NIGERIAN GOAT MEAT STEAK
NIGERIAN GOAT MEAT STEAK ESPECIALLY WITH THE SKIN ON ARE COMPARATIVELY VERY TASTY AND SUCCULENT!
Nigerian goats especially those reared in the villages and fed with natural vegetables, leaves and grasses. They are always with beautiful skins and well fed. The goats in Igbo land are allowed to roam about freely eating palm leaves, or palm fronds; from some plants,as well as some herbs and tender leaves. They are organically reared unlike some mountain goats bought and sold in the Northern part of Nigeria.
Frankly speaking, you ca not compare the goats from the Northern Nigeria with the local goats. The local goats are relatively cheaper.
The goats from the Northern Nigeria have names like 'Dankasa'and cost about 20,000 Naira which is about (£85) while the ones from
mainly Igbo land, are nicknamed 'Uwaonye' and cost about 12,000 Naira (£45). The meat from Dankasa has less fat compared with the local goats.
I love the local goat's meat especially those cooked or roasted with their skins on! I can't express how juicy, tasty, succulent and mouth-watering these local goat meat can be when they are cooked, roasted or grilled. It is heaven on earth and I'm always on cloud Nine when eating the steak!
Never mind using fork and knife, I normally use my hands in eating the steak and they can be finger-licking too.
You dare not mention eating goat meat with their skins on in UK because it is tabooed! Even the, you can't compare Nigerian goat meat with the ones in UK and Europe. They are not organic. Some years ago we use to buy goat meat with their skins on but not anymore!
