I remember growing up in Jamaica, Curry Goat was a special dish made for parties and celebrations. It wasn’t something you’d eat every day. Today, curry goat is still special in my house compared to Curry Chicken, which I make all the time. If you For have never tried it, it’s a must-have Jamaican recipe. When cooked right, you’ll find it more tender and flavourful than any curry you have ever tasted. Jamaica’s curry dishes are the remnants of the island’s Indian population. After slavery was abolished on the island, almost 40,000 people came from India to work on plantations as indentured workers. Over generations most intermarried with the larger African population, so Jamaica’s Indian community today is tiny in comparison. However, their influence in Jamaican cuisine lives on in dishes like curry goat. Depending on where you live, you may have to go to a butcher to find goat meat. But in communities with large ethnic populations you may even find it at your local supermarket. I get mine at a local West Indian butchers, where they chop it into cubes (bones still in) perfect for making curry goat! Ingredients 1 kg Goat leg & shoulder mixed. cut (Medium cubes) 2 spring onions 1 large onion 1 scotch bonnet pepper 10 pimento seeds 1 large medium diced white potatoe 1 large carrot sliced medium 5 crushed garlic cloves 2 tsp crushed ginger 4 tbsp Jamaica Valley Curry powder 3 tbsp Jamaica Valley Oxtail Meat seasoning 3 tbsp Jamaica Valley All purpose seasoning 2 tsp sea salt 250 ml coconut oil 600ml boiling water 5 sprigs Thyme Directions : Total cooking time 2 - 2h 30m Wash goat meat in a bowl.
