JAMAICAN CURRY GOAT
Jamaican Curry Goat – insanely delicious slow cooked Jamaican Spiced Curry that is full of flavour and tender to the bone! An absolutely must-make Jamaican food! So easy to make with minimal prep.
- 1 kg goat meat (cut in chunks)
- ¼ cup cooking oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1 ½ tablespoons curry powder
- ½ teaspoon white pepper
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 2 medium potatoes
- 150 g green beans, sliced
- 1 carrot, sliced
- ½ tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 scotch bonnet pepper (adjust to suit taste buds or replace with any hot pepper)
- 1 cube beef stock
- salt to taste
Season goat with salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat, until hot, and then add the goat meat sauté stirring frequently, any browned bits off the bottom of the pot, until goat is brown.
Then add curry, stir for about 1-2 minutes.
Add the garlic, white pepper, onions, thyme, tomato paste, scallions (green onions) and scotch bonnet pepper stir for about a minute.
Then pour in just enough water and stock to cover the goat and bring to a boil and let it simmer until tender (depending on the goat size and preference) about 2 hours or more, stirring the saucepan occasionally and adding more water as needed. The easiest way to cook it, is covered in an oven at 150° C.
About 15 – 20 minutes before you remove it from the stove add potatoes and other vegetables.
Continue cooking until vegetables are tender.
You may adjust thickness of liquid with extra water or gravy powder.
