Italian Stewed Goat With Tomatoes Vutana Style - Capra a Ra Vutana


•2 1/4 pounds tender goat, kid or lamb
•3/4 pound tomatoes, chopped and seeded but not peeled
•2 tablespoons tomato paste
•1 medium onion, thinly sliced
•Fresh basil
•Fennel seeds (about a teaspoon to begin with)
•1 hot pepper or equivalent amount cayenne (or more to taste)
•Olive oil

Chop the meat into pieces and soak it in a mixture of water and vinegar for two hours (you’ll want a few tablespoons of vinegar in water to cover). Then, pat the meat dry and sauté it in a pan with the olive oil (about a quarter cup). Once it has browned for about ten minutes add the thinly sliced onion and continue cooking 5 minutes more. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, fennel and red pepper, and reduce the heat to a bare simmer. Dilute the tomato paste in a cup of water and use it to replace the liquid that evaporates during the simmering, which will take about three hours; after about an hour check seasoning and salt to taste.
Variation: For the same amount of meat, substitute in 2 tablespoons minced parsley and 2 minced cloves garlic for the fennel seeds; you can also increase the red pepper if you want.
