How to make it

  • Marinade
  • 1. The day before you are going to roast, defrost the peaches and the goat leg.
  • 2. When defrosted, put the leg in a roasting pan or on a cookie sheet laying it on a couple of long pieces of aluminum foil, so it can be easily wrapped.
  • 3. Zest the lemon and spread the zest on the leg.
  • 4. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper, then lay peaches on top and around the leg. See Photo
  • 5. Core and thinly slice apples and lay on the meat also.
  • 6. Wrap tightly with the foil, and place back in the refrigerator overnight.
  • The roast
  • 7. On roasting day, take the meat from the refrigerator about 3 hours before roasting, bring to room temperature.
  • 8. Unwrap the leg, and lay back on the cookie sheet (or roasting pan if you have one large enough).
  • 9. Lay marinade on and around it.
  • 10. Pour one cup of wine over the leg.
  • 11. Cover the leg very loosely with the foil, to create a sort of tent.
  • 12. Pre-heat oven to 250 F (120 C).
  • 13. Place the leg in the oven and reduce temperature to 200 F (93 C).
  • 14. Roast the leg for about 5 - 6 hours, check that when the liquid is absorbed you refill it with the second cup of wine.
  • 15. When the meat reaches an internal temperature of 120 F (47 C) turn the broiler on high and remove foil.
  • 16. The meat should brown nicely on the top.
  • 17. When the meat reaches 125 F (52 C) internal temperature remove from the oven.
  • 18. Cover with foil and a towel to keep warm.
  • 19. Let rest for about 15 minutes, then slice against the grain at an angle. See Photo
  • 20. You can use the pan drippings, if not burnt (they weren’t) to reduce with ½ cup white wine for a quick sauce.
  • Okay, we have 4 – 5 lbs. (about 2 kg.) of nicely cooked, melt in your mouth goat that needs some back-up. Mashed spuds cause the pan drippings will make fab gravy. A really robust lettuce salad, with tomato, broccoli, bell pepper, mushrooms, and, maybe, garbanzo beans seems right See Photo. Life is not good without a truly fab, crusty and chewy bread See Photo. Life is even worse without a great vino like a 2011 Mt See Photo. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon. Now we are Living la Dolce Vita.
