    1. Stir together the water, lime juice and goat meat in a large container. Let stand for 10 minutes, then drain the meat in a colander and squeeze out as much water as possible.
    2. Heat the canola oil in a large frying pan until smoking over medium-high heat. Add the drained goat meat and cook until browned all over, about 7 minutes. Stir in the onion and capsicum, cook until the onion has softened, about 3 minutes, then stir in the tomato paste. Pour in the water, vinegar and soy sauce; season with nutmeg, paprika, salt and pepper.
    3. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally and add more water if needed to prevent sticking.

    This was delicious! WOW! I did add another cup of water during the cooking and then about a half cup of chicken broth. I also put in about 3 T of tomato paste instead of 1. The secret to tenderness is to cook it low and slow. I served this over basmati rice and it got rave reviews! A definite "do again".  -  26 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was awesome! I followed the directions exactly up to Step 3: I poured all the contents into a crock pot and let it simmer on low for 4 hours. To adapt the recipe to the crock pot, I added 2 additional cups of water and a can of chicken broth. This was my first time trying goat...and I wasn't disappointed!  -  13 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
