Goat Stew

This delicious and hearty stew comes from Nigeria, where goat is a staple meat. If you can’t find goat at the store or at your local butcher shop, you can always substitute lamb, beef, or pork!

You’ll Need:
  • 1 ½  lb of goat
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 tbs of butter
  • ½  bay leaf
  •  ? tsp of cloves
  • ?   of ginger
  • 1 dash of cayenne
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tb freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups of beef stock
  • 1 tb of peanut butter
  • 2 tbs of flour


Peel and dice the onions, and slice the carrots. Finely dice the meat and crush the garlic. Heat up the peanut butter to medium heat and sauté the meat and vegetables for a few minutes (until onions are translucent). Then add tomato puree, spices, lemon juice, and the stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let it simmer until meat is tender to your liking. After that, mix peanut butter and flour and stir it into the stew. Let the stew simmer for a few more minutes and check for seasoning. [Makes 4 servings.]
