  • 3 pounds Goat meat cut into bite-size
  • 1 teaspoon salt or add to taste
  • 2 teaspoons bouillon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 6 Pimento berries all spice
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger grated
  • 2 bell peppers I used green and red - diced
  • 4 stalks thyme
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper or habanero
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 spring onions
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil divided into two
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 4.5 cups chicken stock/water


  • Wash the goat meat in water and vinegar or lime and drain the excess water. I like to repeat this about two to three times.
  • Season the meat with salt, bouillon powder, black pepper, allspice, and 1 tablespoon of curry powder in a large bowl. Mix well.
  • Throw in the diced onion, grated ginger, bell pepper, thyme, scotch bonnet, minced garlic, spring onion, and 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix well and leave to marinate overnight or for at least 2 hours.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oil into the pan on medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder and cook until fragrant – about a minute. Be sure not to burn the curry powder.
  • Carefully remove the goat meat from the marinade (keep the marinade). Drop into the oil, one at a time, and let it sear on all sides. You can do this in batches if you have a small pan.
  • Stir in the stock and marinade, cover, and leave to cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the meat is tender.
  • Add the potatoes and cook for another 20 to 30 minutes or till the potatoes become tender. Adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  • Serve over rice and peas or white rice.
