News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. July 7, 2017: One of my favorite meats to BBQ in the summer is goat meat. Goat meat is a staple in Caribbean cuisine, but it is mostly curried or stewed.
Goat meat has a unique flavor that is further enhanced by the smoke from the coals when grilled or BBQed. The following is my recipe for BBQ Goat Meat. I hope you enjoy it.
5 lbs Goat Meat (leg of Goat cut in 2 inch squares)
2 tsp salt
3 tsp Black Pepper
2 large onions
3 cloves of Garlic
2 sprigs of Thyme
1/2 lb scallion
Bamboo Skewers (soaked in water for 4 hours)
Wash goat meat with limes.
Combine all the seasonings and marinate meat overnight in fridge.
Steam goat meat with marinade until tender. Allow to cool. Remove all the bones from the meat.
Light the charcoal grill.
Using soaked bamboo skewers, thread the meat on the skewers and put on them over smoking coals. Do not burn.
Add Homemade BBQ sauce.
Continue to grill and add sauce for about 10 minutes.
