Whole Goat

T4 Ranch El Rancho Grande Roast Cabrito

Gourmet Cabrito

  • Place one kid goat with hams and shoulders on bottom of roasting rack top with the ribs and backstrap or tenderloin. Make a basting sauce of the following: One kid goat
  • 1 stick of butter, we prefer unsalted butter for the sweet taste 
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced 
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt Juice of one lime 
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce 
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce 1 Tablespoon Celery Salt 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon each, Rosemary, Basil, Savory and Oregano 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper 

Melt butter in microwave and add the garlic, salt and lime juice. Heat thoroughly in microwave. Add the rest of the ingredients. Pour over cabrito and roast for about 3-4 hours covered with foil, basting often with the sauce in the roasting pan. After 4 hours, uncover and baste thoroughly and cook in oven an additional 45 minutes to 1 hour. This will cause the meat to crust over. Baste with the sauce as often as you can. This will keep the meat from drying out. Carve and serve with fresh pico de gallo and sliced avocado.

Choose a Caribbean curry mix if possible for this dish. Trim any fat off the meat and then cut the meat into small pieces. Traditionally the bones are left in the curry to contribute flavor and nutrition. Rub the meat in lemon juice and then combine with the onion, garlic and spices. Leave covered in the refrigerator overnight (or at least a couple of hours). 

Heat oil in a skillet or dutch oven over medium heat and brown the meat mixture. Add the water and simmer for 1 hour. Correct seasonings as needed and continue cooking for about another half hour until tender. Add more water as needed. Potatoes and/or cho-cho can be added in the last hour if you wish.

Seco de Chivo

Goat Jerky

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil 
  • Achiote (annatto seeds), optional for color 
  • 3/4 cups red onion, chopped 
  • 3 cloved garlic, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup green peppers. chopped 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground 
  • 1 hot pepper, chopped and seeds removed (preferably an aji or serrano) 
  • 1 1/2 pounds of tomatoes, fresh or canned  
  • 12 ounces of beer  
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano 
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or honey 
  • 1 stalk of celery with leaves, chopped 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves, ground 
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice, ground 
  • salt to taste 
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro, minced

In a large skillet or Dutch oven fry two or three annatto seeds in the oil until the oil turns red. Remove the seeds and add the meat and sear at high heat until lightly browned. Reduce the heat and add the onion, garlic, green peppers, cumin, and pepper. 

Cook slowly until the onions are transparent but not browned. Liquefy the hot pepper with the tomatoes and beer to form a salsa. Add this salsa to the meat along with the sugar or honey, oregano, clove, allspice and celery. If the meat is not covered with liquid add water to cover. Gently bring to a boil and then reduce heat. 

Continue cooking 1 or 2 more hours until meat is tender. Stir occasionally and add water as necessary to keep meat from sticking to pot. Taste and adjust spices as desired. Add the cilantro. Serve with Spanish rice. 


  • 1 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce2 Tsbs. Brown Sugar
  • 2 large Cloves Garlic 

Mix all liquids together, stir in brown sugar until dissolved. Crush the Garlic and add to liquid - stir.

Add thinly sliced chevon - 1/8" to 1/4" thick.

Trim off all Fat (since fat can cause spoilage of your jerky). Add meat to marinade mixture. let set, covered in the frig., for at least 6 hours Stir meat occasionally to ensure all meat is well marinated 

Now to dehydrate-

you can place in oven at 150 degrees F. - No Higher - you want to dry it, not cook it.  Put jerky strips on a cooling rack and then place rack on a cookie sheet in the middle of the oven.  Turn jerky approx. every 2 hrs to ensure even drying. Using the oven it can take 6-8 hrs to dry thoroughly. 

I use an inexpensive food dehydrator (Mr. Coffee - motor driven fan, 5 stackable trays) which takes only 4-6 hours depending on the meats thickness. 

You can store the jerky in an air tight container for 5 days (assuming the family doesn't eat it the first day!) or you can refrigerate for 1 wk. or freeze for a month or more.

  • 1 can tomato paste (6 ounce) 
  • 1 cup white wine

Melt butter in stew pan or Dutch oven; add meat, onion, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper; brown over medium fire, stirring constantly. The gentle braising of the meat is the secret to success with this recipe.

This goat stew is the basis for a wide variety of combinations with fresh or frozen vegetables. 

Potatoes: Wash and peel 12 small potatoes, brown them lightly in butter, and add to stew. Simmer until the potatoes are tender and sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.  Almost any other vegetable can be added to the basic recipe.

Jerked Leg of Goat

  • 6 pounds deboned goat leg cut in chunks 
  • 2 teaspoons salt 
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 
  • 5 small hot chili peppers 
  • 10 cloves garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon mexican oregano 
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves 
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds 
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground 
  • 8 cooked tomatillos 
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds, walnuts, orpinenuts 
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 pound of ripe tomatoes, chopped 
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped 
  • 1 cup green onions, minced 
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, minced 
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomatillos, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, minced (optional) 
  • 1 clove garlic minced 
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seed, ground salt to taste

Sprinkle the meat with salt and vinegar. Cover and chill overnight or for at least a couple of hours. Make a paste in a blender or food processor of the chili peppers, garlic, oregano, cloves, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, tomatillos, nuts, and oil. To be on the safe side, put your cloves in first to make sure they do get broken up some. The cumin seeds do not have to get completely ground, but you want them at least partially broken up as well. Smear the paste all over the boned meat and bake in a well oiled dutch oven or roasting pan covered at 350 F for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until tender. Put the ripe tomatos, green pepper, green onions, cilantro, coriander, and fresh tomatillos in a lightly oiled sauce pan and cook aver low heat until starting to simmer. Remove from heat. When the meat is done, shread the meat and serve in warm flour tortillas topped with the salsa. 


  • 1 leg of goat with bone in
  • 1 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped 
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (or 2tablespoons dried leaves) 
  • 2 teaspoons salt 
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground pimiento (allspice) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce 
  • 1 very hot pepper, chopped, 
  • or teaspoon hot pepper oil 

Mix or puree together the onions, garlic, soy sauce, and spices to form a paste. Pierce the leg of goat all over and rub the paste all over the meat. Any unused paste (also known as "jerk rub" can be stored in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to a month for later use). Cover or wrap in foil and refrigerate overnight to allow spices to penetrate meat.

 Preheat the oven to 400 F. Sear the meat loosely covered with foil in a roasting pan at 400 F for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 F. Roast meat for another hour or two depending on weight() until the internal temperature reaches 150 to 160 F. Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes of cooking. 

If you use a tougher cut such as a neck roast for cooking, plan on a longer cooking time and on marinating the meat in a mixture of beer and lemon juice overnight. Put the jerk rub on it in the morning and then cook in the afternoon

From Jackie Clark, Portales New Mexico

  • Goat steaks
  • Lemon-pepper marinade
  • 1/4 pound butter or margarine

Sprinkle steaks on both sides with lemon-pepper marinade. Heat a large cast-iron skillet until hot enough to melt butter, and slice several chunks of butter or margarine into skillet to melt. As soon as butter is melted, drop steaks into skillet. Cook only about a minute on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Be careful not to overcook. Add more butter as needed to keep the meat from sticking.

  • Tip: Serve with wild rice
