I grew up in Birmingham which has a big African - Caribbean population and ate a lot of curry goat and got many a tip along the way! ( note the name; it's never goat curry!) If you don't want to make the curry goat yourself, you'll usually find it on the menu of a Caribbean restaurant. If you're in Birmingham and fancy something less conventional try the Island Hut takeaway on Lozells Road, Lozells. Their curry goat is pretty famous!

Now a word on sourcing your goat...

Unless you live in an area with a large Caribbean or East Asian population you may well have problems getting it. You can however buy goat meat online both in the UK and USA. If you really can't find it, it is possible to use mutton. It certainly won't be the same, but still delicious.

Ingredients for the Caribbean Curry Goat Recipe

This should make enough Curry Goat for 4 to 5 servings

600g diced goat meat (shoulder is popular)

3 tbs Caribbean / Jamaican / West Indian curry powder *

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp allspice

2tsp of crushed coriander seeds

120ml vegetable oil

4cm chunk of root ginger finely chopped

Large bunch of spring onions (scallions) finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped

½ - 1 chilli (scotch bonnet or bird eye) finely chopped

Approx 900ml stock. (Lamb or vegetable is fine)

Caribbean/Jamaican/West Indian curry powder can be found in

Caribbean shops and major supermarkets. If you can get it, try "Chief hot and spicy duck and goat curry powder" or "Dunns River hot and spicy curry powder" is an acceptable substitute.

How To Make The Caribbean Curry Goat

The day before you want to eat your Caribbean Curry Goat mix together the curry powder, coriander seeds, allspice and thyme. Put your diced goat in a large freezer bag, tip in the mix, tie the bag and massage really well into the meat. Leave in the fridge overnight

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees centigrade.

Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the goat meat until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside. Tip in the onions, garlic, ginger and chilli and fry until soft. Return the goat to the pan and cover with stock. This needs to come about 10cm above the level of the meat. Bring to the boil, and put on the lid.

Remove from the heat and place in the oven for 1 ½ hours until the meat is tender. Remove the meat from the stock and simmer until it is reduced by about half. Return the meat to the pan to coat and serve with The Very Best Rice and Peas.

      I shoot them when I need some. Most people around here seem to think they are only good for dog food.

      I find goat meat readily available at several places that I shop...usually not the supermarket, but I live near a neighborhood with a substantial Caribbean population, and I think it is also commonly used in Indian food, and there's a big Indian population here too. I find many different ethnic groceries and markets that cater to a diverse audience carry goat meat.

      I have found chunked goat meat at the Shop-Rite in West Chester, PA - while searching for a recipe online I found it listed for the Shop-Rite in Washington as well.

      Just a note to say that if you are looking for goat meat, and you can't find it elsewhere, it may be worth checking your local Tesco store (if it has a Halal counter). I found packs of mixed goat meat at our store this morning, costing around £3.50 for a half kilo pack. You may find that it is much cheaper though if you can find a local butcher or farm shop selling goat meat.

      I love curry goat and can't wait to try your recipe! I know that goat meat can be difficult to find though, I'm always looking out for places that might sell goat. I found a place in West Yorkshire that has an online farm shop which has goat meat for delivery, they may also have it in their regular farm shop, in Bierley Nr Bradford, but I'm not certain. Anyway, the place is called Model Farm Online Shop, just google it.
