sounds really delicious GCG - I am yet to wade into goat territory, it looks quite 'boney' from what I saw at the butcher - not really like steaks or roasts, but loads of bones and a little meat...

Well I know the lady who raises goats and I've been to her farm so I know the goats are grass fed.  Good lamb is hard to find here and horribly expensive if you can. Beef is a neutral and grassfed is also hard to find. These goats are a breed specifically bred for meat called Boer. They are the size of a sheep.

Oooh, have to try this! Haven't found anyone selling goat here, but we can get lamb or grass-fed beef and using gum-free greek yogurt makes it even better. Thanks for the recipe GCG, I love biryani.
