Instructions / Storage

  • Upon arrival place immediately in the fridge
  • Kit will last 4-5 days in the fridge
  • All ingredients have to be refrigerated until cooking

To Make the Potstickers


  • House-made wonton wrappers
  • Beef & bone marrow filling
  • Cooking oil (not provided)
  • Potsticker dipping sauce
  • Pickled fresnos (optional)
  • 1. Remove wonton wrappers from the packaging, unstack them and place on a clean work surface.
  • 2. Fill a small bowl with cold water.
  • 3. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the potsticker filling in the center of each wonton wrapper, leaving a small border around the edges.
  • 4. Dip your finger in the water and wet one half of the outer edge of the wrapper (do not wet the entire outer edge or your wontons will get soggy).
  • 5. Fold the edges of your dumpling into one other, enclosing the filling and creating a half-moon shape.
  • 6. Gently pinch the edges together to seal in the filling.
  • 7. Heat a non-stick pan, or griddle if you have one, over medium-high heat and coat with a drizzle of cooking oil (canola or vegetable oil work great).
  • 8. Place your potstickers in an even layer in the pan, making sure they aren’t touching or they may stick.
  • 9. Cook, undisturbed, until the bottoms begin to turn golden brown, about 1 minute.
  • 10. Pour in about 3-4 tablespoons of water and cover completely (you can use a lid, another pan or baking sheet if you don’t have a tight-fitting lid). At this time the bottoms of your potstickers are continuing to crisp up while the water is steaming them.

Steph’s Note – the amount of water needed can vary based on the weather, humidity levels, etc. So, make sure to keep a close eye on your potstickers. If the water has evaporated before they are browned and cooked through, add in a few more drops.

  • 11. Continue cooking until the bottoms of the potstickers are crisp and deep golden brown and the wrappers turn opaque and are cooked through, about 2-3 minutes more.
  • 12. Transfer to a serving plate and drizzle over the dipping sauce, or serve it on the side.
  • 13. Sprinkle with pickled Fresnos, if desired.

To Make the Smashed Cucumber Salad


  • Persian cucumbers
  • Seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • Sesame oil
  • 1 packet turbinado sugar
  • Pickled fresnos
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Mint
  • Basil
  • 1. Trim the ends off of your cucumbers and cut in half.
  • 2. Place a large spatula or other flat-bottomed kitchen object (a pan works great) over top of one cucumber half.
  • 3. Smash down on the cucumber, breaking it into a few pieces and lighty smashing the flesh.
  • 4. Place smashed cucumber in a large bowl and repeat with remaining cucumber halves.
  • 5. Grab your container of seasoned rice wine vinegar and fill it to the top with water.
  • 6. Mix to combine.
  • 7. Pour the vinegar/water mixture over your smashed cucumbers.
  • 8. Let sit for about 30 (no more than 45 minutes), allowing your cucumbers to achieve a quick pickle.
  • 9. Drain the pickling liquid.
  • 10. Pour over a drizzle of your sesame oil (about 1 tablespoon), half of your sugar packet, a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds, some of the pickled fresnos and some torn leaves of fresh basil and mint.
  • 11. Toss until everything is well combined.
  • 12. Transfer to a serving bowl or individual plates and dig in!

To Make the Slap Noodles with Summer Veggies & Chili Vinaigrette

  • Slap noodle dough (leave at room temperature and make sure to keep covered and in oil before using)
  • Torpedo onion
  • Summer squash
  • Heirloom grape tomatoes
  • This Little Goat went to Hong Kong (a whole bottle!)
  • Cooking oil (not provided)
  • Pea tips
  • Pickled fresnos (optional)
  • Mint
  • Basil
  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2. Prep your veggies:
  • 3. Remove the green tip from the torpedo onion, cut in half lengthwise and slice crosswise into thin strips.
  • 4. Remove the ends from your squash, cut in half lengthwise and cut into thin half moons, about ¼-inch thick (if your yellow squash has one thinner half, cut that half into rounds to ensure all of your vegetables are around the same size so they cook evenly).
  • 5. Place onion and squash in a large mixing bowl along with the tomatoes.
  • 6. Pour over about ¼ cup of Hong Kong sauce and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt (about 1 teaspoon).
  • 7. Toss to combine.
  • 8. Roast your veggies: Spread vegetables in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • 9. Roast until tomatoes just begin to burst and squash and onion begin to color and soften, about 25 minutes (note – every oven is different so cooking times may vary).
  • 10. Next, slap your noodles: Grab one piece of your slap noodle dough (it should be at room temperature and still sitting in the oil).
  • 11. Flatten the dough slightly, then grab one end in each hand.
  • 12. Stretch out the dough and slap it up and down on your kitchen counter, creating a long, flat, wide strip of noodle (when finished they should be about 3-4 feet long!).
  • 13. Locate the center of your noodle, create a small hole with your finger and separate the dough down the middle into 2 thinner noodles.

