Name: Taso (Fried goat)
Eaten in: Haiti
What would you think about treating yourself with an unusual meat, goat, for a special occasion? Taso might just be your best pick! Taso is not a basic dish in Haiti as goat meat can be expensive. Some people replace goat meat with beef but having tasted the two options, I have to admit that goat meat is my favourite. As it is the case for almost all Haitian meat dishes, you can you have taso with rice and red beans (Diri ak pois coles), pressed double-fried plantains (Banan pese) and spicy pickled vegetables (Pikliz). So if you are able to find good, affordable goat meat in your neighbourhood, do no hesitate to try this recipe!
A little piece of advice: As goat meat is usually very tender, it does not need to be boiled prior to frying. However when substituting beef for goat, your meat might need to be pre-cooked (boiling) before the frying step.
