The Ultimate Jerk Pork Recipe.


jamaican jerk pork (8)

Today we’ll induct yet another dish into the series “The Ultimate” (keyword search ‘ultimate’ in the search box – top right of this page for more recipes in the series). This time we’re doing one of those classic Jamaican dishes… Jerk Pork. The first time I made this dish was about 5 years ago when our friends were getting married and they were having the stag / doe and asked for us to bring along a dish. Since then, we’ve only heard good things from the many guests who were there that night. This weekend being Tehya’s birthday and knowing that my mom is a fan of jerk pork, I thought it would be perfect for the bbq we were having.

If you read the piece I did titled  Jamaica One Plate At A Time, you’ll know that I went in hunt of the perfect jerk while we were in Jamaica and found (more like stumbled.. stretch our legs and use the bathroom) a spot called “Supreme Jerk Center”  on our way to Negril from Montego Bay. The fella doing the jerk had some skills. Not only was the pork perfectly cooked over the open coals, but we could tell that he allowed the meat to marinate for quite some time. As the pork was infused with that authentic jerk flavor and the smoky taste from the pimento wood was divine. Though I don’t have the use of the open coals, I’m positive that my jerk pork could easily rival his.

For this recipe you’ll need to refer to the jerk marinade recipe I shared with you a few months ago or see below for quick instructions. If you don’t feel like making your own marinade, check out the selection of Jamaican Jerk Marinade and BBQ Sauces you can purchase.

You’ll Need…

Jerk Marinade

5 scallions (green onions)
5 sprigs of fresh thyme (about 1 tablespoon chopped)
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 scotch bonnet peppers
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup vinegar
1 onion
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger

* Basically all you have to do is give everything a rough chop and place in a food processor or blender as I did and pulse until you get a smooth consistency.

Then you’ll need…

1 boneless pork loin (about 7-8lbs)
2 cups of the jerk marinade

Let’s get started. Give the pork loin a good rinse under cool water and pat dry with paper towels. Then place the pork in a large dish/pan and using a pairing knife, make some stabs into the meat (about 1 inch deep). This will help in the marinating process. This step will get a bit messy, so using gloves may come in handy. Remember we used scotch bonnet peppers in the marinade so you may find that your bare hands may catch on fire! Pour 1 cup of the jerk marinade over the pork loin, then using your hands, massage and work it well. You can certainly bush the marinade on, but I much prefer to work this with my hands. Now cover and leave to marinate for at least 5 hours in the fridge.

Take the pork out of the fridge about 25 minutes before you start to grill, to allow it to come back to room temperature. I’m using a gas grill to cook this but if you have a wood or coal burning grill, do your thing. Basically you want to bring the temperature of the grill to about 300 degrees and brush the grate with some vegetable oil. All you do is take tongs, grab a piece of paper towel and dip it into a bowl with vegetable oil an brush the grill.

The goal is to slow cook this so you have 2 options. Grill on the top level grill or sort of warming rack (as I did) or grill with indirect heat. The flame would be on one corner of the grill surface and the meat on the other. This way you don’t get direct contact with the meat and flame/heat.

Basically all you’re doing for the next 2.5 to 3 hours is basting every 20 minutes and turning over when you do, so the meat cook evenly. When you removed the pork loin from marinating, do save the left over marinade and add a further cup, to use for basting during the cooking process.

When I purchased my pork loin I looked for a piece with a thin layer of fat. This allows the meat to basically self-baste while cooking… so you don’t get an overly dry finished dish as the loin is usually very lean. Remember to try to maintain the 300 degrees, keep the lid on the grill closed and brush on marinade every 20 minutes or so. You will notice that it will start going dark and have a sort of burned look, but this natural. It’s just all the sugars doing it’s caramelizing thing. Good jerk is supposed to have that sort of colour… but remember – no direct heat or it will become burnt!

