Recipe by jmelyn

I really should use my crock pot more often. I mean, you get tasty results (such as this) with a minimum of work. My kind of kitchen appliance.

I was careful to measure all the ingredents correctly and found the end result OK if not outstanding. The spice from the pepper flakes was just right and I liked the allspice in the dish. It was just missing some body in the spices. I think maybe adding a bunch of onion and a few cloves of garlic might do the trick. Also I noticed that it doesn't call for much liquid and I didn't bother to thicken it. Just mentioning that it isn't really a "stew" but more of an entree to pour over rice.
