Goose Stew is a hearty stew with a robust flavor. This recipes is gluten free, and dairy free. If you cannot get your hands on goose breast than a simple roast can be used to substitute the meat in this recipe.
Goose is very different from other fowl or waterfowl as it can be cooked to a temperature, like red meat. Goose is very lean but has a strong, meaty flavor. Its flavor is similar to a milder version of calf liver. Goose breast is also temperamental cut to cook with as it can seize up very quickly. Braising or roasting this cut can put your culinary skills to the test. However, slow cooking or pressure cooking takes away a lot of the difficulties and ends with a tender piece of meat that falls apart. Ahhh, cooking satisfaction!
