    All I can say is delicious.

    Very good! Will probably increase flavour intensity next time. Enjoyed by all!

    This is very good. Will make it again. It goes great with Jamaican oxtail stew. I use beef stew meat for that. 1/2 cup of dry beans cooked = to 1 can.

    Delicious! Not big on flavor. Definitely a must in the future with a few twists of my own.

    It was ok. I was looking for a different flavor though I probably won’t make it again, at least not this way. It’s missing some things, I believe.

    Just mde it and was ok- i found it very thyme'y and i only put 1 tsp instead of the 2. I willmake this again but with no thyme and different other spices.

    Turned out just like the recipe said. It was very good. I paired it with fried plantain. Next time I'd add a bit more spice to it
