Discovering Jerk - Making Jerk Pork at Home

I discovered Jerk this summer. We now keep a stock of Grace Jerk Marinade in our fridge at all times. We also use the Grace Jerk BBQ sauce as well. Try this recipe which is great for a family or even better when you have a big dinner to plan for. Lots of rice with kidney beans on the side goes wonderfully! It's really easy because of the minimal prep. The secret here is to let it marinade for a good 24 hours before slow cooking until the meat falls apart.

Mix marinade with brewed tea 3:1 and cover a pork tenderloin or assortment of chicken and put in the fridge for 24 hours.

Put meat and all the marinade in a roasting pan and cook at 250 for a few hours. Turn up to 350 for the last half hour. It's wonderful! My husband likes me to boil the juices and add a bit more tea for a sauce. Sometimes I thicken it with flour and butter. You can also put some vegetables in the roaster for jerk veggies. Yum!

I've started experimenting with jerk seasoning in other cooking as well. I've spoken with many friends who love Caribbean cooking and all agree that Grace is the best. They have an assortment of other products to go along with the meal as well.

I'm slow cooking jerk pork today. Smells so good in here! They should make a Glade Jerk Pork scented plug-in.
