If you’ve never eaten goat before, you might want to try this goat curry. This Jamaican curried goat is so popular in the Caribbean that when I first tried it, I was addicted!

goat meat (sometimes called) mutton) may taste a little gamey, but the curry goat spice adds flavor and richness to this dish.

The recipe is similar to another favorite in my house, lamb curry. It also has a more earthy and nutty taste compared to lamb meat.

Where can I get goat meat?

Depending on where you live, finding goat meat may not be so easy. Your best bet might be to visit your local butcher. You can get meat. You can buy it at African, Asian, or Hispanic stores, but it can be a little expensive.

If you have access to a butcher, remember that older goat meat is usually tougher. So if you want softer goat meat, ask for meat from a young goat.

Goat meat can be difficult to cook, but using an Instant Pot makes the process much easier and faster.

Goat meat can be tricky to prep because of the long cooking time, but pressure cooking with an Instant Pot makes the process easier and faster.If you are in the Instant Pot market, this is Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker Good choice.

Goat meat is fairly tough and takes a long time to cook on the stove. It also needs to be monitored to make sure it has enough water so it doesn’t burn.

If you don’t have a pressure cooker, I’ll also show you how to make this curry on the stove.

How to make this recipe

Wash and drain the goat meat. Finely chop the onion, ginger, tomato and red pepper, and finely chop the garlic.

  1. Put the Instant Pot on sauté mode and add the olive oil. Sauté the chopped onion, garlic and ginger over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  2. Then add chopped tomatoes, red bell pepper, cayenne pepper and bouillon powder and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour in a glass of water and add goat meat, curry powder, paprika, cumin, salt and cinnamon. You can also use beef broth or chicken broth instead of water. Mix everything together and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Add coconut milk and stir well again. Be sure to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  5. Set the Instant Pot to manual mode and cook the goat curry on high pressure for 30 minutes. It takes a few minutes to come to pressure. When the timer rings, naturally release the pressure in the Instant Pot.
  6. Return Instant Pot to sauté mode and add salt if desired. Simmering the goat curry makes it even thicker. The curry will continue to thicken even after the instant pot is turned off, so you don’t have to worry about the curry becoming too watery.
  7. Garnish with cilantro or parsley and serve!
