  • 2 lbs Goat Meat of Mutton cut into chunky pieces
  • 2 tbsp Browning or Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Meat Seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 1 stalk Scallion mined
  • 2 sprig Thyme
  • 10 whole Pimento or All Spice
  • 1/2 oz Cooking Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 medium Potato medium dice
  • 1 medium Carrot medium dice


  • Cut the goat meat into medium chunky pieces.
  • Wash meat with vinegar/lime or lemon and rinse it thoroughly.
  • Add your choice of meat seasoning, salt, black pepper, browning/soy sauce, 1 clove minced garlic. (This is optional but you can marinate your meat for a 1hr)
  • In a wide saute pan or your pot of choice add cooking oil to medium-high heat. Then after the oil is hot add half of the goat meat to the hot pan, stir the meat for a minute then add the next half. This should be sizzling hot thus causing each side to brown a bit.
  • After browning the meat add 3 cups of water to the pot, stir and cover the pot. Cook under medium heat. (Optional: for a quicker process you can use a presser cooker using the same method)
  • Continue to add water if the water dries out. Do not pour too much water at a time.
  • Cook for 1hr 15minutes or until the meat is tender to your liking. 
  • Add Potatoes and let it cook for 5 minutes then add carrot and the remaining seasoning (onion, garlic, scallion, thyme, and pimento) and simmer until the flavor releases and the gravy thickens.


  • Browning is the meat is the process of darkening the meat so please do not burn meat.
  • Soy Sauce can be used but it is best to use the browning sauce.
  • Adding the carrots too early can cause the meat to taste sweet.
