  • 1 kg Goat meat
  • 3 Scotch bonnets
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Stock cubes
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash the goat meat and put in a pot. Season with 1 stock cube  and salt and boil.
    K’s Cuisine tip: Do not add water to boil the goat meat. Boil on very low heat so the water that comes from the meat doesn’t dry up too quick.
  • When the goat meat is cooked soft increase the heat and let the stock dry up with the meat.
    Tip: This ensures all flavour from the goat meat is retained.
  • When the water dries up you should get a bit of fat from the goat meat settle in the pot. Keep this aside.
  • Cut the goat meat in bite size, pour in oven tray and grill in the oven.
