BBQ Jerk Pork chops with Green & Red Fresh Chili Garnish

“Jerk” Pork Chops

The last time we barbecued these pork chops we both agreed; they are very good, quick and easy to put together and we are making them again tonight!

Mix up some Jamaican drinks, kick back and dream of those island breezes! You can easily increase the recipe too.

Makes 2 Servings

(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 and mash onion to a coarse paste with garlic, thyme, sugar, salt and spices with the flat side of a chef’s knife, place in a small bowl, stir in the oil. Pat pork chops dry and 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.
