curry goat with white rice and Jamaican cabbage slaw

I cannot recall attending a Caribbean celebration where Curry Goat was not on the menu. Curry is popular the world over and goat meat is especially popular with people of African descent. When the two are combined you get one of the Caribbean’s most popular dishes. Curry goat is thought to have originated in Jamaica, though the origin is uncertain. Still the combination of West African cooking (Many Jafricans originate from West Africa) and Indian flavors (Jamaica had a large migration of Indians from 1840 to 1915) are unmistakable.

To make this dish goat, also called mutton, is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices then stewed until tender.  See the pictures and complete recipe below for complete information. Do like the locals do and serve curry goat over a bed of white rice with a simple green salad or Jamaican- style coleslaw. The recipe below is my version of the curried goat I grew up eating. Add or subtract ingredients to suit your tastebuds. The same recipe can be use to make curried beef.
