So many ways to curry!

Curry is a staple in many different cultures. I come from the Caribbean curry world and we do not mess about when it comes to mastering these curry dishes. Having said that there are so many different ways to execute this dish and I love playing around with the flavors.

This recipe is a really good one to start with and doesn’t involve too much technique, just patience. The video below will show you another version and I’ll walk you through more of the technique in person.

  • Place the goat in a ziplock or cover bowl and put in the fridge for four hours or ideally overnight.
    Marinating curry goat
  • Once your goat is done marinating, on the stovetop, place a large pot over medium heat and put in a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Sprinkle the remaining curry powder in the oil and cook for a few minutes and then add the goat meat.
  • Once the meat has a nice brown color or sear to it, add 2 cups of water or stock and the bay leaves and bring to a boil. Once it is boiling, turn down to a medium low heat and cover.
  • Cook for a minimum of two hours or until meat is tender.
  • Alternatively, if you have a sous vide machine available, vacuum seal the marinated goat and sous vide at 200 degrees for a minimum of 6 hrs. Then move to next step.
