By now you all know my diet is like 99% vegan but my recent research on meat has made me think twice, and also the fact that meat is delicious, especially when you follow my style of cooking, which is health conscious. I did not like meat due to the carcinogenic heterocyclic amines a.k.a HCAs but I just learnt that marinating the meat intelligently will actually reduce the HCAs by 99%. This is a game changer and so I will begin this recipe with a great goat marinade that not only reduces the carcinogenic heterocyclic amines, but it also enhances taste, flavour and zest in your meat.
The best marinade is a balanced mixture of oils, acids and herbs hence you need
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Lemon and Lime also bring some nice acidity to break down the meat further
- I prefer lemon but some people like white vinegar or any other vinegar of your choice to offer the acidic property
- For the herbs, you want Rosemary, Basil, Parsley, Oregano, Pure Ground Garlic and Ginger
Mix all these ingredients together with small pieces of meat and refrigerate for 12-24 hours depending on size, mass and volume of meat. If you can’t access a fridge put the marinated meat in an airtight container and insert inside a larger container with cold water and put in a dark and cool place for the specified time.
-Heat up your pan with and cook some finely chopped onions till they caramelize then add some tomatoes and sweet peppers to the mix and cover under low heat for 5 minutes.
-Add the goat meat, stir lightly and then cover the lid and leave it to cook for 30 minutes under LOW HEAT! it is that simple (High heat is bad for cooking)
-If you have a food processor or blender you can make it as a sauce which is the best way to make guacamole but if you can’t access the equipment the salad is still yummy and heavily nutritious.
-Of course you need your olive oil, seasoning (salt and Black & Cayenne Pepper), coriander, red onions, salad tomatoes, lime juice & zest all finely chopped and then mixed with mashed green avocados and then refrigerate for 1 or 2 hours or put in an air-tight container and immerse in cold water.
-It seems easy but some people get it all wrong.
-First of all my best choice of maize meal is Winnies’ Pure health meals which is added some leek powder, rice bran, Amaranth and cinnamon to add in the rich yellow color…the healthiest choice in the market! no doubt
