“This is a compilation of several recipes for "Jerk Pork" that I've tried. I don't claim that it has any Jamaican authenticity at all, but we really like it. It's important to find a pork loin (not the tenderloin) that has a nice fat layer on top... it really keeps the moisture in and makes for a very nice presentation when it's browned and crisp. I made this for my mother's friend birthday party, for a crew of very discriminating palates and they went nuts. Prior to that, I didn't have a written recipe for this, but I had demands for the recipe so I had to measure as I re-created it! I hope you enjoy.”
