To Serve

Roasted Pork Shank

Cook the Pork Shank:

  • 1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2. Remove the pork from the bag, feel free to remove a little bit of the excess gelatin that is on the shank if you want!
  • 3. Place it on an oven-safe pan, with the bone pointed vertically up and cook for about 40-45 minutes until well caramelized. While this is cooking, check out the green bean recipe below to begin cleaning, blanching timing out the cook of your green bean dish!

Make the Kabocha Squash Puree:

  • 1. Heat a pot of water over medium-low heat.
  • 2. Grab your bag of Kabocha squash puree and carefully place in the simmering water.
  • 3. Let simmer until squash puree is softened and warmed through, about 10 minutes.

Plate and serve:

  • 1. Pick the mint leaves off of the stems and give them a rough tear.
  • 2. Thinly slice the scallions and set aside for serving
  • 3. Grab your warm squash puree, cut open the bag and spread a few large spoonfuls on the bottom of your serving plate.
  • 4. Place warm pork shank on top of puree.
  • 5. Drizzle with some Thai-style sweet & sour sauce and top with torn mint leaves and sliced scallions. Dig in!
Girl & the Goat Green Beans

Prep the green beans:

  • 1. Start by cleaning your green beans
  • 2. blanch them by bringing a pot of salted water to rolling boil. Add in the green beans for about 4 minutes.
  • 3. Strain and add to a pre-pared ice bath for 1 minute. Don’t let them sit too long – they will get waterlogged. Place them on a paper towel to dry!

Make the drizzle sauce:

  • 1. Add the ramequin of Kewpie mayo in a mixing bowl.
  • 2. Mix in about 2 tbsp of This Little Goat Went to South- east Asia (you have a bottle in your box!).
  • 3. Mix it all together and spoon the mixture into a Ziplock bag. You will cut the tip of the baggie and drizzle it on top when you are ready to serve!

Cook the green beans:

  • 1. Heat up a large sauté pan (or a wok if you have one) over medium-high heat and drizzle about 1 tbsp of oil (I prefer rice bran, grapeseed, canola or anything really except olive oil!).
  • 2. Put the green beans on the pan and you should hear it sizzle! I usually grab one green bean and take a bite! I taste it to see if I want to add a bit more salt to them, I usually do ;) I sprinkle a little more salt on them while they cook on the pan. Let them sauté for a couple of minutes and keep moving them around on the pan as they begin to show a light brown blister! You don’t want them to burn— just get a light golden brown bubbly golden color and are heated all the way through!
  • 3. Once they seem like they are getting nice and hot, sprinkle in the shaved shallots and stir them in! Sauté for a few seconds.
  • 4. Grab your bottle of This Little Goat Went to Southeast Asia and squeeze in about 2-3 tbsp of this right on the green beans and continue to stir around and sauté! It might get a little smoky, so you might want to turn on your fan!
  • 5. Add in your cashews (there’s enough for you to snack on some too if you want!), I like to break them up a little bit and toss them around on the pan!

Assemble and serve:

  • Grab your serving bowl and put the cooked green beans in there! Grab that baggie of the drizzle, cut the corner of it, and drizzle the sauce over the top! Enjoy!


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350
  • 2. Form dough into 2 large balls, slightly larger than a golf ball
  • 3. Bake for 12-18 minutes, rotating the tray halfway through, until the edges turn slightly golden
  • 4. Let cool slightly before serving

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!

I am using the spices and liquid marinades on everything. and they make all dishes ( especially veggies) taste so much better!
