    Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this dish, but I am pleasantly surprised. Mildly sweet and a nice meld of flavor's really make this a keeper recipe. I put this over a basmati rice. very easy to make and hard to stop eating it

    Super simple and quick. The flavors were good and the coconut adds a wonderful sweetness. I tried some with and without and there was a huge difference with it. Overall though it's lacking something I think, but a real Jamaican curry dish would be more complicated so I do like this as a simple easy dish. I used plantains instead of bananas which aren't as sweet. I think I might also try sweet potatoes next time.

    Great! Reminds me of a typical sweet and sour pork. We omitted the coconut all together.

    Very tasty . My husband said the only down side was it could have been hotter ( in warmth, not spice).

    The sauce itself was really good though the inside of the pork pieces were a bit bland. Could probably use some veggies to balance the dish, and I would definitely marinate the pork first to get it more juicy. I also replaced shredded coconut with coconut milk for anyone else who isn’t and a fan of the sauerkraut-like texture. Never had Jamaican pork before so I can’t speak to its authenticity but it’s a simple, filling dish.
