Prep Goat Meat: Trim and Rinse - Using kitchen shears, trim any excess fat. Then, place goat meat in a large bowl and add cool water with either some vinegar or lemon juice.
Prep Goat Meat: Season -
To the large bowl with the goat meat add dried and fresh seasoning. Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge overnight, or at least a few hours.
Slow Cooked Jamaican Curry Goat - Heat a large dutch oven or pot over high heat and add vegetable oil. When hot, add the goat meat and cover with a heavy lid. Cover and allow to cook on medium heat for approx. an hour to an hour and a half (or more depending on the meat).
Periodically check the pot to ensure the water hasn’t dried out before the meat has cooked and become tender to your liking. Keep adding additional cups of water until desired tenderness has been reached.
Add additional seasoning. Then add one cup of water (or more) to cover the potatoes and meat. Leave to simmer on medium-low heat until the potato are fork-tender and the sauce has thickened. Serve hot and enjoy!
