Prime Meat Goat leg joint approx 3kg in weight

SKU: 3003 Category:


A Whole Prime Meat Goat Leg, approx 3Kg – ideal for slow roasting in wine or braised in stock. Leg is the leanest part of the goat and is less than 2% fat, this is why this cut is so popular to eat. This cut comes from mature goat so this is the equivalent of mutton rather than lamb – goat doesn’t get any tastier than this.

Recipe Suggestion: Slow Roasted Goat Leg

Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 5 hours
Serves: 6-8

3Kg goat leg
1 pound of frozen peach slices
2 organic apples
1 meyers lemon
pink peppercorn, freshly ground
coarse celtic sea salt
2 cups white wine



  1. The morning before roasting defrost the goat leg. Defrost the peaches too.
  2. At night put the leg on a cookie sheet (will probably not fit in a standard pan) laying it on a couple of long pieces of aluminium foil, so it can be easily wrapped.
  3. Zest the meyer lemon and spread the zest on the leg.
  4. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper, then lay peaches on top and around the leg.
  5. Core and coarsely chop apples and lay on the meat also.
  6. Wrap tightly with the foil, and place back in the refrigerator overnight.

The roast

  1. On the next day, take out meat from the refrigerator about 3 hours before roasting, to bring to room temperature.
  2. Unwrap the leg, and lay back on the cookie sheet (or roasting pan if you have one large enough).
  3. Lay marinade around it.
  4. Pour one cup of wine on the cookie sheet.
  5. Cover the leg very loosely with the foil, to create a sort of tent.
  6. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.
  7. Place the leg in the oven and reduce temperature immediately to 200 degrees.
  8. Roast the leg for about ⅚ hours, checking that when the fluid is completely absorbed you refill it with the second cup of wine.
  9. When the meat reaches internal temperature of 120 degrees turn on the broiler on high and REMOVE foil.
  10. The meat should brown nicely on the top.
  11. When the meat reaches 125 degrees internal temperature remove from the oven.
  12. Remove the leg from the oven and cover with foil and a towel to keep warm.
  13. Let rest for about 15 minutes, then slice against the grain at an angle.
  14. You can use the pan drippings, if not burnt, to reduce with ½ cup white wine for a quick sauce.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Goat legs need to be braised rather than harsh roasted, like a brisket joint and the meat will fall apart off the bone, cook in wine, stock and onions.
