I made this because I wanted something different and healthy in the slow cooker, and I was pleased. I did change the recipe based off of my available ingredients. I used
1tsp onion powder in lieu of onions (Im pregnant and the scent of onions makes me sick and I cant eat anything with onions),
1 tablspoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tblespoon BBQ rub (didnt have jamacian jerk-could have used 1.5-2tbsp)
1/2 tsp curry (its island-y) since I was worried about the lack of flavor from the other reviews
and skipped the raisins and tyme as I didn't have any.
Overall very good, different, and slightly sweet. NOT overly sweet but I did change the recipe. The curry wa a nice touch, could probably go to 1 teaspoon while still keeping the Jamacian flavor. It was a nice change to the average beef in the crock pot, and was healthy. I paired with steamed spinach and Tostones (delish!), and my husband scooped it up with pita bread. I would make this again, but feel comfortable playing with the recipe--although Im sure they would serve this over white rice in the islands, might be too plain.
