1. Cut goats leg at the knee-bone, pierce meat several times, rinse in water and sprinkle on meat tenderizer.

4. Remove meat from water, place back in the bowl and add about 2 cups red wine.

5. Allow meat to soak in wine for 20-30 minutes.

6. Discard water and wine.

7. While meat is in wine, place 12 cup or so of olive oil in a skillet, add a few annatto seeds, and an ancho pepper (dried) or two, unseeded.

8. Heat oil and stir seeds until oil takes on the color of the annatto seeds, (orange).

9. Keep heat low, allow oil to cool, and brush over meat while grilling.

  1. When grill is ready, cook meat about 10 minutes on one side, then 5 or so on the other, or until meat is done.
