cooking goat

At the farmer's market this weekend, I picked up frozen cubed goat meat for use in a curry - like this - http://www.otmslu.com/#!Chicken or Beef Roti/c16an

my question is, how long does goat typically need to cook? I don't believe the label says what cut of meat it is, just cubed goat.

  1. The meat will be like any other stew meat. 2-3 hours should get the meat to that tender place you're looking for.

    1. I think it may depend on the age of the goat. Friend made a Jamaican goat curry last weekend and he simmered the curry, after browning the meat first, for about an hour-and-a-half and it was perfectly tender.

      1. Here's another current thread which might help with ideas and timing http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9745....

        I also picked up frozen cubed goat meat this weekend and am wondering the same thing.

        1. I cook mine in the pressure cooker. The oldest toughest goat is tender in about 35 minutes.

            That's what I do too. About 30 minutes and it is as tender as anything you'll ever cook.

          2. I cook goat from 1 hour 15 mins to 1.5 hours.

            Some people just cook it till it is cooked through, but then it will be tough. Don't go more than 1.5 hours because it will fall apart after too long a simmer.
