GOAT STEW - My Version

Goat meat taste like lamb.  So, if you can't find goat meat, you can use lamb as substitute.
It is considered to be lower in fat and easier on the digestive system.

The following recipe is simple but flavorful.  It borrows techniques and ingredients from Spain.  I make this dish for my family and we love it!

3 lbs of goat ribs cut up in 2 inch squares
5 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 large onion, minced
5 TB of olive oil
1/2 cup of white wine (or red)
1 green or red pepper seeded and sliced
1 carrot sliced thickly
6 small Yukon potatoes, peeled and cut in halves (optional)
1/2 cup of green olives
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
Salt and pepper for seasoning to taste
First you heat up the olive oil.  Add the minced garlic and onions and saute till onions are transparent and garlic slightly brown.  Add the goat meat to brown a little.  Add the wine and tomato sauce.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover pot and simmer for about 30 - 45 minutes.  Add the carrots, olives, potatoes and sliced peppers.  Simmer 20 minutes more and serve.
