This recipe is one of the best grilled jerk tenderloin recipes served with its own Pineapple Mango-Kiwi Salsa. The flavors of the two balance the heat of the spicy seasoning and the sweet of the Pineapple Salsa. Recipe courtesy of the Queen Bs ZWT3 (Won 1st place in a Jerk Contest) :)

We loved this recipe. Like another reviewer, I used a crock pot because I had pork shoulder, but I had great luck with it. I made the rub 24 hours ahead of cooking, and the salsa as well. I didn't have a food processor last time I made this and it took me forever, but I am really slow at chopping.

To convert to pulled pork, I accordingly multiplied the rub ingredients per weight, then added a little extra. I also added a lot of extra juice and even a cup or so of ginger ale. I had no problems with this burning. I'll be making 11 lbs of pork in the crock pot this way for a party on Saturday. I am very excited to have a food processor this time around.

I made half a recipe, chilled for 5 hours then cooked inside as it is very cold here. Wonderful flavors that meld together. DH loved this one and look forward to doing it on the grill next time.

We loved this recipe, especially the salsa. Without the salsa, the pork would have been dry. I think I would make the salsa to serve over many other meats. It would be great with chicken.
