We recently hosted a dinner party for 12 and I was so excited to cook some of my favorite flavors… Curried goat stew, honey teriyaki chicken drumsticks, yellow rice, Ghanaian bean stew with smoked fish, and plantains, of course. It was quite the feast!
Curried Goat Stew
Because goat takes a few hours stewed before it is tender I used my beloved Instant Pot and pressure cooked the meat for 15 minutes on high. I seasoned it with 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder so it would take on the seasonings while it cooked.
After the meat cooked, I reserved the cooking liquid and browned the goat in ¼ cup coconut oil. Then I added the rest of the ginger, garlic, and curry powders and cooked these until fragrant. Next I added sliced onions. Sometimes I use blended onions when I want a thicker, creamier stew.
Finally I added a jar of tomato sauce and 3 cups of reserved goat stock. I simmered and reduced the stew for about 20-30 minutes and topped with green onions.
Recipes for honey teriyaki drumsticks, yellow rice, and beans coming soon!
- 3 pounds goat stew meat
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne or other pepper (optional)
- 1 heaping Tablespoon curry powder
- 1 large or 2 medium onion, sliced, chopped or blended
- 1 25 oz. jar of tomato sauce
- 2 green onions, sliced
- Boil goat meat with 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. This will take 15 minutes in the Instant Pot on high pressure or about 1 hour simmered on the stove. Reserve the stock.
- Add ¼ cup coconut oil to the pot and brown the goat.
- Add the salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, and curry powders and cook until fragrant. Add the chopped or sliced onions. You can also use blended onion at this point if you prefer a thicker, creamier stew.
- Next add tomato sauce and 2 cups of reserved goat stock.
- Bring to a boil and let it simmer to incorporate the flavors. About 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally adding goat stock or water if needed. (Tip: Remove some of the liquid from this goat stew and use it to make DELICIOUS rice to pair!)
- Sprinkle the green onions on top. Taste and adjust seasonings and thickness of broth as desired.
