Jamaican Curry Goat


  • 3 pounds (1.5 kg goat) , cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 lime
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped (about 3 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp finely chopped Scotch bonnet pepper
  • 2 tsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp / 5 mL sugar
  • 5 green onions, chopped (about 1 cup / 250 mL)
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into half inch cubes


  1. Squeeze the lime juice over the goat; let it sit for a couple of minutes and then rinse with cold water. Drain off excess water. Place the goat in a sealable container and add the onion, garlic, salt, black pepper, thyme, and Scotch bonnet pepper. Wearing rubber gloves, rub the spices into the goat with your hands. Marinate, covered and refrigerated, for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil and sugar, stirring until the sugar is brown.
  3. Add the goat with marinade, green onions, and curry; stir thoroughly. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low, and simmer the goat slowly in its own juices, stirring occasionally, until the goat is nearly tender, about 30 minutes. If the meat is tough, pour a a quarter of a cup / 60 mL of water at a time down the sides of the pot, not directly onto the goat (or you will toughen the meat).
  4. Add the potatoes and a quarter of a cup / 60 mL of water; stir thoroughly. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked but not too soft. Crush some of the potatoes to thicken the sauce, if desired. If there is not enough sauce, add a quarter of a cup / 60 mL of water and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes.

Makes about 4-5 portions, serve with rice or roti and a salad.

    I cooked this recipe and my partner said it tasted great but the meat was a little tough, what can i do to make the meat soft and tender next time?

  3. Jessicaon 17 Dec 2010 at 12:58 am

    Hi Samantha,

    I would leave it to cook until the meat is completly tender. Just keep an eye on it.

    Kind regards,

    I am trying to get a personal loan through my credit union. I have bad credit due to immature decisions when I was younger. I now pay my bills on time and am capable of paying back a loan. Do you think I have a better chance of getting the loan if I have collateral and a co-signer?

    An electronic cigarette store may be just what is needed.
    * Watch – Just like in the spy filmks where the hero or heroine whips up his watch, focus on the suspect
    or criminal mastermind and take a photograph or video photographs,
    these spyy cameras disguised as watches are great tools
    to have for any surveillance work. Getting Ecig to deawl with lifestyle with out cigarettes is a problem.

    compared to purely synthetic fabric, though pure cotton
    is still better in this regard. Finally, Mopar offers a Soft Top zipper

  25. payday loans in delmar deon 02 Sep 2014 at 10:49 am

    Under a guise of “helping those in need,” payday lenders offer loans regardless of
    patrons’ credit, thereby effectively preying on those who are most susceptible to such unjust practices.
    If you want to arrange a small party at your home or in hotel then Instant
    Faxless Payday loans are the best option. With other countries of the world, payday loans
    have become extremely popular in Canada as well.
