Stewed Goat Meat Recipe

This stewed goat meat recipe first happened when my mother decided to throw me a birthday party and it showed up on the menu. Curry goat is a must at Caribbean ‘get togethers and that was the intent she started off with. After realizing too late that she had no curry she decided to improvise and the dish you see here was the result. The results were so delicious I set about recreating the dish in order to have a recipe. It took a couple tries but finally I was satisfied. If you are familiar with curry goat you will notice that this dish has a similar flavor. The main difference between the seasonings in this stewed goat meat recipe and curry goat is the absence of turmeric. Serve this stewed goat meat with rice, rice and peas or roasted veggies.
