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! THANKS RICK!

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!
