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 4 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 5 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.
