Iftar Prep – Slow Cooker Goat Meat Stew

​This is another great meal prep idea for the Iftar meals which would definitely come in handy on a busy Ramadan weekday.

You could easily cook this very hands off in a slow cooker, or a deep pan, dutch oven or pressure cooker.

This recipe stores very well in your refrigerator, so you could quickly microwave it for those busy weekdays!

    ​Grease the slow cooker with cooking spray on all sides and add the marinated meat and cook on high for about 4-6 hours, checking and stirring every hour or so making sure there is enough liquid to complete the cooking. I usually do not add any liquid, but add if needed. All slow cookers are different 🙂

    ​Mix the corn flour (or alternate) in water and add to the slowcooker and mix well. At this time add any additional water, check salt etc..

​Reminder again - if eating for weightloss, make sure you eat this with steamed vegetables.

For kids and those who are at your ideal weight, enjoy with Naan, Roti or Rice!
