I made half the recipe for me and my husband, but used the full amount of spices. It would have been bland otherwise, I think. I also added a good shake of crushed red pepper. The sauce is very delicious, and plan to have a vegetable that you can mix in or serve right along side (we had okra which I sliced thin and quickly stir-fried). I agree that portion size is too small as given.

This was sooo good! The meat was so flavorful and tender. Instead of simmering on the stove for 2 hours, I just put it in the crock pot and walked away until I was ready to eat.

I can't say enough about how yummy this recipe is...just about to make it again for my husband's birthday dinner! I put extra lemon and toast coconut to put on top of it. The perfect blend of crunchy with perfectly cooked meat.

Comforting and delicious. I left out the fennel because I had none. Next time I will use lemon zest instead of strips of peel. The peel I think made it slightly biter. Otherwise, this was really good.

I made this for the first time the other night and it was very well-received by my family! As with a number of the CL recipes I make, I nearly doubled all the spices and the final result was perfect for our tastes/preferences. We enjoy a variety of flavors and this was a nice change from some of our more mundane week-night options. Will look forward to making it again.
