Maple Glazed Goat Ribs Recipe

Goat meat has a rich and savoury flavour, similar to lamb yet slightly sweeter.  You may have experienced goat meat in the past that had a bit of a gamey flavour, but ours comes exclusively from young goats, and is mild yet highly flavourful.

A rack of goat gives you the most premium meat, equivalent to the prime rib on a side of beef.  You can roast the rack whole, then slice it into cutlets, to give you maximum flavour and juiciness.  This recipe includes a smokey rub and a maple glaze, for an extra-delicious crust.


  • Rack of pasture-raised Ontario goat ribs.
  • Rub:  1 Tbsp each — smoked paprika, garlic powder, dried onion, black pepper.  And 1 tsp sea salt.
  • Sauce:  rub ingredients + 2 Tbsp maple syrup.

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C).
  2. Pat ribs dry with a paper towel, and remove membrane.  Cover entire surface of ribs with the rub.
  3. Place in a baking dish, and add a little water to keep the ribs moist.  Cover with tin foil and bake for 3 hours.
  4. Brush with sauce, re-cover, and allow to rest for 10 — 15 minutes at room temperature.  Then slice into cutlets, halfway between each rib.
  5. Enjoy with your choice of side.  I chose lemon garlic asparagus + rosemary roasted russet potatoes.
