Cooking Authentic Curry Goat: A Step-by-Step Guide
- 2 lbs high-quality goat meat
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tbsp allspice (pimento seeds)
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Scotch bonnet pepper, deseeded and chopped (adjust to taste)
- 1 tsp ginger, grated
- 2 spring onions (scallions), chopped
- Salt to taste
- 3 cups water or broth
- 2 potatoes, cubed (optional)
- Fresh coriander (cilantro) for garnish
Marinate the Meat: In a large bowl, combine the goat meat, curry powder, allspice, salt, half of the chopped onions, garlic, Scotch bonnet pepper, ginger, and spring onions. Mix well, ensuring the meat is well-coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Sear the Meat: In a large pot, add a splash of oil over medium heat. Add the remaining onions and sauté until translucent. Add the marinated meat and sear on all sides until it’s browned.
Cooking: Add water or broth to the pot, ensuring the meat is submerged. Cover and let it simmer on low heat for 2-2.5 hours until the meat is tender.
Adding Potatoes: If you're using potatoes, add them in the last 30 minutes of the cooking process.
Serve: Once the meat is tender and the sauce thickened to your liking, remove from heat. Garnish with fresh coriander.
