This recipe is more of a guide to cooking goat stew meat with a pressure cooker like the Instant Pot. You'll find that after you follow the directions, you may make adjustments on when you add ingredients and other seasonings (before the pressure cook or after), as well as how much cooking liquid to remove.
By using the pressure cooker, this is a no fail way to easily cook your goat meat so it's tender and flavorful without spending hours in the kitchen. It allows you to use your favorite goat recipe or keep it simple with a seasoning kit or a jar of sauce from the grocery store.

Our family loves eating tacos and other Mexican food. One of our favorite ways to eat goat meat is in a taco. This recipe was also inspired by a local Mexican restaurant, that occasionally offers goat meat tacos, and works well with a slow cooker, one of my favorite kitchen tools. More recently, I cooked the meat using the slow cook function in my Instant Pot (modifications are listed in the recipe).

I own and manage Cylon Rolling Acres in northwestern Wisconsin. On my farm I raise Boer - Kiko meat goats on pasture.
Cylon (pronounced Si-lon) is the name of our township in St. Croix County, Wisconsin. Sorry fans, our farm is not named after the robots of Battlestar Galactica.
