Girl & the Goat got its name because Stephanie Izard’s last name, Izard, is a type of French Polynesian mountain goat! So of course, when the menu was created, we had to have goat on it. Enjoy this Girl & the Goat specialty, a whole roasted Goat Shoulder. The goat is locally sourced from our friends at Kilgus Farms. Enjoy with all of the yummy sauces and sides as well as Girl & the Goat iconic Green Beans.

Since opening its doors in Chicago’s Fulton Market District in 2010, few Windy City restaurants have been so consistently praised—and packed—as Stephanie Izard’s Girl & The Goat. James Beard Award-winning chef Izard’s bold, globetrotting flavors defy easy categorization. Every item on her restaurant’s family-style menu is extraordinarily creative and delicious. Izard is renowned as one of the US’s best chefs. She won Season 1 of “Iron Chef Gauntlet” and Season 4 of "Top Chef.” and she took home the James Beard Award for Best Chef Great Lakes in 2013. One of the best restaurants in Chicago, Girl & The Goat was a 2011 James Beard Award "Best New Restaurant” finalist.

To Serve

Make The Goat Shoulder

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Pour the braising liquid into the bottom of a large roasting pan or baking dish.
  • Place the goat shoulder on top and cover with foil.
  • Roast for about 40 minutes, allowing the goat to get nice and tender.
  • Meanwhile, halve the lime and squeeze the juice into your herby marinade. Whisk to combine and set aside until ready to serve. Wrap your pita in foil.
  • After 40 minutes has passed, raise the oven temperature to 375 degrees.
  • Return goat to the oven along with the foil-wrapped tortillas.
  • Continue roasting for about 5 minutes more, until the meat begins to lightly brown and bread has warmed through.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • Transfer the goat shoulder to a large serving plate.
  • Serve shredded goat meat on warm pita bread, alongside pickled peppers and onions, herby lime marinade and Tzatziki sauce.
  • Mix, match and enjoy!

Make the Green Beans

  • Add about ¼ cup of the Kewpie mayo to a small mixing bowl.
  • Mix in about 1 tablespoon of This Little Goat Went to Southeast Asia Sauce (you have a whole bottle in your box!) until combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into a small zip-top bag (you will cut the tip off the baggie and drizzle it on top of the beans when ready to serve)!
  • Clean the green beans by removing the rough stems.
  • Bring a pot of heavily-salted water to a rolling boil.
  • Fill a large bowl with ice water. Carefully place the green beans in the boiling water and cook until bright green and just tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Strain and immediately plunge into the ice water bath for 1 minute. Don’t let them sit too long or they will get waterlogged. Drain and pat to dry.
  • Heat a large sauté pan (or a wok if you have one) over medium-high heat and coat with a drizzle of cooking oil (canola, vegetable or grapeseed oil works great. Olive oil is not recommended).
  • Add the green beans to the pan (you should hear a sizzle) and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Sauté the green beans for a few minutes, shaking the pan occasionally as they begin to show a light brown blister. You don’t want them to burn but they should get a nice golden brown color.
  • Once the green beans are getting nice and hot, stir in the sliced shallots.
  • Grab your bottle of This Little Goat Went to Southeast Asia and squeeze about 1 ½ Tablespoons on top of the green beans.
  • Continue stirring and sautéing until well coated and warmed through. (It might get a little smoky so you might want to turn on your fan).
  • Add in your cashews (there’s enough for you to snack on some too!), and toss them around in the pan until nice and coated in the sauce.
  • Transfer the cooked green beans to a serving bowl.
  • Grab your baggie of Southeast Asia mayo drizzle, cut off one bottom corner and drizzle the sauce all over the green beans. Serve warm and enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Form the dough into 4 large balls, each slightly larger than the size of a golf ball.
  • Bake for 12-18 minutes, rotating the tray midway through, until the edges begin to turn slightly golden brown.
  • Let cool before serving.

Nelda B. - Bellevue, WA
The food was excellent. Preparation directions were clear. Nice to have the extra sauce for later.

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

So fun! Stephanie Izard was great! I felt like I was sharing the kitchen with a friend without having to share the space. The food came out delicious! She was easy to cook along with.

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.
Julie F. - Hanover, MA
Basically everything. The food was amazing, and the the instructions were pretty thorough, happy with the box!
Kym N. - Union City, NJ
I am using the spices and liquid marinades on everything. and they make all dishes ( especially veggies) taste so much better!
Linda P. - Montebello, CA
The food was great and the Zoom class with Stephanie was super fun! We really loved the concept of it, and we were able to Zoom with family (who were also in the cooking class) afterwards while we enjoyed the dinner that we just cooked.
