactive skillet, heat the oil over Medium heat and cook the onions, garlic, peppers, salt and pepper about 5 minutes (or until soft).
Place in a food processor fitted with the metal blade.  Add the oregano, tomato sauce, and olives.  Process until finely chopped.  Place the mixture in the skillet with the ground Goat, raisins (optional) and the Wine.

Simmer about 20 Minutes, breaking up the ground Goat/Lamb as it cooks.
Cook until the pan is nearly dry. (Filling should not be runny). Add the Hot Sauce and Salt (to taste).  Let Cool...

To Make the Pastry:
Shift 5 Cups of flour with baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Combine 1/3 Cup of Water and the 3/4 Cup of Sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a Boil and cook until the Sugar is dissolved. Let it Cool...

When the syrup is Cool, Add it along with the eggs, butter, oil and wine
to the Flour Mixture.  With a Fork, work ingredients together without beating or mixing. Dough is ready when all the ingredients are combined and dough is not sticky.(Dough may be crumbly but will hold
together when pressed).

When the Filling is Cool, Shape Empanadas.  Spread Flour on a work surface. Take about a Golf Ball sized piece of dough and roll it out into a 5-6 inch circle (Depending on how you putter around and the size of your Big-EYEdeas) about 1/8 inch thick.

Take 1 Tablespoon filling (drain filling as you measure if it is at all runny) and place the filling in the middle of one-half of a pastry round. Brush the edge with water. Fold other half over filling to make a half-moon (not shooting moons over Miami in the dark of the moon) and then press to seal the edge. Use the tines of a fork to seal the edge. Trim away any pastry imperfections to make a perfect half moon shape (when shooting moons there has never been found a perfect one on SoBe).

Repeat the Process, rerolling scraps and until all the filling and pastry is used up. (not film required for these)

To Bake:
Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

To Deep Fry:
Heat 2-3 inches of Oil to 375 degrees in a suacepan and fry the empanadas a few 2-3 at a time for about 2-3 minutes per side
or until a golden Brown.. Makes about 30 Empanadas (but it is all according how Big Your Eyes are when your are Puttering around, sizing up the golf Balls and the Mooons).

Well, this has been handed down and is an authentic recipe. Rochi, says the 'difference' in these
empanadas are the wine in the filling and the sugar syrup that is in the dough.

Oven Dried Goat Meat Jerky

Alva Irish  



4 lbs. lean Kid Meat
5 Tbs. soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke

How to Prepare:

Combine all ingredients except meat in a large bowl.  Cut meat into very thin slices, cutting with the grain if possible.  Marinate meat in liquid about 1 hour, until the liquid has been absorbed.  Remove meat from marinade and pat it dry with paper towels.

Place meat slices on oven racks so they are not touching each other.
Dry in an oven for about 5-7 hours, until meat takes on a brown color and
a hard, dry appearance and texture.  Let cool to room temperature and store in an airtight jar.
