Prep time: 15 mins, Cook time: 2 hours 30 mins, Total time: 2 hour 45 mins

  • Mutton
  • 1 ½ Onions
  • 5 Spring Onions
  • Fresh Thyme
  • 8 Cloves Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Mild Curry Powder
  • All Purpose Seasoning
  • Mutton Seasoning
  • Goat/Beef Seasoning
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • Coarse Black Pepper
  • 3 Carrots
  • 4 large Potatoes
  • 1 Scotch Bonnet


IMPORTANT: Pre-season the mutton at least 24 hours before cooking. (48hrs is ideal)

1. Wash the Mutton with lemon Juice or white vinegar removing all excess fat.
2. Dice ½ an onion, 2 spring onions and 5 garlic cloves. Using a glass bowl add a generous amount of olive oil onto the mutton followed by the onions, spring onions and garlic.

3. Season the mutton with All Purpose Seasoning, Mutton Seasoning, Goat/Beef Seasoning, Mild Curry Powder, Coarse Black Pepper & Tomato Ketchup

NOTE: Wear gloves when seasoning the mutton.

4. Cover the seasoned mutton with cling film and leave it in the fridge for 24-48 hrs.


5. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a pot, add 1/2 a diced onion, 2 spring onions, 3 finely chopped garlic cloves and fresh thyme. Stir for about 3-5 mins on a medium heat.
6. Add the pre-seasoned mutton and stir until all the mutton has browned. Cover the mutton and let it cook for 2 hours, checking and stirring it every 15-20 mins.

Note: Add a layer of foil to cover the pot so the mutton can become tender.

7. After 2 hours add 1/2 a diced onion, 1 spring onions, carrots, potatoes and 1 whole scotch bonnet. Leave to cook for another 30 mins.

Note: The scotch bonnet is to add flavour not spice. Add the whole scotch bonnet making sure it remains whole and doesn’t pierce.
