Goat Shank Recipe

Goat shanks are a great meat to use for a variety of dishes. They can be prepared many different ways, from grilling to slow roasting. The method that I have used is slow roasting, and it really is delicious. To make the dish even more flavorful, I use a steamed rice and wilted greens accompaniment.

Slow roasting

Using a slow roasting method can make your meat tender, fall off the bone. It does this by melting the collagen within the meat. A traditional recipe calls for a combination of olive oil, lemon juice and salt. However, you can use any marinade you desire.

The secret to a good leg of goat is to cut the meat off the bone. This can be done in a non-stick pan or by using a heat plate.

You should also add a lot of garlic to your leg of goat. Garlic is full of antioxidants and contains a chemical that helps to make the meat tender.

Alternatively, you could use papaya seeds. These are nature’s miracle. They are packed with essential oils and can help make your leg of goat taste better.

In addition to the benefits of a slow roasting method, it does not require an oven thermometer. Another advantage is that you can stir your meat halfway through the cooking process.

You can also serve your slow roasted leg of goat with rice or vermicelli. Depending on your preference, you can add herbs and spices to the dish. Ideally, you would want to cook your leg of goat at a low temperature.

You can also try baking your leg of goat in a non-stick frying pan. You will need to add water to the pan so that it is half full. Once it is cooked, you can transfer it to the oven and roast it.

Some recipes recommend that you leave your leg of goat in the oven for seven hours. If you have to leave it for longer, don’t forget to stir it occasionally.

When making a recipe using the “slow roasting method”, it is best to have a large pot. Having a heavy pot will help you achieve crisp edges.

Make sure to prepare your ingredients early. It takes about 12 hours for the wine to soak into the meat. For added flavor, you can also add beets or potatoes to the pot.

Although it may take more time, it is well worth the effort. You will be rewarded with a meal that is juicier, more flavorful, and even tastier than you imagined.


Goat shank is one of the more underrated cuts of meat. Its earthy flavor makes it a perfect dish to braise. You can braise goat in a variety of ways and enjoy this delicious treat in tacos, burgers or stews.

You can cook a roast with spices or marinate with cumin, coriander, and vinegar before you put the shank in the oven. You can also use a skillet to cook the shanks. When cooking, you will want to brown the shanks all sides so that they are cooked. Then, you can transfer the meat to a plate.

In addition, you can make a casserole with goat shank. To do this, you will need to coat the meat with spices, herbs, and pepper. You can serve the dish with fresh herbs and onions.

Before cooking, you should remove the shanks from the refrigerator and let them cool down. You can then cut them into chunks. A good recipe should include two hours of baking time.

Whether you are using a pot or a skillet, you will need to saute the garlic. This should take approximately two minutes. Once the garlic is browned, you will need to add the bay leaves and carrots. After these vegetables are soft, you will want to add the tomatoes. Make sure the juices from the tomatoes are incorporated into the sauce.

If you want to add other flavors, you can try adding obe ata or spices. Some of the flavors you can use include cinnamon, turmeric, and red pepper flakes.

When you are ready to serve, remove the shanks from the oven. If you do not want to wait, you can simply pull the meat off the bone and serve it on a bed of rice or couscous. Or you can make tacos with the goat, topped with onions and cilantro.

Another great recipe is Persian biryani. For this dish, you will need a heavy pot. Place the pan over medium-high heat. Add a couple tablespoons of canola oil. Allow the oil to shimmer before adding the shanks.


Grilling goat shank is a great way to serve the meat. This lean cut is rich in protein and vitamins. The best part is that it can be cooked in a variety of different ways. From grilled to braised to slow roasted, you can create an array of delicious meals with this meat.

To begin, make sure that your charcoal grill is heated. A charcoal grill will provide a more even temperature than a gas grill. It is also much easier to manage.

Next, prepare your marinade. You can use a mix of olive oil, garlic, and salt. For added flavor, you can add herbs and spices. Try adding cinnamon, cumin, and coriander powder. If you want to add a spicy kick, you can stir in red pepper flakes.

After marinating, remove the meat from the marinade. You can also marinate smaller pieces of meat in aluminum foil. This will keep the small pieces from drying out.

After cooking the marinated goat, let it cool before handling it. Let the meat rest for at least five to seven minutes before slicing it.

You can serve your meat with a side of soft roasted vegetables. You can top it with cilantro and onion. Alternatively, you can serve it with babaganoush, tzatziki, or pomegranate arils.

Goat shanks are also great when braised. This method will give your meat a wonderful texture. When cooking, you can try using garlic, onions, tomatoes, and spices. Make sure to adjust your heat as necessary to avoid overbrowning.

A braised goat shank is also good served on tacos. Depending on the size of your tortillas, you can either place the meat on both sides or just the center. You can also grate fresh lime or lemon juice over the meat to add a refreshing flavor.

Finally, make sure that you bring your goat out of the fridge at least an hour before you grill it. Leaving it in the fridge will result in a mushy meat. Bringing the meat to room temperature will ensure that it will be more juicy and tender.

Serve with steamed rice and wilted greens

When you serve goat shank with steamed rice and wilted greens, you’re giving your guests a meal that has a lot of flavor. This recipe is easy to follow and perfect for a family or party. It can be served as a main dish or side.

Begin by boiling the water and eggs together for 5 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water and let cool for about 5 minutes. Then peel them and cut them lengthwise. You can either keep them in the hot water to prevent them from going brown, or place them in a pan with warm water to help them peel.

After the eggs have cooled, remove the skin and place them in the pot of water. Add salt, if you’d like. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for 5 minutes before you drain them.

In a medium-sized pot, add the rice and 1 and 1/2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Let the rice cook for about 20 minutes. If you want to make the dish a bit more creamy, you can add a pinch of fresh ground pepper.

Wilted greens can be paired with a variety of meats and vegetables. Chicken is popular, but you can also serve mashed potatoes, polenta, or freekah with your lamb. Alternatively, you can serve it with ramen, lo mein, or zoodles.

The recipe is easily customizable, so feel free to tweak it to suit your tastes. You can even add a little extra olive oil to the pan. For a more hearty dish, serve it with bacon. Or try it with Greek spinach, a delicious vegetable that packs a lot of nutrients into its leaves. Serve it as a side dish for a dinner for four, or as a vegetarian main for six.

As you’re serving this meal, you can make the rice and wilted greens in advance. This allows you to reheat them if necessary. Also, you can add a sprinkle of Parmesan or crumbled feta to the rice and serve it as a side.
