It’s kind of surprising to me that one of my most popular recipes on the blog is my slow cooker goat curry. I honestly had no idea that so many of you eat and enjoy goat meat. I absolutely love it and it really makes me happy to see that you all do too! I make my goat curry all the time and while it’s definitely worth the wait… I’m an impatient girl.
I want a big bowl of goat curry that tastes slow cooked… BUT I want it fast. I like my curry… in a hurry.
Since I want dinner on the table ASAP, I figure you guys do too – which is why I’m sharing my recipe for goat curry made in an Instant Pot, an electronic pressure cooker. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, I’m sure a regular pressure cooker will work just fine. The reason I love the Instant Pot is because I can saute the aromatics (onion, garlic, ginger, spices) and cook the curry all in one pot. It’s an amazing device that makes clean up a breeze.
To make this goat stew even more comforting, I cut some potatoes in half and added them to the pot. I prefer eating this curry over basmati rice or cauli-rice, but sometimes I’ll just eat it by itself. It’s one of my favorite recipes to make during the colder months.
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 2 pounds goat meat (or lamb) with bone
- 2 onions, diced
- 1 ½ inch knob fresh ginger, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 cloves (whole)
- 4 cardamom pods
- 1 tablespoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 2 teaspoons salt (adjust to taste)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon kashmiri chili powder(if using cayenne use a little less)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 2 (14 ounce) cans organic diced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon garam masala, add more to taste
- ½ cup water
- ½ pound potatoes, cut in half
- Press the “Sauté” button on the Instant Pot, and add the oil and goat meat to the pot.
- Once the meat begins to brown, add the onion, garlic, and spices. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
- Pour in the water, diced tomatoes and potatoes, then cover and lock the lid. Press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button on the Instant Pot, then press the “Meat/Stew” button to begin the pressure cooking. It will automatically be set for 35 minutes. Increase the time to 45 minutes. Make sure the steam valve is closed.
- Once the stew is done, the Instant Pot will automatically switch to the “Keep Warm” mode. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
- If you'd like for the dish to have a thicker consistency, press the "Sauté”" button to reduce the liquid.
