Braised, salted or fried goat meat is a part of the dominican culture, so its not hard to find it here. You can go to the local markets to find fresh goat meat or simply go to the supermarket where they always have it, and if you are wise you would ask the days they get it fresh.
But is not always the same situation in other countries, my recommendations is to go to Latino or Jamaican markets and bodegas where I'm sure you would find it and if not they would tell you where they usually get it. Another helpful source to find out where you can buy goat meat locally is the internet, where you can find meat directories as Get your goat to find where to buy it near you or even buy it online and have it deliver to you door, as you can do at AGBASE.
How ever you get it, now you can prepare this delicious and easy Dominican style braised goat meat or as we say it in full dominican chivo guisao. Here it goes.
'till next time
2 pounds of goat1 tablespoon of dry oregano
3 garlic cloves
1 medium white onion julienne
1 medium cubanelle pepper in strips
1 ripe tomato medium diced
1 teaspoon of Tabasco hot sauce (optional)
Clean and let water run through the meat (if the bones have marrow, try pushing it out and save). Season the goat meat with all the ingridients and work throroughly. Let marinate for 3 to 4 hours.
Heat up a large sauce pot and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil. Start getting the meat in the pot slowly and over high heat. Make sure to reserve the vegatable and marinte juice.
The meat is going to release a lot of liquid. Let it cook in its own liquid until it reduces completely . After it reduces add more water, enough to cover the meat and let reduce completly again. Repeat this 2 to 3 more times until meat its tender. Let the last water you add reduce only half way and then add the vegetables, the bone marrow if you have it and the marinate juice. Let cook for 5 to 8 minutes more. You want the meat to be fork tender and for it to have a lot of sauce.
