Goat curry in the BBC GoodFood Magazine

Blogger Miss Lou was featured in the BBC GoodFood Magazine, cooking our goat.

In case you can’t see the recipe in the photo here it is:

  • 1kg dice goat (or 1.5kg of goat dice on the bone)
  • 4tbsp curry powder
  • 1tbsp turmeric
  • 1tsp black black pepper
  • 1tsp Jamaican allspice (ground pimento)
  • 3tsp salt, to taste
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra to serve
  • 2tsp minced garlic
  • 6-7 thyme sprigs
  • 5 tbsp oil (vegetable or coconut)
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into cubes
  • 1 medium potato, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 Scotch bonnet chilli, left whole


  1. Put the goat in a large mixing bowl and add all the ingredients except the oil, carrot, potato and chilli. Rub everything into the meat until well coated. Put in the fridge to marinate for at least 1hr or overnight.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan over a medium to high heat and add the meat. Stir until browned on all sides. Pour in enough hot water to just cover the meat (about 800ml). Put the lid on and allow to simmer over a low heat for 2 hours, or until the meat is soft and tender. Keep checking and stirring every 30 mins and add a little more water if it reduces too much, to prevent the pan from drying out.
  3. For the last 30 mins of cooking add the carrots, potatoes and chilli. Remove the lid and simmer for a little longer to thicken, if you like. Stir and season to taste, then scatter over some spring onion.
