Recipe Ingredients for Jamaican Jerk Pork

3 lb. of boneless pork chops
6 jalapeno peppers
2 tbsp. thyme
2 tbsp. ground allspice
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
3 medium onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 cup orange juice
1 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger

Recipe Directions for Jamaican Jerk Pork

  1. Chop the onions, garlic and peppers. These do not need to be chopped too fine as they will be liquidized by the blender.

  2. Making the marinade: Blend all of the ingredients (excluding the pork) in a blender to make the jerk sauce.

  3. Preparing the pork: Cut the jerk up in to smaller pieces. Use a fork to poke some holes in the pork pieces.

  4. Marinading the pork: Rub the sauce in to the meat, saving some for basting and dipping later.

  5. Leave the pork in the fridge to marinade overnight

  6. Cooking the pork: Grill the meat slowly until cooked, turning regularly. Baste with some of the remaining marinade whilst cooking. For best results, cook over a charcoal barbeque (ideally over a rack of pimento wood).

  7. Serve with festival, salad and the jerk sauce left over for dipping.
