camel and goat meat [Moved from Midwest Board]


I've been intrigued by the signs for exotic meats like camel and goat outside of local Halal butcher shops. I'd love to try them, but I'd like to have a sense of what I'm getting and how to use it before I plunk down my money. For those of you who have tried either one of them, what do they taste like? And how are they best prepared? Thanks!

  1. Yeah. No camels up north here, but goat is a good meat experience - i like it.Close to Venison. Look for West indian recipes. I'm curious about llama, alpaca, emu and ostrich. Never tried those - any reports?

    1. In India, when a menu says "mutton", it is often goat. It makes a nice curry--also had a braised baby goat in Greece that was delicious. It's sometimes available in Mexican restaurants in South Texas as cabrito.
