    This was my first time cooking and eating goat. The recipe was delicious, so full of flavor and the meat was just falling apart. I will definitely be making this again.  -  24 Sep 2014


    Something else. I like to leave bones in the pot for extra flavour  -  22 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
