Night time temps to 25 degrees F and big sale at new supermarket with goat at $1.79/lb prompted this stew. Goat is tasty, lean, high in protein & thusly benefits from slow cooking/braising. This stew is mildy spicy from the black pepper & peppers in the Rotel (canned diced tomato/green chili) & one can pick the Rotel (mild, regular, hot) for preferred degree of heat. Good eats on a cold night! Serve with romaine salad & hot crusty baquette. Time does not include presoaking of navy beans.

So delicious! Had no adobo seasoning so substituted chili powder. Absolutely amazing, ate every bite!

I tried this recipe and it was good. The only problem was that my only source of goat meat is poor cuts that were very fatty. So i spent a lot of time skimming the broth. i will definitely try again as soon as i can find a better source for the meat.

Great recipe. I had no beef base or adobo seasoning and used mixed beans and cooked it forever in a crockpot on high and we ate every bite.
