“Jerk” Pork Chops

The last time we barbecued the pork chops we both agreed; they are very, very good, quick and easy to put together and we are making them tonight! Mix up some Jamaican drinks, kick back and dream of those island breezes! You can easily increase the recipe too.

Makes 2 Servings

DSC_1133 nx2(2) ¾ – 1” thick pork chops
¼ cup chopped onion
½ small clove garlic
1 tsp. dried thyme, crumbled
1 tsp. Muscavado sugar, or other brown sugar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Fresh chili (use the type & amount you feel comfortable with), the rub should have some heat
½ tsp. ground allspice
1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 – 2 tsp. cooking oil

Prepare the barbecue.

Mince & mash onion to a coarse paste with garlic, thyme, sugar, salt & spices with the flat side of a chef’s knife, place in a small bowl, stir in the oil. Pat pork chops dry & rub the jerk paste all over them. Grill the chops 5 minutes on the first side, then 4 – 5 minutes on the second side, until cooked medium well.
