Ok I think the cornbeef must have been a misprint. OMIT the cornbeef and you've got yourself a very rich and yummy peas and rice! The browning sauce gives a darker colour,but if its hard to fin...

This is not real Bahamian peas and rice. No real Bahamian puts cornbeef in their peas and rice. if they did the food wouldn't cook properly and the meal itself wouldn't taste good at all.

We do not use corned beef I don't know where that came from It is called salt beef

This is ridiculous! I don't know anyone in the Bahamas who cooks Peas 'N Rice this way!

This isn't authentic. Though you can add the coconut milk (AKA: coconut water)or shredded, non sweet coconut, no Bahamian I know puts corned beef in their rice. Corned Beef is a separate dish...

This is the real thing.

I'm sorry to report this was terrible. I thought I liked anything with rice in it but this was bland, flat-tasting, and heavy.

No Bahamian I know use ham or corned beef - not sure where u got this recipe bit not from a 'true, true Bahamian! One star as rating is required MG
