WATCH: Raquel’s Authentic Jamaican Curry Goat

Raquel, the mastermind behind Raquel’s Caribbean Cuisine, invites you to experience the tantalizing flavors of authentic Jamaican-style curry goat, prepared the old-school way with no shortcuts. With two and a half to three pounds of fresh, perfectly seasoned goat meat.

Raquel begins the culinary journey by marinating the meat with a blend of jerk seasoning, pimento seeds, all-purpose seasoning, and a mix of Jamaican curry powders for that rich color and flavor. After marinating for two and a half hours, the meat is ready to be transformed into a mouthwatering masterpiece.

Seasoning the dutch pot

In her dutch pot, Raquel combines cooking oil, curry powder, chopped garlic, and onion, allowing the curry to toast and infuse the meat with robust flavors. Covered and cooked under low heat, the goat meat releases its natural juices, creating a savory sauce without the need for additional liquid. This slow-cooking method ensures that every bite is packed with flavor, taking the dish from ordinary to extraordinary.

Adding the secret ingredient

After simmering for 45 minutes, Raquel adds carrots, potatoes, pimento, peppers, scallions, Scotch bonnet pepper, fresh thyme, and the secret ingredient: coconut milk. This final touch elevates the curry to new heights, adding a creamy richness that perfectly complements the tender goat meat.

Jamaicans enjoy curry goat with traditional accompaniments like rice and peas, fried plantains, or boiled dumplings. These hearty side dishes complement the rich and flavorful curry goat, creating a satisfying and authentic Jamaican meal. Some also enjoy it with steamed vegetables or roti bread for a delightful culinary experience that captures the essence of Jamaican cuisine.

After a final 10 minutes of cooking, the curry goat is ready to be served over rice and vegetables, promising a dining experience that will leave taste buds tingling and hearts content.

Join Raquel on a delicious adventure and savor some authentic flavors of Jamaican cuisine with her mouthwatering curry goat recipe.
