Now, I seek chivo, or goat meat.
Hey, I'm wondering who out there knows a good carneceria or what-have-you that sells goat meat? I thought I'd ask here before randomly asking at meat markets in pigeon spanish.
Where are you located? Most carnicerias have it and pretty much any will get it with a pre-order.
I just looked at the one next to Monte Alban yesterday, sure they are all over the city, and I am in West LA.
11927 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
Best thing to do is go to your favorite carniceria and pre-order it if they don't have it. I made Birria w/goat for Easter and I went to 4 different carnicerias and none of them had it (El Sereno, City Terrace, Boyle Heights areas). I thought all would have it in stock. Finally found it at El Super in Highland Park. I had to ask for it and they brought it out from the back, frozen.
I'm all for recs. for next time though!!
The stand at Farmers market is called Jimenez Family Farm the proprietors name is Marcie you can reach her at 805-350-0088. She sells goat and lamb. Call her in advance if you need something special. I was at her farm on Friday to Pick up a whole lamb for a dinner party I had on Saturday. She is very accommodating.
I've included some pictures of the goats, the lamb before putting on the spit and a picture of the goat when it was done.
It depends on which cut(s) you're after.
In my world, needing goat means needing to make a trip to Chino ~ Pick the one you want and they'll dress it out for you :-)
