Ingredient Prep: 30 min
Seasoning time: 8-24 hrs
Cooking time: 2 hrs
3 lbs goat meat cut into 2-inch pieces - cleaned
1 medium onion - chopped
1 medium bell pepper - chopped
4-5 cloves of garlic - chopped
2 Tbsp fresh ginger root - peeled and grated
4-6 scallions - chopped
2-3 scotch bonnet peppers - chopped (minus seeds)
1 small bunch fresh thyme
4 Tbsp Stir It Up Organic Jamaican Curry Powder Seasoning
1 Tbsp Stir It Up Organic Jamaican All Purpose Seasoning
2 tsp whole pimento seeds
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 Tbsp cooking oil
2 Tbsp butter (optional)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1. Prep the seasoning and add to the cleaned goat meat with 1 Tbsp of the cooking oil (keep out 1 Tbsp of the Curry Powder to use later during cooking). Massage everything into the meat and make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed. Leave the mixture covered in the fridge and allow the flavors and color to soak into the meat overnight or up to 24 hours.
2. Add the remaining 2 Tbsp of cooking oil to your pot on high heat. Then add the remaining 1 Tbsp of Curry Powder and quickly toast or "burn" the Curry Powder by stirring it in the hot oil for 15-20 seconds (do not actually burn it or it will be bitter). As soon as it has a nice color and fragrance, add the seasoned goat mixture, and brown the meat, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes.
3. When the meat is browned, add some boiling water from a nearby kettle until everything is almost covered and stir to combine. Cover, lower the heat, and cook for 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally. Add more boiling water, when needed, to keep a good amount of gravy in the pot and keep the goat from burning.
4. After 1.5 hours, add the sugar, stir to combine, add the butter on top, cover, and simmer on low heat for 20 more minutes (or until very tender and easily separated from the bone). Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
