The Jamaican Curry Goat is a rich and healthy dish. We say “rich” because goat meat (mutton) has so many benefits, such as fewer saturated fats and high protein, making it suitable for those on a diet.
It’s also effortless to prepare. It is said to originate from Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. And while it is a staple in these parts, it is also a staple in the Caribbean, Jamaica, Indonesia, etc. It has a succulent and delicious taste because it is full of flavor.

How to Make Jamaican Curry Goat
- Combine the onions, garlic, ginger, and scotch bonnet pepper in a mixing bowl.
- Add salt, curry powder, and thyme to taste.
- Place the meat in it, turn it with a spoon, and let it sit for a few minutes. You may leave it out overnight or put it in the fridge for 3 hours.
- In a pot, heat the oil.
NB: A crock cooker or an instant pot could be used.
- Saute sliced Scott Bonnet peppers and sliced onion for 10 minutes on low heat once it’s hot.
- In a medium-sized pot, heat the marinade. Continue flipping and stirring until the goat is browned in colour.
- Then add the curry, thyme, curry leaves, tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste.
- Finally, add enough water to allow it to simmer for 30 minutes.
- Add your potatoes when the meat is tender.
NB: If you want it thick, keep cooking the potatoes and adding the coconut milk. Allow them to boil in the sauce for 10 minutes after that.
