Mise en place

  • Rub the goat meat with the Pimentón de La Vera, place in a bowl, cover and leave overnight or for 12 hours in the fridge


  1. Whilst the goat is marinating, heat some olive oil in a casserole or frying pan.
  2. Add the onions and gently fry until caramelised - a pinch each of sugar and salt will help with this. The longer it takes, the better the flavour.
  3. Towards the end of the cooking time, add the garlic.
  4. Pre-heat your slow cooker according to the manufacturer's instructions - about 20 minutes.
  5. Tip the onion mixture into the slow cooker.
  6. Using the same pot or pan that you used for the onions, heat a little more olive oil to high.
  7. Add the goats chunks, a few at a time for just long enough to sear the outside.
  8. Transfer to the slow cooker and add the hot stock, potatoes and red wine
  9. Cook on 'high' for 2-3 hours
  10. Add the peppers, courgettes, aubergines, olives and raisins and cook for a further 2-3 hours
  11. Season to taste and serve, garnished with chopped mint


You can use any combination of vegetables, but just make sure that any hard ones, eg carrots are added at the beginning

Chef's notes

I advise you to get the meat chopped by the supplier, rather than do it yourself, which I understand can be very tricky to get right

You can cook this on 'low' if you like. I have not tested it, but would suggest a total of 8 hours cooking at least.

If you are not going to be around to add the vegetables half way through cooking, you can put them all in at the beginning.
