I was surprised that all those different spices came together so good. The spiciness of it didn't hit me until I was done eating. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
What a great recipe Deantine. A really authentic jerk recipe. My dh was over the moon with this hot and spicy treat. I used a huge scotch bonnet and was really glad that I did. I served this lovely pork two ways....one for me and one for dh. My pork slices were served on top of corn griddle cakes and drizzled with a sweet hot & spicy bbq sauce. Thanks for sharing a recipe that we will be having again.
The whole family raved over this, including the picky kids. The only substitution I made was to use 1/4 teaspoon cayenne for the scotch blue bonnets. It offered just enough kick for all. It's great leftover sandwiches & snacking cold from the fridge. Thanks a bunch for posting your recipe Deantini!
