WHAT IS CHEVON AND WHY SHOULD I EAT IT?
Chevon, or Goat Meat, is a delicious red meat that can be eaten stewed, baked, grilled, barbequed or made into sausage or jerky. Chevon can be eaten from any age of goat, depending upon your preference.
Chevon is popular because it is low in fat and cholesterol. It doesn’t have the gamey taste of venison. Goat Meat from a young goat resembles veal. Goat Meat from older goats is more like a beef/venison mixture but without all the calories. Most people prefer their Chevon from goats that are under one year of age due to it being more tender.
Chevon is lower in cholesterol than rabbit, venison or beef. The saturated fat in cooked goat meat is 40% less than that of chicken, even with the skin removed. It is 50-60% lower in fat than similarly prepared beef, but has the same or more protein content.
