MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH GOOD!!!
I prepared in the crockpot (slow cooker) combined all liquids and poured over meat. Cooked on low for 8 hours - while at work. Came home to the most delicious recipe I've ever found on the internet. Served over white rice! Can't wait to get home to have left overs!
I made the recipe exactly as printed. It was way too sweet for me. I would advise using unsweetened coconut and only half as much, reduce or eliminate the brown sugar, use only half as much coconut milk, twice as much sour cream, and only 1-2 tsp allspice (an entire tablespoon was too too much for my taste!)I would cut way down on the butter as well; my refrigerated leftovers developed a layer of hardened butter a half-inch thick. I think the recipe has great potential, as I love Caribbean dishes.
This was great. I threw everything in the crockpot for 7 or 8 hours and then served it over rice. Yum!
Super! My husband and guests raved about this one! I followed this recipe exactly as suggested except added the toasted, flaked coconut to the rice. I used Basmati rice and cooked it in half coconut milk and half water. I also fried plantains for something on the side. I will definitely do this one again! Go Bucs!!!!!
this was sweet with a small kick, delicious and incredibly easy to make. creates lots of sauce to serve over rice. i seared then used the crockpot and only about half of the shredded coconut. thanks, rick!
This was good but not knock my socks off good. It tasted a little flat--something was missing. As one of the reviewers said, the color is a little unappetizing. I didn't find it too sweet. Other reviewers probably felt it was too sweet because they may have used cream of coconut instead of coconut milk.
I'm afraid I have to give this one 2-thumbs down. The color wasn't very appetizing and the flavor was worse. I've been on the South Beach diet for the past 2 weeks and this recipe looked like the carbohydrate amount would be acceptable. I served it with brown rice which was OK, but I hate I didn't get to have something really good for supper when I get so little to eat at all.
I made it exactly like the recipe was written but the steak was tough as shoe leather. Maybe I should blame it on the cow(?)
This is the first recipe in 8 years I have made from this recipe site I was this disappointed in.
Flavorful, easy, wonderful. Skipped the sour cream and used half of the coconut milk to lower some calories/fat, but still tasted excellent.
