goat grab n. at gatherings or celebrations in the Middle East, a communal self-served meal of meat and vegetables eaten with the hands. Editorial Note: This term is used informally by Anglophones not native to the culture. The food eaten in a goat grab is often a form of mansef, which includes rice with almonds and pine nuts, shrak (a thin, round wheat bread), goat (sometimes with lamb and beef and usually cooked with yogurt), and jammid (a dry, hard cheese made of sheep’s or goat’s milk).
