A favorite of mine. I grew up eating this and thinking that I should be as strong as Popeye :). If the allspice is too much for you, use half the quantity.

This isn't a review, just a warning to others who might try to modify this recipe. I attempted to replace the ground beef with Quorn Mince (a meat substitute). I think the Quorn didn't absorb the lemon juice as meat might have, meaning the whole dish was just like eating lemons. If you're going to try modifying it I advise you just add lemon juice to taste.
