When we went to 99 ranch market, suddenly, my hubby asking me can I cook goat meat. Then, after I assured him that I can cook the goat meat, he left me at the vegetables' aisle and came back with a pack of raw goat meat.
At home, I was thinking to make goat satay but unfortunately, my hubby chose the meat with bone, so I chose tongseng kambing (goat stew) to introduce the taste of goat meat to my hubby.
Some tongseng using coconut milk, but my hubby is not a fan of coconut milk soup or curry, so I used the recipe without coconut milk. And.....he liked the taste but he dislike the meat texture. He said, "It is too stringy, and it stucked between my tooth!"
Myself, I am not a big fan of goat meat because this meat is good for people who has low blood pressure only. For those who has high blood pressure and any other diseases such as, high cholesterol, diabetic, etc please do not eat this meat. And for healthy people, don't eat goat meat too much if you want to have a long life :).
Anyway, the tongseng itself is good, especially at cold/winter season. I got the recipe from Dapur Bunda, and I add some herbs to avoid the goat smell :).
