Be careful when shopping for goat meat the older the goat the gamier it will taste and imported and frozen goat are not the best choice.
The best is organic or fresh from the butcher- it is lean and flavorful. If purchasing from a farm – watch out for the male goat, It has a strong gamey taste. I usually go for the female ones.
