Special equipment: Pressure Cooker

Total Time: 2 hr 30 min

Yield: 4 to 5 servings


Add the goat meat, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1 tablespoon grated ginger and 3 cups water to a pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. 


On the stovetop in a deep pot, add the oil, curry powder, remaining tablespoon minced garlic and grated ginger and cook over low heat until all the ingredients combine together in a paste, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the scallions, black pepper, scotch bonnet pepper, thyme and onions and let simmer 2 to 3 minutes.


Add the goat and cooking liquid to the curry paste. Add more water if necessary, and simmer until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Be careful not to overcook as the meat will get mushy and fall apart.


Add the potatoes, sliced carrot and pimento to the meat mixture and simmer until the goat is tender and the potatoes are cooked, about 1/2 hour more. Add the Ram-it-Up 2 to 3 minutes before complete. Serve hot with plain rice and vegetable salad.
