Get Your Goat, Part 2

The goat ribs were so successful the other day that we decided to try something else this weekend. We bought a goat shoulder at the farmers’ market in Warwick last weekend and then followed a recipe for Goat Tacos yesterday.

The 2-1/2 pound shoulder was slowly braised in a red sauce made up of reconstituted dried Guajillo and Ancho chilis, fresh tomatoes, garlic, bay, clove, oregano, salt and pepper. This took about 3-1/2 hours, but resulted in meat that was packed with flavor and a wonderful red chili sauce. We then put the meat in a corn tortilla and garnished the taco with avocado, farmer’s cheese, salsa verde, and sour cream. Oh, and some corn on the side.

Here is a photo of the shoulder (I am pulling the meat off the bones so it can cook a few minutes stirred into the sauce), as well as the finished tacos.
