To eliminate the smell of the goat meat, mix 1 cup of powdered milk into a half gallon of cool water and soak the meat for about an hour and rinse before preparing. Or you can also soak the chops in water for 30 minutes to open the pores in the meat. Liberally salt both sides of the chops and let them sit for one hour. Scrape, then rinse the salt from the meat before cooking. You can also brine the chops by soaking them in a mixture of water, salt and vinegar, then rinsing before cooking.
