I used a large dutch oven and it turned out great! My hubby's only complaint was that it needed more spice, so next time I'll add more curry powder. But he's from Jamaica and is used to his mummy's authentic cooking! :) Very tasty recipe though!

This is not exactly Jamaican as there is usually no coconut milk used with meats

This was really good; the only thing I did differently was to increase the amount of Curry Powder to 2 and a half tablespoons because i am a curry fanatic & I added some salt; I'm not a heavy salt person but this needed about a half teaspoon. Easy tasty dish. Thanks Dave!
