A recipe provided by our very own Kathryn who lives in Malawi.
There are so many delicious, traditional foods that are popular in Malawi, and we can’t wait to tell you all about them. However, we couldn’t resist posting a recpie from Kathryn who has been living in Malawi since 2006. This quick and easy goat and bean casserole can be served with rice or mashed potato.
Goat is often used in African cooking as a substitute for the more expensive beef or pork. However, saying that, it has also been suggested that eating goat is actually better for you…although if you don’t fancy going the whole hog you can swap it for pork!
Goat and Nyemba (Bean) Casserole
- 400 g or 1lb of cubed goat
- 1 cup cooked beans
- 3 medium tomatoes chopped
- Pinch of herbs optional
- ½ cup beef stock or bean water

- Mix together the meat, salt, herbs and vinegar or lemon juice and allow to marinate for several hours
- Then fry the meat in the oil, add the onions and tomatoes and fry gently until the meat is brown
- Add the beans and stock
- Place in a dish and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or more until the meat is tender
