Raise your glass to another day of Jamaica, turn the YouTube on and play a little island music. Maybe I should say raise the Red Stripe, if you're a beer fan as my husband is.
Yesterday we had a recipe for Meat Patties, today:
Jamaican Curried Goat (or lamb)
2 tbsp. cooking oil
1 lb. boneless goat mutton or lamb, cut in 1" cubes
2 large onions, peeled and finel sliced
2 tsp. allspice (ground)
2 cups stock, consomme or bouillon
1 tbsp. wine vinegar
1 tsp. curry powder (or more to taste)
salt to taste
pinch cayenne pepper
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
Brown meat quickly in oil. Remove then cook onion in oil until soft but not brown. Stir in curry powder and allspice. Cook stirring for a few moments, then stir in stock, vinegar, salt and cayenne. Return meat to pan and simmer slowly for 2 hours. Add bayleaf about 30 minutes before it's done. Just before serving, stir in Tabasco sauce and serve surrounded by rice (Serves 4)
This is a bit spicy so I recommend a light sweet wine. Maybe a blush or a moscato would be a nice change.
Anyone out there who can share some Jamaican or island recipes?
