Trim meat, cut into bite-size pieces and wash in a mixture of water and vinegar.

Add 1 tablespoon curry powder, chopped onion, scallion, garlic, ginger, thyme, Scotch bonnet pepper, black pepper and salt; rub the seasonings into the meat, cover and put to marinate for two hours.

Heat vegetable oil in a heavy-bottom skillet over medium heat and add the remaining one tablespoon curry powder. Add the marinated meat and allow to sear. Turn the meat and add four cups boiling water. Cover and allow to simmer for about 1 hour 20 minutes or until the meat is tender.

Add the diced potato and cook for five minutes. Fold in the sliced carrot and pimento berries and cook for five minutes.

To serve: Serve with plain rice, vegetable salad and mango chutney.

Method note: Sear - To brown meat quickly by subjecting it to very high heat either in a skillet, under a broiler or in a very hot oven. The object of searing is to seal in the meat's juices.
