I’m very excited about today’s recipe as I share how I cook goat meat for the first time. 

If you’ve heard of curry goat, you must have heard of stew goat. 

You haven’t? 

Don’t worry; you may not be alone, as Brown Stewed Goat is not very popular in the Caribbean. 

However, it’s not uncommon to see recipes in some parts of the world, such as Africa, cook goat stew. 

Since it’s the holiday season, my family has decided to make this Christmas even more merry by butchering goats to make all sorts of goat recipes. 

In the Caribbean, it’s traditional for us to cook a big feast for the Christmas holidays.

Our traditional feast would include curry goat, fried chicken, curry mutton, baked chicken, rice and peas, Black cake, rum punch, and much more. 

Growing up, we didn’t always feast as lavishly as we’d like, but I’ve always been grateful to spend time with my family and enjoy the best we could afford. 

I’m even more grateful for this year as this will be my second Christmas in the Cayman Islands, as well as being able to cook my first Christmas dinner for D and me.

What Is Stew Goat?

This delicious dish is goat meat braised and slow-cooked in a brown gravy until the meat is soft and tender. 

Most goat meat, especially in the Caribbean, is curried, but some cook the goat meat in a brown stew gravy.

  • Goat Meat – essential to the recipe. 
  • Seasonings – season your meat with these ingredients: all-purpose seasoning, cumin, pimento seeds, ketchup, ginger, green seasoning, browning sauce, jalapeno powder, and salt.
  • Vegetables – carrots, potatoes, and bell pepper
  • Aromatics – escallion, fresh thyme, scotch bonnet pepper

How To Make Jamaican Stew Goat

When I first decided to make this recipe, I wanted to see how others had done it. 

However, upon researching, I didn’t find many Caribbean-type recipes that have done stew goat. 

Which is okay because it means I can stand out from the crowd with this incredible fall-of-the-bone recipe. 

  1. Remove excess fat from meat. Wash and rinse meat with water, vinegar, and lime juice. Pat dry and set aside. 
  2. Season meat in a large bowl with green seasoning, browning sauce, jalapeno powder, cumin, ketchup, ginger, all-purpose seasoning, salt, and pimento seeds. Marinate overnight or 2 hours before cooking.
  3. In a pressure cooker pot, heat oil on medium to high heat. 
  4. Add seasoned goat meat to the pot and stir to allow the meat to spring its own juices. 
  5. Allow to cook for 5-7 minutes. Cover the meat with water, then cover the pot with a pressure cooker cover and cook for 45 minutes to an hour. 
  6. Remove pot from heat and allow to cool before removing cover. 
  7. Add back to the flames, then add escallion, thyme, and bell peppers. Stir and allow to cook for 5 minutes. 
  8. Add potatoes, carrots, and scotch bonnet pepper to the pot and cook until the veggies are soft and tender. 
  9. Remove from heat and serve.

Serving Suggestions
