We forgot the best bit...Delicious Deluxe Kid Chops

Earlier this week we were raving about how incredible the quality of the Kid Goat Meat is at the moment.

We mentioned bargain box savings in the form of:

However, we completely forgot to talk about these brilliant recipes to try with our Delicious Deluxe Kid Goat Chops.

 

Kid Goat Chops with Sweet Potato Mash and Juniper Red Wine Sauce

Ingredients:
350 g kid goat chops
to taste salt
1 shallot thinly sliced

Sweet Potato Mash:
1 large  sweet potato
5 ml olive oil
20 g  butter


Juniper Red Wine Sauce:
50 ml red wine
200 ml stock
4 juniper berries

 

Serves: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 220℃
  • Rub the sweet potato with the olive oil and salt and bake in the oven for about an hour until the centre is soft
  • When the potato is cooked scoop out the flesh and mash it with a fork or pass it through a sieve for an extra smooth mash, then add the butter and seasonings
  • Put a pan on a medium heat. Sear the chops on both sides until they are just cooked through. Then set aside to rest.
  • Deglaze the pan with red wine rubbing the bottom to dislodge all the bits. Then add the stock and juniper berries and reduce until you have a glossy sauce.
  • For the crispy shallots, heat 1cm of oil in a small pan until a slice of onion dropped in sizzles. Fry the onions in the oil until they are crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper
  • Serve the chops on top of the mash, garnished with crispy shallots and drizzled with the sauce

Recipe Notes:
If using stock from a cube you will not be able to thicken the sauce by reducing it as the stock will not contain the gelatin from the bones that real stock does. The sauce can be thickened by mixing cold oil with flour and adding this to the sauce and whisking.
