“Goat Tacos”


I’m so excited to share the first of many cooking episodes here on this site. For a long time you’ve seen many posts here with step-by-step photos which take you through the recipes, but we’ve decided to spice things up around here and give some of the how-to’s in a video format for those of you who learn better this way. As always I’d love your feedback and questions in the comments section below. It is a work in progress, and like a fine venison back strap, it will get better with time.

Stay hungry my friends.

“Goat Tacos”


  • 1 pound goat meat
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • Creme fraiche
  • Scallions, sliced
  • Pickled carrots
  • Cilantro, freshly chopped
  • Lime wedges


  1. In a bowl combine the goat with the garlic, brown sugar, cumin, tequila, olive oil, and salt. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Heat a skillet on high heat and add the grape seed oil. Sear the goat meat quickly in the pan for about 3 minutes, turning regularly in the pan. They should be browned but still pink on the inside.
  3. Place several tablespoons of meat in a tortilla and garnish with your desired toppings.

  1. They look delicious! But I know I’ll never get my wife to eat them. She won’t even eat lamb. I used to get my goat fix from an Indian place around the corner, when my wife was out without me.

  2. When I played the video all I can hear is music.

  3. Love it Georgia! You sold me on the goat taco! Great job :)

    I think the videos are a good idea. The length of this one was just right. The sound was just a bit on the tinny side but I could hear all your commentary just fine. Some acoustics tuning in the kitchen might make a difference for the sound quality.

    Your commentary was a good mix of how to and taste bud adjectives. Nice work.

  5. Yummy! I can’t wait to try these bad boys out.

    Take the meat off the fire while building your taco. I was distracted by looking at the meat continuing to cook in the pan. Otherwise good video.

  7. Georgia…….love the video idea. Please keep them coming.
    As for your goat, I love goat meat……..and these taco’s were great. I will make these again.
    Thank you,

  8. You’ve totally inspired me to make something with goat. These look yummy and you’re adorable!

  9. Please, please dump the music! If you can’t, then half the volume so we can hear you over it. Thank you!

    I wish you would do more videos. That looks great but I think I will use some venison, because it’s in the freezer.
