Cooking with an Empire's Child - Pork Jerk Finale

This evening, Nicholas put the Weber grill on, and cooked the Pork Jerk to perfection. It took about 15 minutes.

This recipe has its history in the slavery of the West Indies. In order to keep any rare source of meat from rotting in the heat of the Jamaican climate, the slaves used the spice mix to kill bacteria in the meat.

It also tastes amazing, and I expect the longer you marinade it, the better it gets. It was not too spicy. My children enjoyed it immensely, and my husband was impressed.

This recipe is definitely a keeper!

A beautiful picture! You captured the texture perfectly. Did you use a macro setting on your camera?

(Incidentally, pork and grilling!?! You will fit right into Indiana. Wait till you try the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich!)