Do allow this to rest a bit before slicing, so some of the natural juices are allowed relax the jerked pork loin. We had over 25 people here and I still had enough to pack a doggie bag for my parents when they left. But we did have many others dishes as well. Conservatively, this is enough for about 10-15 people as a main meat side..

IMPORTANT: Be sure to use a gluten free soy sauce to meet with your gluten free dietary needs when doing this jerk pork recipe.

    Pimento wood is the best for smoking jerk, but it’s hard/expensive to find pimento wood here in the US. What kind of wood would you recommend to get as close as possible? Hickory? Pecan? I’ve tossed some dried allspice berries on the coals but that doesnt seem to do much

      I usually go with apple wood and wet allspice berries in my tin foil pouch.

    I have tried MANY jerk recipes, using chicken and pork, cooked several different ways and this is my absolute favorite. The marinade is well-balanced and the method was simple. The only variation I made was that I cooked it over indirect heat on a Weber grill and smoked with a little bit of pimento wood.

    Thanks!

    Chris you make it so simple for those of us that don't have a darn idea of what we are doing around the kitchen. The pictures and the simple way in which you explain the process is amazing. This is the first time I have been on your site and I am already loving it. I live in Edmonton Canada but was born in Guyana, I have done jerk pork many times before but with jerk out of a bottle. I will try this and let you know how it turned out. I like a few others on here love my bones so I always used the pork chops with the T-bone in what I am looking for also is Callaloo the way my Trini friends does it I die for this stuff but have no info on how to make it. Can you repost if you have this. Thanks for making things simple I just love it.

    Greetings from Australia. I've just put mine in the fridge to marinate. I'm cooking it tomorrow for fathers day at my parents house. By the look/smell thus far I'm thinking this is going to go down a treat. Love your recipes man. Peace.

  30. August 12, 2011 / 5:18 am

  31. Coconut Joe
    July 27, 2011 / 11:31 pm

    Looks like another good recipe to try. If you can't use pimento wood whole allspice is a good alternative. I've used it on a charcoal grill and a gas grill by soaking the berries overnight in water and then making little packets of them with aluminum foil leaving a vent at the top. When they heat up they give off a similar flavored smoke as the pimento wood. I've used a similar recipe on pork and chicken but your recipe has more ingredients and sounds much better.

    The only problem I have is that I've heard it's not a good idea to used leftover marinade as a baste but instead use fresh marinade that hasn't had raw meat in it. But I guess if you could it long enough it wouldn't be a problem.

    hey Chris…that pork looks super-fantastic, and i'm sure it tasted even better than it looked! i like the shortcut way though so i use Grace jerk seasoning and it has just the right amount of "sting". Maggi used to have the "bess" but they stopped producing it (beats me why!) but if i find the time, i'll definitely try this recipe, even if it's just to say "i made this from SCRATCH!"

    Chris. I have been going to the islands for a few yrs now and fell in love with the food instantly, especially anything Jerk. As an up and coming chef, I must say that I think Caribbean food may turn out to be my primary focus. Just recently found the site and am totally loving it!

  111. Maryann
    June 13, 2011 / 5:06 pm

    Thoroughly enjoying this website, thanks for the tips! I am from the Caribbean, but was never near the kitchen, (only to eat), so my cooking skills have been honed from memories of tastes and flavours. I normally don't use a recipe, it's nice to get a new twist on old favorites and an introduction to new flavors.

    I hope all is well. Thank you so very much for all of your easy-to-follow recipes. It all started with me looking for a decent Paratha Roti recipe and I stumbled upon your page. I can't believe how much I have learned from your videos about Caribbean cooking. I told myself that before I die, I'd like to get back to my Trinidadian roots and balay a roti. And now I can! Thank you

    Your recipe looks and sounds so easy. I’m going to print out this recipe and try it. Sadly, I don’t have a grill but will try it in the oven.

    On a different note, I found this useful trick on the internet the other day that I want to share.

    If you get hot pepper on your hands and they are burning you, wash them with rubbing alcohol and it takes away the burn. I tried it and it really worked (to my surprise!!)
