West Indian Curried Goat #SundaySupper

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.

When done, serve curried goat with rice and vegetables.
