Although I loved Dominican Republic, I couldn't wait to get back home and eat some good homemade food. I've always loved Jamaican beef patties ever since I was a kid. My mom would buy them from our neighborhood grocery store.
(I used kidney beans) This Jamaican Rice and Peas recipe is an authentic recipe for a popular side dish to most Jamaican dinner recipes. This traditional recipe uses fragrant thyme and coconut for a rice that is full of flavour!
