West Indian Curried Goat #SundaySupper

by The ROXX Box on December 23, 2012

in #SundaySupper, Dinner ideas

Curry is a very traditional meal in the caribbean.  Many families make curried chicken, beef, goat, and seafood on a regular basis.  One of my favorite dishes is curried chicken with macaroni and cheese.  I could eat this meal everyday, all day.

For this weeks #sundaysupper, I decided to make the traditional caribbean holiday meal of curried goat.  Goat can be relatively expensive, so it is not a meat that is eaten as often as chicken or beef.  Goat is also a meat that many families prefer to make only on special occasions.   Well there is nothing more special than the Christmas holiday, and I am so happy that I am able to share this meal for #sundaysupper.

West Indian Curried Goat

West Indian Curried Goat

Here is how to prepare:


Dice up 2 pounds for boneless goat meat. I normally get my goat meat at a local Indian market.


In a bowl add 6 tablespoons West Indian curry powder, 3/4 tablespoon ground allspice, and salt/pepper.


This is the curry powder that I prefer.


Rub curry into the meat. Once done, allow meat to marinate for at least 30 minutes. You may want to apply disposable gloves when you do this since curry can stain your hands.


In a cast iron dutch oven or large stock pot, add 1/4 cup canola oil and place on med heat. Once hot, add meat in batches to the pot. You don’t want to overcrowd the pot, so it’s necessary to add meat in batches.


Cook meat until brown on both sides. Remove and add to a bowl. You will do this until all of the meat has been browned.


Next add 1 medium onion chopped and 1 small habanero pepper cut in 1/2 and seeds removed to the pot. Add a little bit more canola oil is needed. Saute until onions begin to soften. Once this happens, add 2 tablespoons chopped garlic, and 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger to the pot and mix well. Season with salt/pepper if needed. Allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent vegetables from sticking to the bottom of the pot.


Next add browned goat meat and drippings back into the pot and mix well.


Once mixed, add 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk, 8 ounces of tomato sauce, 3 cups beef broth, and 1/2-1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves. Mix well. Cover pot, and place on low-medium heat. Allow goat to simmer for about 2 hours or until goat meat becomes fork tender. Checking occasionally and stirring to make sure that nothing is sticking to the bottom of pot.


While goat is cooking, add 2 cups diced potatoes and water to another pot and place on medium heat. Once water starts to boil, cook potatoes for an additional 2-3 minutes, then turn off heat.


Strain potatoes and set aside for later use.


Once goat meat is fork tender, add potatoes to pot and allow to simmer for about 15-20 minutes. You want potatoes to be soft, but not mushy.

West Indian Curried Goat

When done, serve curried goat with rice and vegetables.

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I’ve had
issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
good platform.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering
what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m
not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This design is spectacular! You most certainly know
how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.

I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more
than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Goat is a little hard to come by, but I’ll bet this would be great with lamb or pork.

Yes..Lamb is a great substitute. Thanks for the pork idea :)

Mmm…I love curry, every version from every culture (although some are hotter than others and I’m not a girl who can handle a lot of spice – whew!). I cook the potatoes separately too – it’s a trick I learned from my mother-in-law, who makes a kick-ass Chinese green curry. This looks so delicious and I’d never had thought of pairing curry with macaroni. I hope you had a wonderful holidays full of good food, booze and family!

Yes..I hate mushy potatoes. So cooking it separately works for me. Mac and curry brings back awesome childhood memories. I love it!!!

Currie from Indian restaurant haven’t agreed with me, but I recently tried a Thai curry and loved it. Maybe I have to continue to expand my horizons!

What a nice tradition! I’ve never had goat meat and I’m not sure I can find it in my area. I’ll have to try this recipe with another meat. I do love curry a lot.

Beef stew meat, as well as lamb works well also.

We eat Indian goat curry a lot but I have never tried a west indian curry and now I am so curious about what the differences would be.

I personally think Indian curry has more of a milder taste. But both are pretty comparable.

Thank you for the step by step!! I enjoy curried goat whenever I go home to Jamaica. I have not yet attempted it myself but I’m sure I’ll get around to it. What happened to the scotch bonnett pepper? :-) Merry Christmas to you!

theroxxbox December 25, 2012 at 12:59 am

LOL…I didn’t feel like going on a mad search for scotch bonnet peppers. So I decided to settle with habanero. I a very visually person, so I love to see step by step visual instructions. Can be a bit time consuming, but I prefer presenting my recipes this way. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family also!!!

I love this! I ran a goat cooking class a couple of years ago along with a local goat rancher. We still don’t see it around very much, but I really enjoyed it so much. I love the seasoning mix with the habanero you use here. Very nice flavors.

I love the blend of flavors in curried goat. I like this dish to have a bit of a kick with the habanero pepper, but not too overpowering.

I never had goat, but curries are one of my favorite dishes! I like the idea of macaroni cheese and curry chicken. Happy Holidays!

Your curry looks and sounds amazing! It brings back great childhood memories of my best friend and her family.

I remember having goat at my friend’s house…it must’ve been someone’s birthday or something. I was adventurous with food even as a kid and I loved every bite of the goat dish! Her mom was such a great cook and you could tell she put a lot of love in her dishes.
