Looking for suggestions on where I can buy some goat to stew . . . thank everyone for taking the time to help out . . .

    I find the goat meat at Little India to be far superior to that of the Holy Land. Yeah, it probably comes in frozen, but it doesn't have that gamey flavor that Holy Land's has. Also, they never include those grisly pieces that basically have no meat.

    I made an awesome Jamaican goat curry with their meat a few months back at a dinner party and everyone raved about it.

    (Hint: cook your goat stew in a crock pot for at least 8 hours and it comes out super moist and tender.)

      I've only purchased goat at Holy Land a handful of times, but I've always enjoyed it. I'm not sure what you mean "gamey". I've found it "goatey", in that there's no mistaking it for something else. It's strongly flavored, which is what goat should be (?). It's been similar in flavor to goat I've had at area restaurants, all I have for a comparison.

        Well, I have only used goat for long-simmered curries and the "stock" that results from the goat that I have purchased from the Holy Land has a "off" flavor to it. Almost bitter. Now, I forgot to mention that I have not purchased meat from the Holy Land in over 2 years (I refuse to shop there after I witnessed very degrading behavior toward a few of their (apparently) non-Muslim female employees from the deli manager, but that is another topic altogether).

        Perhaps they have a new supplier now.

        I bought some recently at Holy Land on Central Ave, Minneapolis.

          Look up your city name and 'halal meat'. Any shop advertising as a halal meat provider is likely to have goat stew meat.
