Since first rating this I have tried a few other recipes for curried goat, from different cookery books, and this is by far the best.

Made this with lamb, since I couldn't buy any goat, and it was delicious! I can't wait to have it again! (I reduced the amount of pepper sauce though - thought 1tbsp tabasco might make it too hot).

Thanks for sharing your recipe, I will marinate overnight then cook it tomorrow and post my comment. My friend is from St Lucia and also cooks a mean lamb curry, so if it is as yummy as hers, I will have them over for supper !!!
