Goat meat or goat's meat ( Enyama Y’embuzi in Luganda) is the meat of the domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus). It is often called Chevon or mutton when the meat comes from adults, and Cabrito, Capretto, or kid when from young animals.

While "goat" is usually the name for the meat found in common parlance, producers and marketers may prefer to use the French-derived word Chevon (from chèvre). 

Goat meat is savory and less sweet than beef but slightly sweeter than lamb. It can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as being stewed, curried, baked, grilled, barbecued, minced, canned, fried, or made into sausage. Goat jerky is also another popular variety.

In Okinawa (Japan), goat meat is served raw in thin slices as yagisashi. In Indian subcontinent, the rice dish mutton biryani uses goat meat as a primary ingredient to produce a rich taste.

"Curry goat" is a common traditional Indo-Caribbean dish. In West Bengal, traditional meat dishes like kosha mangsho and rezala are prepared using meat from a "Khashi", a castrated goat with a meat that has richer taste and a milder, less gamey flavor.
