If you want to add a Thai/Jamacian flavor, just add 1 can lite coconut milk and green curry paste (to taste). I also cooked this is my crock pot.

I loved it. Admittedly it is goat and that is not everyone's cup of tea but it is a really good dish if you don't mind the slightly unusual taste. I didn't add the potatoes or bell pepper. It was great with homemade gnocchi. The only problem is the peppercorns get stuck in the gnocchi. Next time they go into muslin bag!
