  • 2 - 3 pounds Goat meat cut in 3 - 4 inches
  • Limes Lemons or White Vinegar for cleaning meat
  • 1/3 cup Sour Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1 full sprig Fresh Thyme
  • 3/4 tsp Noubess Hot and Spicy Original with Herbs blend
  • 1 medium White Onion - sliced
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper cubed or sliced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Scallions - roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 Whole Cloves
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Paste + 1/3 cup fresh chopped tomatoes


  • Trim excess fat from meat cuts. Clean with lemon, lime or vinegar and rinse with cold water well and drain.
  • Add all spices in food processor or blender or pestle and mortar if using. Blend or mash ingredients until a paste is form. If using blender or food processor add sour orange juice and blend well.
  • In a bowl, mix well spices, Noubess Hot and Spicy Original sauce and meat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Allow meat to be at room temperature before cooking. In a heavy pan, add meat and boil until tender and checking occasionally. Add hot water (only 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water) if meat needs more liquid and time to cook. Remove meat from sauce and set aside. Strain meat sauce and set aside. Remove any excess fat from liquid if necessary.
  • In a saucepan add oil and tomato paste. Cook tomato paste with oil until well blended until low heat. Increase heat to medium setting and add meat pieces. Roast turning occasionally for about 5 minutes. Add chopped fresh tomatoes and cook while stirring for about 2 - 3 minutes or until the tomato chunks have started to release their juice. Add 2 tablespoon of meat sauce at a time until well incorporate. If not enough meat sauce add hot water - 1/2 to 3/4 cup only. Add onion and green pepper, season to taste with salt and pepper and with additional Noubess Hot and Spicy Original with Herbs blend if necessary. And cook for additional 5 to 7 minutes until sauce thickens a bit. Remove from heat and serve with rice or root vegetables.


Add 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lime juice when adding onion if preferred.
Always add hot water and not cold water to retain the taste of the herbs and spices. Cold water will make the meat taste bland.
Cooking time may differ if meat pieces are smaller of larger.
The longer the meat marinates, the more flavorful it will be.
