Butterflying the pork helps it cook faster. If you can't find papaya, use an extra cup of chopped pineapple.

Ok. I changed it a bit. Used mango instead of papaya since I already had one, but this was a quick easy recipe and very tasty!! Everyone at my little dinner party wanted the recipe. My husband threw in some jerk seasoning to give it a little zing to counter the sweet. I put the ingredients for the sauce/dressing in a blender instead of a food processor. I would do this again and highly recommend it.
