Goat meat is easy to cook and taste really delicious and tender if the meat is cooked in the correct way. Here is an awesome goat meat caldereta recipe which has been a favourite dish in the family for many years.
Sancocho In large pot, combine meat (pork/beef, bones, water and salt. Bring to boil; skim, lower heat and simmer one hour. Stir in corn and green plantain. Cook 1/2 hour. Stir in yucca, ñame and malanga. Cook 1/2 hour. Stir in sweet potatoes, pumpkin, Sazón and Sofrito. Put ripe plantains on top so they do not dissolve.

If you have not tasted goat, and many people have not, you are missing out. Goat is a staple item in many cuisines around the world. With more people raising meat goats, you are sure to find it appearing on the market more frequently than in the past. If none of your local ethnic markets carry it, you may check the local farmers' markets. Cabrito is from a very young goat, not more than 2 months old. This meat is very tender.