Steph’s Note – this dough is very forgiving so you can leave your stretched-out noodles right on your kitchen counter or cutting board without having to worry about them sticking. And, don’t worry if your noodles aren’t perfect, they will taste delicious regardless!

  • 14. Cook your noodles: Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a boil.
  • 15. Fill a large bowl with ice water.
  • 16. Grab some tongs or a colander.
  • 17. Place noodles in boiling water and give them a stir to keep them from sticking together.
  • 18. Cook until noodles puff up and begin to float, about 1 ½ minutes.
  • 19. Using tongs, transfer cooked noodles to your bowl of ice water, or strain in a colander and transfer to the ice water bath (this will help your noodles stop cooking and remove some of the excess starch, which can cause your noodles to be gummy).
  • 20. Once your noodles are cold, spread on a serving plate and drizzle with a bit of oil to prevent them from sticking.
  • 21. Finish and serve: Coat a large non-stick pan (or wok if you have one) with about 2 tablespoons of cooking oil (canola or vegetable oil are preferred) and heat over high heat.
  • 21. If your noodles are still wet, dab them dry to prevent the oil from splattering.
  • 22. Add to your hot pan.
  • 23. Continue cooking, flipping occasionally, until your noodles are golden brown and beginning to crisp up, about 3 minutes.
  • 24. Roughly tear the pea tips and add to the pan, followed by a drizzle of Hong Kong sauce (you don’t need much since your veggies are already marinated).
  • 25. Add in the roasted veggies and toss to combine.
  • 26. Continue cooking for about 1-2 minutes more, allowing the flavors to meld.
  • 27. Transfer noodles to a serving plate or individual plates and top with some torn leaves of fresh mint and basil and pickled fresnos for a bit of heat.

To Make the Cocktail

  • Mix 1 part liquor of your choice with 2 parts Blueberry Yum Yum Cocktail Mix * Example: 1.5 oz liquor to 3 oz of mix

It was perfect! Arrived on time, easy to follow instructions and the freshest ingredients. The meal was a birthday surprise for my husband because we couldn’t get reservations at The Girl in the Goat when we visited Chicago a few years ago. And it was DELICIOUS!! I’m thinking of ordering the short rib meal for Fathers Day.
Michelle L. - East Northport, NY
We had a mix of seniors and youngsters and everyone said the Girl and the Goat pork shank was one of the best meals we've ever had. The pork fell off the bone, the sauces were delicious and the beans - the best. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Tasty recipe. Was a bit involved and challenging to follow but watching the Instagram live video helped

I just LOVED cooking with Stephanie Izard. The food was out of this world, easy to make and follow along with, too. Plus, it was great to hear Stephanie's cooking stories and travels around the world. I would definitely do another cook with her or any of the other amazing chefs on Goldbelly!
Jenny G. - Phoenix, AZ
All of the amazing sauces, the pre-made empanada dough and scallion pancake, the royal icing, the other measured ingredients...made for an incredible delicious and actually achievable meal! It's one of the best I've done. I really really really appreciated how everything was shipped. I also love Stephanie Izard and Girl & the Goat in general. Can't wait to do it again.

Melissa W. - Sylva, NC
The Meal Kits from the Girl and the Goat are literally one of the best things available online right now. We've done two regular meal kits and two cook alongs, and we can't get enough of what Stephanie and her team creates. They have all been spectacular. Well thought out. Beautifully packaged. Challenging enough for a foodie/amateur chef like me while still being very easy to follow and execute. Delicious. And great portions. A wonderful value for your money and time. Girl and the Goat on Goldbelly is now our go-to for Pandemic at home Date Night.
Tanya B. - Highland Park, NJ
Dinner turned out great and we had fun making it! We have taken two of the Girl and Goat classes and this was similar with no teacher.
Richard G. - Chesterfield, MO
The ingredients were received thoughtfully packed, fresh, with ice still intact. The printed material created excitement and was very helpful for preparation. It is a pleasure watching Stephanie in the kitchen. Although I could not follow along at her speed, I enjoyed watching the presentation, then resumed cooking after.

The live class was so awesome and the food was just delicious. Stephanie is amazing and you should do live classes with her more often! I can't wait to do another.
