Goat Steak


Finally getting around to post our new-year dinner :).

My husband loves eating steaks, however, my meat choices are limited to the traditional bong palate. Hence we cannot go out eating steak. So for this new year I made goat-steak at home.

We also use this as a common healthy yet tasty dinner option. I know that Goat and healthy is already raising some eyebrows. We were raised identifying goat with red-meat and something which is unhealthy and to be avoided. However, this is a total myth, goat is actually more healthy than chicken and is definitely not among the real red-meats (beef). To debunk this theory let me put the nutrition values of goat (left) and chicken with skin(right) side by side (source

Isn’t it an eye opener that chicken is 80% more in calorie and 6 times more in fat?

Leaving calories and fats aside, lets come to the more interesting things. Goat steak is yum :) as my daughter calls it. Also this recipe works equally well with Lamb steak.


  1. 4 medium sized goat steaks
  2. 1tbsp. chopped garlic
  3. 1tsp. chopped ginger
  4. 2tbsp. plain yogurt
  5. 1tsp. chopped mint leaves
  6. 1tsp. dried basil
  7. 1tsp. cumin powder
  8. 1/2tsp. dried red chili flakes
  9. 1tsp. black pepper powder
  10. 1tsp. dark soya sauce
  11. Juice of one lime
  12. 1/2 cup red wine
  13. Cooking spray (or cooking oil)
  14. Salt

Apply cooking spray on the skillet and place the steaks in a single layer. Keep the marinade reserved for sauce. Grill the steaks on medium high heat for 15 minutes and then flip them over. Again apply some cooking spray all over and grill for another 15 minutes.

In the meantime make the sauce. Take a pan and transfer the left over marinade into it. Add wine and cook it over medium heat till it thickens.

Place the grilled steaks on a serving plate and drizzle some sauce over to keep them moist. Garnish with little sour cream or Greek yogurt of your choice.
