curry goat

Curry goat is a curry dish that comes from the Indian influence in our cuisine.  Put simply….IT.IS.A.BIG.DEAL…in Jamaica.  It is the ‘party’ dish in Jamaican and it is mainly served at weddings, dances and big celebrations.  Nowadays, it is eaten more frequently by people who can afford it as it is a very lean and healthy piece of meat.  It is a thick and hearty dish.  We typically serve it with white rice and fried plantain, but because of its hearty stew-like texture (with some potato and carrot), my wife will usually just have a side of plantain with it.  We buy our goat at the farmer’s market from a local farmer.  Our farmer sells stew meat and goat chops.  The stew meat sometimes has small bones (which is great) and the chops usually will have to be cut smaller for this recipe.  If you haven’t tried goat, this is the best place to start, you will not be disappointed!

For this recipe, we used our dutch ovenmortar and pestlechef’s knife,cutting board, and silicone spatula and brush set.
