Goat Stew

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"This is based on a Filipino stew recipe called caldereta. It is usually served with rice. I suggest marinating the meat for at least 6 hours. The serving size for this recipe is 2 to 4 depending on how much bone the meat has. Serve over rice. Masarap!"

  1. Mix goat meat with vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic in a large bowl; cover and refrigerate from 1 to 8 hours. For best flavor, marinate at least 6 hours. Remove meat from marinade and pat dry with paper towels; reserve marinade and garlic cloves.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and brown the goat meat, working in batches if necessary, 10 to 15 minutes. Set goat meat aside. Cook and stir onion, red bell pepper, and garlic cloves from the marinade over medium heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes; pour in tomato sauce and bring mixture to a simmer. Allow to cook down slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Return goat meat to the sauce and pour in reserved marinade and beef stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer covered until goat meat is partially tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir in potato, carrots, and peas; season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Simmer until goat meat is very tender and potato and carrots are cooked through, 20 to 30 more minutes. Adjust seasonings before serving.

Way too salty, way too tomatoey, and we even used less than the recommended amounts of soy sauce and tomato sauce! Definitely will not make again, and if I could rate this lower I would for sure...

This recipe was amazing. We have never cooked goat before and were worried about the taste (this was an Ibex goat that we cooked so it's game meat.) We marinated for 24 hours and the meat was so...

After the first time making this, it quickly became my husbands favorite dish. He requests it all the time, and no one else in the family complains. I took the advice of a reviewer and boiled th...

Recipe was great and am sure beef could have been substituted but goat needs to be boiled 2 hours first to soften then do original recipe using boiled water as base for stew.

My husband and I enjoyed this dish. I did not use any additional salt based on a couple of the reviewer's warnings, and I doubled the vegetables. Other than that, I followed the recipe. This is ...

This was so good! I live in India and was making for the family here, so I did minor tweaks. But the basic idea of this is perfect and you can vary it as you want. Here's my changes: I tripl...

I made some changes based on what I had in the kitchen. I used the whole 2 lb bag of goat cubes because I already had them thawed. I left the marinade measurements the same except I doubled the ...

AWESOME! I LOVED IT! I marinated the meat for 12 hours! The meat is very delicious! I didn't add everything that the recipe said and also changed a few ingredients, but all in all it is great an...
