“Growing up we ate "Bar-b-que" quite often and it came as a shock to me when I discovered that what we called Bar-b-que most called "Sloppy Joes"! I guess I can thank my Grandmother not only for the recipe but also for our PA Dutch roots that named our dish. I was diagnosed with a condition called "Gastroparesis" as an adult and as a result had to drastically change my diet, part of it meaning hunting for a meat that is very low in fat, easy to digest and high in essential nutrients and I found goat meat. At first I was scared... we are talking "goat" here, but I braved it and got some ground goat and used it to make our old family favorite. Not only did it taste great, but it was very gentle on my paralyzed digestive tract! In deference to the rest of the nation I have renamed out PA Dutch Bar-b-que as a Sloppy Joe and am sharing with you the version made with ground goat. (You can, of course, use any ground meat in this recipe, but if you are brave enough to try goat you will get a pleasant suprise and your heart will thank you!)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the goat with the diced onion, salt and pepper in a saucepan over medium low heat until cooked through. **Stir constantly since meats very low in fat cook faster and burn easily**.
  2. Add the katsup, mustard, vinegar and sugar and stir to combine then turn the heat down to low and heat through for 5-10 minutes while stirring.
  3. Spoon onto Hamburger buns and enjoy.
