Goat meat is popular in our Zimbabwean cuisine. It would be slaughter together with chickens and or a cow during gatherings such as parties, weddings and sometimes funerals. The usual way to prepare this would be stewing it. I decided to play around with it and make something different. It was absolutely delicious! We all enjoyed it and I hope you will too.
