Excellent!! I just wish I had started sooner and/or had more patience because the peas were a bit, ummm....el dente. But a VERY tasty dish nonetheless. I am very bad at following directions & I cooked the peas in water until almost soft w/the ham hock, onion & jalapeno while I cooked the rice in the rice cooker. At the end, I added the rice, coconut milk, garlic, s & p. Cooked for a few minutes & served it up. YUM! Made for the Kitchen Witches ZWT5! :)
This turned out great. After reading Elmo's review I started very early this morning with soaking the peas and cooking the lg frozen ham hock. I'm glad that I picked up coconut milk when shopping for this round of ZWT 9. This is really hot (for me..I might not try Scorch Bonnet, lol again) but so good! I just followed the recipe and got a dish that seems very authentic.
