You will need the following ingredients to prepare enough jerk pork for 6 people:-
Jerk Pork


3 lb. of boneless pork loin cut into triangle pieces
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


Chopping the onion, garlic and peppers Chop the onions, garlic and peppers. These do not need to be chopped too fine as they will be liquidised by the blender.
Blend all of the ingredients (excluding the pork) in a blender to make the jerk sauce.
Cut the pork up in to smaller pieces and use a fork to poke some holes in the pork pieces.
Coat the pork in the jerk marinade.
Rub the sauce in to the meat, saving some for basting and dipping later.
Leave the pork in the fridge to marinade 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 barbeque (ideally over a rack of pimento wood).
