FAQ and Cooking Tips

What is Jamaican jerk pork?

Jamaican jerk pork is a traditional Caribbean dish made from pork marinated in a spicy and aromatic mixture of allspice, Scotch bonnet peppers, thyme, garlic, and other seasonings, then grilled or slow-cooked to perfection. The unique blend of spices gives it a distinctively smoky, spicy, and slightly sweet flavor.

What is the best cut of pork for jerk pork?

The best cut of pork for jerk pork is the pork shoulder or Boston butt, as it remains tender and juicy when grilled or slow-cooked, absorbing the flavors of the jerk marinade effectively.

How to reheat jerk pork

To reheat jerk pork, place it in a preheated oven at 325°F (165°C) in an oven-safe dish, covered with foil, for 10-15 minutes or until warmed through. Alternatively, use a microwave or stovetop, adding a small amount of broth or water to prevent drying out.

How To Cook Jamaican Jerk Pork Roast on The Stove

You can adapt my Jerk Pork Instant Pot recipe above for stovetop cooking, here’s how:

  1. Marinate the Pork: Follow the recipe’s instructions for marinating the pork with the jerk seasoning.
  2. Brown the Pork: In a large pot, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork roast and sear each side until browned.
  3. Cook the Pork: After browning, reduce the heat to low. Add the chicken broth to the pot. Cover and let it simmer on very low heat for 2-3 hours, or until the pork is tender and fully cooked. Check occasionally and add more broth or water if needed to prevent drying out.
  4. Rest and Serve: Once cooked, remove the pork from the pot and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice or shred the pork, and serve with your preferred side dishes.

Note: Cooking times may vary based on the size and thickness of the pork roast. Adjust accordingly and ensure the pork is cooked through before serving.
