Vegan Jamaican Curry Goat

Yields: 6 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 10 Mins Cook Time: 40 Mins Total Time: 50 Mins

Growing up in Moss Side in Manchester, my partner’s youth was heavily influenced by Caribbean food and culture. One of his favourite meals was curry goat with rice and peas, served from a late-night eatery that also functioned as a taxi cab office. The curry goat was not just spicy but also flavourful, and very warming in those perpetual UK winter nights.

When we discovered Meat Magic here in the Philippines, he immediately thought of recreating this dish. As a sign from the universe that we had to make this dish, my scotch bonnet plant gave me one beautiful pepper just for this dish. It was meant to be.

The cooked texture of the Meat Magic is surprisingly similar to stewed goat. Best of all, this vegan Jamaican curry goat cooks much quicker than actual goat meat and zero goats had to die for it. Now, I wasn’t sure what to expect when he made this dish as I’d never had Jamaican curry goat before. On first taste, I was taken aback by how full-on and “goaty” the flavour was. Woo, it blew my mind!

This vegan Jamaican curry goat is even more excellent after being in the fridge overnight. So, this recipe is for 6 servings.
