How long does it take for the goat to cook?

The average cooking time for goat meat in an instant pot is about 30 minutes. The exact time for cooking depends on the size of the meat piece and the quantity of the meat. Boneless goat meat cooks faster than the one with bone. The longer you cook the meat the more tender it becomes.

How Can I Thicken Up My Instant Pot Curry Goat?

The stew will thicken up by itself if you don’t add too much liquid and a little bit of tomato paste. Also, the starch in the potato will release into the stew to make it thicker. Also, leaving it to simmer uncovered a little longer will reduce the liquid.

If all these options don’t work for you, try mixing a tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot powder and little water to form a thick paste and add it to your boiling curry.

On the other hand, if you notice that the curry goat is too thick, you can lighten it by adding water or meat stock.

Where Can I find Goat Meat?

Depending on where you live, you can get goat meat from local whole foods stores or directly from the butcher. You can also get it from Hispanic or African stores because goat meat is not common in regular stores here in the united states.
