The Rhodian Beans in the pot with goat meat are a traditional Rhodian recipe.

The beans (lopia), these local, boiling and delicious beans, are the ones that really take off its taste.

To prepare this recipe you can find in any grocery store Greek medium-sized beans. We reccommend this recipe on Sunday dinner.

½ kg of goat meat (cut into portions)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 large onion (chopped)
3 medium-sized carrots (chopped)
1 kg of tomato grated
red pepper
salt at will


For the beans (lopia) with the meat in the pot, first boil in a deep pan the goat with plenty of water to soften.

When the meat is done, put it on a platter and hold the broth.

Boil the beans with plenty of water for about 30 ′ to soften.

Drain them and discard the water.

In a saucepan, put the olive oil and brown the boiled meat.

Add the boiled beans, tomato, carrot, celery, pelt and broth.

Salt and pepper and let the beans with the meat boil for about 40,, on low heat until the Rhodian redipe is crisp.

Alternatively all the food is put in a deep baking dish and baked in the wood oven.

The recipe is nothing more than a fantastic bean soup that owes its taste to the unique variety of Rhodian beans from the region of Katavia in Southern Rhodes.
