Peeeerrrrrrrfection! One thing I would say though is leave the Goat to marinate overnight if you can :-)

Hi I have added some loose Pimento seeds for extra flavour, also in the method it asks for you to Soften the tomatoes, onions, (peppers)and garlic in some olive oil and add it to the meat. Immerse the ingredients in double their quantity of water or stock and bring to the boil.but there's no (peppers) in the the ingredients list Only fresh ground pepper, so I added half a red pepper and half a orange pepper chopped and deseeded, as for the taste I'll let you know soon as its still cooking, I've already tried Levi's roots version carnt wait to see which is better:)

As someone who is more than happy to describe myself as an expert on curried goat ( Born in Jamaica),this is certainly not the way to cook curried goat! As a start you do not use tomatoes (This can almost certainly cause the meat to 'go off' in a short time). Ingredients required: a.Spring onion b.Scotch Bonnet Pepper (Please avoid using the seeds) c.Pimento seed d.Ginger e.Seasoning salt (Very little-This isn't a must) f.Salt g. Jamican curry or Jamaican Indian Curry (This can be very difficult get in the UK but this makes a 'million' difference to taste). h. Tyme

You can buy great quality goat meat from a respectable Halal butcher or a local farm. Lamb is good but Goat is much tastier. Cooking this way also means it'll taste better with the meat falling off the bone. It's also nicer if cooked a day ahead. It is important to marinade the meat prior to cooking.
