Jamaican Jerk Pork Filet Mignon

“A different way to prepare a pork loin. It was easy to prepare, and produced great results. I just made this one up as I went....If you really want to simplify it use a store bought Jamaican Jerk Spice mix.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make Jerk Seasoning, mix all spices together and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Remove fat cap and silver skin ( I used a filet knife).
  4. Cut loin across grain into 3/4" to 1" filet mignons.
  5. Wrap a slice of bacon around circumference of filets, secure with toothpick(s).
  6. Sprinkle and rub Jerk Seasoning on both sides of filets. Left over seasoning can be stored in an air tight container.
  7. Coat iron skillet (or other oven ready pan) with olive oil (spray on pan coating can be used instead) to high heat on stove.
  8. Fry both sides of the filets until well browned (about 2 minutes per side).
  9. Put browned filets and skillet into preheated oven.
  10. Bake 20 minutes or until internal temp of filet is 160°F.
  11. Remove from pan and let stand 5 minutes.
  12. Garnish with 1 Tbsp of fruit compote per serving.
