Jamaican Jerk Pork is usually the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of Jamaican cuisine. 

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 3 lb. of boneless pork loin
  • 6 sliced scotch bonnet peppers (jalapenos may be used if scotch bonnet peppers are unavailable)
  • 2 Tbsp. thyme
  • 2 Tbsp. ground allspice
  • 1 Bulb of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 Medium onions, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 2 Tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 to 2 Tsp of the following (to taste): ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger

Preparation:

  • Chop the onions, garlic, and peppers.
  • Place ingredients in the blender.
  • Blend all of the ingredients (excluding the pork) in a blender to make the jerk sauce.
  • Cut the pork up into smaller pieces.
  • Use a fork to poke some holes in the pork pieces.
  • Rub the sauce into the meat, saving some for basting and dipping later.
  • Leave the pork in the fridge to marinate overnight.
  • Grill the meat slowly until cooked, turning regularly.
  • Baste with some of the remaining marinade whilst cooking.

For best results, cook over a charcoal grill (ideally over a rack of pimento wood). Serve with rice and peas.
