This is not real Bahamian peas and rice. No real Bahamian puts cornbeef in their peas and rice. if they did the food wouldn't cook properly and the meal itself wouldn't taste good at all.

Ok I think the cornbeef must have been a misprint. OMIT the cornbeef and you've got yourself a very rich and yummy peas and rice! The browning sauce gives a darker colour,but if its hard to find just get a really thick tomatoe paste eg.Hunts.I don't like my peas and rice too dark.Its prettier when its rosy brown and you can actually see the peas,bacon,thymme etc.
