CURRIED GOAT AND CARIBBEAN RICE

Goat lets face it… It’s a stubborn lamb, but with a little cooking transforms into something to not say ‘Nahhhh’ about!

Here inspired by Jamtown we recreate the epitome of Caribbean flavours in our Curried Goat with Caribbean Rice and Beans

CURRIED GOAT
3 Pounds of goat

1 Onion chopped
5 tbsp Jamaican curry powder
2 tbsp Ground allspice

Seasoning

Chop the goat into chunks and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy – based pan until hot. Add the goat meat and brown over a medium heat. Stir often, scraping any bits that catch in the pan. If the pan begins to catch too much add a splash of water. Stir the curry powder and allspice into the goat meat and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add the onions, garlic, white pepper, thyme tomato puree and scotch bonnet chilli and stir. Add enough water to the pan to cover the ingredients, bring to the boil reducing the heat and simmer for around 2-3 hours until the goat is tender. Topping up with water as necessary.
