You have to try it at home.
First of all, thanks to my dad for this goat recipe. (Thanks Papa! hihihi... )
Now, not everyone may be comfortable eating goat meats. Some may find them too strong (and smelly, even). If this is the case with you, feel free to substitute pork or beef for this recipe. Let me remind you though, that goat meats are definitely leaner, lower in calories and saturated fats compared to pork, beef or chicken.
Try putting goat stew in the fridge to allow its lard or fats to freeze and float. You'd hardly find any; as opposed to beef or pork fats. So, if you're concerned with cholesterol, having goat meat once in a while might do you some good.
