Caribbean Style Goat with Potatoes in a Dutch Oven

Jamaican style goat and potato
Recently I looked at doing curried goat in a slow cooker. Today we will take a look at doing a take on a traditional Caribbean spicy goat dish with potatoes.

While this can be made in any heavy saucepan, I like doing it on the stove-top in a Dutch Oven.

First you want to take 2 lbs. of cubed bone-in goat meat and season it thoroughly with the following:

Approx. 2 tablespoons of curry powder ( you want the goat totally coated)
2 tablespoons sea salt (or to taste)
Season goat and let rest in the fridge 3-4 hours min.
2 tablespoons freshly ground pepper
6 minced garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of a Caribbean style hot sauce of your choice. (Or to taste). I used Grace's Scotch Bonnet based Hot Pepper sauce.

Toss the goat to coat with all these ingredients and then put in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours and for as long as 12 hours.

When you are ready to cook the goat first brown it in the dutch oven on the stove-top in olive or vegetable oil.

Simmer in water and stock for one hour
When the goat has been browned add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of chicken stock, 2 bay leaves, 2 sprigs of thyme, 1 tablespoon of soya sauce and, if you have it, 1 teaspoon of browning liquid. Also add 1 large chopped onion. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer, uncovered on the stove top for 1 hour.

After an hour taste. At this point you can add salt, more curry powder and more hot sauce to taste if desired.

Add potato and tomato paste to simmer for another 1/2 hour

Then add 4 quartered (cut into four pieces) medium sized uncooked, unpeeled potatoes. Also add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste. Bring it all to a boil again, reduce the heat and simmer for approximately another 30 minutes.

The goat should be fall-off-the-bone and the
potatoes truly delicious. The dish will also have a nice, thick gravy.

This is perfect served with rice or rice and peas, a green salad, extra hot sauce on the side and ice cold lagers or a hearty red wine.
