    1. Combine cubes of goat, chilli pepper, curry powder, garlic, salt and black pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate to allow flavours to blend, 1 hour to overnight.
    2. Remove goat meat mixture from bowl and pat dry, reserving marinade. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook meat in batches, browning on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes per batch. Transfer meat to a plate. Add onion and celery to the pot; cook and stir until onion begins to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.
    3. Stir browned goat meat into onion mixture. Add reserved marinade, vegetable stock and bay leaf. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour. Stir in potatoes; simmer until potatoes and meat are tender, 35 to 45 minutes more.
    4. Remove pot from heat, skim off surface fat and remove bay leaf.

    We liked this a lot, but it was slightly too "peppery" for us. I used jalapenos, like the submitter (because I'm a spice wimp) - but I think mine were super hot, because my skin is still burning from removing the ribs and seeds. Next time I'll cut it back to just one (and use gloves)! I threw in a couple of carrots, and cooked it in my cast iron dutch oven, initially on the stove, but then put into a 250 degree oven for 3 hours. The goat meat fell right off of the bone. We ate it with bread, but this would go great with rice too. Thanks for sharing this recipe!  -  11 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I loved it and so did my husband...I made several changes to the original recipe. I used more curry powder and I don't know how much more because I'm a sight cook not measured. I used rice, frozen peas and carrots instead of potatoes. I didn't use cayenne pepper I used a jerk seasoning for heat. I cooked it longer and used more liquid and allowed it to cook down till it was just enough to add my veggies which I returned it to boiling and when it did I added my minute rice and then turned it off. Tastes great.  -  25 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
