so i'm on the way back from returning the rented tux, and what strikes my
eye but a nice little jamaican cafeteria. so i get a plate of curried goat
to go. man, this stuff is delicious, and less than half the points of a
comparable beef or pork dish. plain cooked goat is just 3 points for 4
ounces, less than chicken and just slightly more than fish. my project for
the weekend is to try and duplicate my late mom's hungarian veal stew (stew
with apricots in it) with goat.

i'm surprised no one is pushing this stuff. barbecue goat. goatburgers.
sloppy goat. jerk goat and mescalin wrap. between the goat cheese and now
the actual goat, i can actually participate in the mammal world.

When I was in Guadeloupe in September '99, I saw "messieurs et Mesdames
chevres" all over the island. I ate shark while I was there, but never
goat!

Where did you ever find the point guidelines for goat? Now I know what
the "Gee" stands for!

Andy,

Here in okie land we been eatin BBQ goat for eons. On a bun....mmmmmm.
Deer tastes alot like goat (venison). Mom used to make BBQ sandwiches out
of it all the time. There was a black man who made the best...Sam's
BBQ.....he passed away and we have never had good BBQ goat like that since!
Lots of people around here eat it...and like I tell hubby...a deer is just a
glorified goat....just about the same critter.

Congrats on your find!

it's in the complete food guide -- once for plain goat (which they list at
1 point per ounce, but the usda database applied to the ww slide rule for a
portion (4 oz of goat is a portion) comes out to 3 points. it's in again
under ethnic specialties; island curried goat is 5 points for 4 ounces. i
didn't have any of the gravy poured over my goat, so i counted it as 4
points.

Hi Andy!

You might be interested to hear about a local Mexican Restaurant here in the
Dallas Ft Worth Area...they have served Goat (called "Cabrito" in Spanish, for
years.....(roasted.......looks good, never ate it since I mainly am a
"chickentarian"...not much meat at all). I guess the idea of goat has been
around for a long time....! We also have a Native American restaurant where
you can eat Elk and Buffalo and such...

Also, I am a returning member to the NG, havent rejoined WW yet as I am
awaiting recovery from surgery to be able to drive, but reading your posts
makes this place more fun! Thanks!

I like goat that has been bar-b-qued in a pit. With all the veggies tucked
nicely in the belly and tied up! Wonderful!

Curried goat is popular in most Caribbean islands - I had it on St Lucia.

There are many meat bearing animals that produce lower fat meat than is
generally purveyed by the average supermarket. Look out for bison, ostrich
and kangaroo. These are beginning to appear in places like British Airways
first class cabin - I kid you not!

Would that make goat cheese lower in points as well?

What restaurants are you talking about? I am also in the Dfw area. Dad might
like to try the restaurant that serves goat, although he probably would not
be willing to pay for goat meat! (Po Boy food! And yes, he was raised a po
boy!) But I am mostly interested in the native restaurant. Where is it??
What's the name??

A running gag in our family has the punch line: "Please pass the Billy!" And
of course this comes from actual experiences, not just a joke.

I raised goats, and they will eat almost anything! They will and have eaten
the Poison Ivy off of my fence, however, they did not eat the Poke Salad out
of my yard. I knew right then that Poke Salad was not for human consumption
I don't care what anybody said!! LOL

Hi Mickie,
Sorry I took a while to respond, have not been on much lately.

You can get Cabrito (goat) at a restaurant called Cantina Laredo, there is one
on the famous Addison restaurant row (beltline road) or also at Preston and
Royal in NDallas.

Tenaya (www.tenaya.com) has the other exotic stuff...game, etc. In Irving near
Macarthur Blvd. I had chicken there though...LOL, while my buds had all those
other things!

Where in Ft Worth area are you? Nice to have someone local too...hoping to
begin WW next week once I am totally able to get around!

Jennifer
