If you ever travel to Jamaica, then you will know that Curry Mutton is a very traditional dish. I have come up with this recipe which is simple to make and will give you a real flavour of the Caribbean.

The Black Farmer
Curry Goat


  • 1.5kg goat meat (cut in chunks)
  • 30ml cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced Garlic
  • 1-2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 4-5 Tbsp. Curry powder
  • 1- teaspoon Black pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 2-3 medium potatoes Diced
  • 2 medium Carrots Diced
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper (adjust to suit taste buds or replace with any hot pepper)


  1. Season the goat meat with curry powder, cooking oil, turmeric, black pepper, salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate for at least 3 hours for great flavour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot over a medium heat. When hot add the goat meat and sauté stirring frequently to release any browned bits off the bottom of the pot, until goat meat is browned all over.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, onions, thyme, spring onions and scotch bonnet pepper. Stir for about a minute.
  4. Then pour in just enough water to cover the goat. Bring to the boil and let it simmer until tender for about 2 hours or more, stirring occasionally and adding more water as needed.
  5. About 15-20 minutes before you remove from the stove add the diced potatoes and carrots. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender, if you want really thick curry goat sauce let the potatoes cook even more.
  6. You may adjust thickness of sauce by adding more water or stock.
  7. Serve with rice and a green salad
