Balsamic Smoked Goat With Persian Blue Salt!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Happy Friday Great Cookies!! 

 

I stopped at a different store than my norm yesterday and the fish was terrible, and yet some mysterious frozen chopped up goat meat was there - looking rather lonely - and so I brought it home and thawed it in the fridge overnight...

 

 

I think they may be some chopped shoulder, a bit of shank, and somewhere between...

 

 

I set one aside for the dogs to share - and thus got all three of their showers done (the goat being the reward)!

 

 

And I poured balsamin vinegar and grapeseed oil over them...

 

That went in the fridge for two hours, when I tossed it around some and then pushed it back in the fridge for two more hours...

 

 

Then I got those and some portabella caps (which I poured some of the marinade onto) ready for my little gas smoker...

 

 

 

with pistachio shells used as smoking chips and at about 300 degrees for 25 minutes...

 

 

 

I put the goat "cubes" onto a grill grate atop the smoker, that I sprayed with grapeseed oil, and then the mushrooms along the sides...

 

 

 

Meanwhile, I'd bought some zuke & yellow squash strands or "zoodles" or whatever they are... (and now I must go get some apparatus as to do that myself, as I loved them)!

 

 

and I chopped shallots and tomatoes...

 

 

and fresh basil...

 

 

and snitched at THAT combo raw, while waiting for the smoker...

 

 

and when the food came off the smoker it smelled terrific!

 

 

 

and I dropped the veggies into a hot pan for a few minutes and warmed them up...

 

 

 

 

and I assembled everything and poured as much Tunisian olive oil as I could, all over everything...

 

 

and ground some fresh black pepper and also ground some Blue Persian Salt!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the flavor was terrific and I scraped each little piece and bone and scooped some marrow out of one little piece and loved it, and it all was really nice!

 

 

 

 

As a woman who loves RAW and COLD food the most, I would leave those veggies raw next time and not heat them but they were delicious, just not COLD the way I love. But it was very tasty, and a wonderful unplanned meal, seeing as I went to the store looking for fish!

 

 

 

Gorgeous glazy tasting goat!!! The balsamic flavor was really there and helped soften the meat!

 

 

The meat was really lovely and the Blue Persian Salt (more of a finishing salt) is delicious and I had really picked that up for my spicy strawberry dessert tomorrow (when hosting company) but used some of that great salt today and it was a treat!

 

 

 

Oh, and on a random note, no matter what mood anyone is in, if you can play the song "Counting Stars" by One Republic, I can guarantee you that it will change your whole day!!!

 

In fact, if anyone can sit still in their chair, for that song's duration and not get up and dance; I'd be downright shocked!

 

OK, (random I know, yet that song was playing while I was posting, and so I had to stop everything and get right up and dance!), and then had to share that, right along with my goat!!! How's that for too much information???

 

Alrighty then, HAPPY EASTER to all!!! Make your weekend delicious!!!!!!!

 

Thanks for checking out my GOAT!!!!!

 

Cheers! - Leah

Love the goat! Used to serve whole leg of goat at a restaurant where I worked a couple lifetimes ago. I was afraid to try it at first, but once I did it became a favorite. Always reminded of a cross between turkey and beef.

That is a toe tapping tune. I like it!

I'll see your Counting Stars and raise you one Old Black Rum

Nothing quite like a bunch of drunken, kilt wearing Newfie teenagers slam jigging at a Great Big Sea concert. It can be life changing :)
