    You can also cook the oxtail in the oven and let it slow cook in there, again a couple sprigs of fresh thyme would go well, fresh thyme is used a lot in Jamaican dishes, but I suppose if you have no access to fresh thyme then use the dried, though the flavour is not quite the same. More old time recipes also have broad beans aka lima beans and spinners dumplings in the oxtail, that is optional of course. A good interpretation nonetheless and I would eat it just on looks alone, a very clean and presentable plate. Kemi, please do not spread that lie about ketchup is used a lot in Jamaican cooking, some ppl use it in their stew chicken, but outside of that and kids putting it on their eggs it is not used a lot in Jamaican cooking, and should not have been used in your curry goat dish at all, I felt a pain in my soul when I saw you dropped it in Jamaicans use Jamaican style curry, regular curry on the shelf is more of an Indian curry and have a very different flavour, many Jamaicans use Betapac brand, very authentic. If you don’t have access to Jamaican style curry, then regular ground turmeric will work, you just have to season your pot more. If you have fresh turmeric growing in your yard you can pull it up and grate it in the pot, doesn’t have to be store bought. Jamaicans prefer to eat ram goat for their curry goat, I guess they like the gamier flavour of the meat.

    Happy to hear you love Jamaica and the cuisine, they do have some fantastic dishes. Try the pepper shrimps on your next visit if you have not already. If you get to go around the island, the best place for them is Middle Quarters. Also try the bammy, a cassava flatbread traditionally eaten with fried fish, but goes great with anything. Keep cooking, doll!
