If you like sloppy joes, you should try this unique variation. Made with goat meat, these tacos are sweet, tangy, and yes, just a little bit sloppy. You can also use hamburger buns as the base, if that is more your style.

Ingredients

  • 1 red onion
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper (chili)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 500 grams goat (chopped kid)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper (diced)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 8 hamburger buns (tacos or 4)
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • grated cheese
  • basil (optional)

Directions

  1. Cut the onions in thin slices, and dice the pepper.
  2. Fry together for 5 minutes in a dash of olive oil.
  3. Then, add the garlic, and cook for another minute.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Cook the chopped meat in a skillet over low heat with a little olive oil.
  6. Fry the meat for 10 minutes until well-done.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Add yellow pepper, chili, tomato sauce, brown sugar, and broth.
  9. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

The flavor was good, but goat tends to need low and slow to be tender...this left the meat a bit chewy...

Really solid dish I added honey to the sauce to tone down the spice.after searing off the goat I made enough sauce to be a braising liquid when the goat was done, I pulled it out and reduced the sauce to a spicy BBQ. My 7 year old ate with glee

We prefer the goat on buns rather than on taco shells. I added a bit more brown sugar for added sweetness and doubled the purple onions. I grilled the buns after brushing them on the inside with butter.
