Jerk Pork Loin

WebMD Recipe from

Jerk Pork Loin

“Jerk” isn’t Jamaican for “as hot as you can stand it.” Instead, a jerk paste should be a carefully blended, aromatic melange, as much nose tickle as tongue spike. Here we use that flavorful paste on grilled pork loin. Watch out for that hot chile pepper: wear rubber gloves to protect your skin and touch no one until you’ve washed up thoroughly. If you have time, marinate the pork the full 24 hours for the best flavor.


  • 2 cups sliced scallions
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, or canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 center-cut pork loin, trimmed (3 pounds)
  • 1 scotch bonnet, or habanero pepper, quartered and seeded


Step 1
Puree scallions, garlic, chile pepper, vinegar, brown sugar, oil, allspice, coriander, thyme, salt, cinnamon and pepper in a food processor.
Step 2
Pour the spice mixture into a large, sealable plastic bag. Add pork and turn the bag to coat the pork with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
Step 3
About 20 minutes before you are ready to grill, preheat a gas grill (with all burners lit) to 500°F or build a fire in a charcoal grill and let it burn down to high heat (about 500°F).
Step 4
If using a gas grill, turn off one burner (leaving 1 to 2 burners lit, depending on your grill). If using a charcoal grill, move the coals to one side. Remove the pork from the marinade (discard marinade). Place the pork on the unheated side of the grill rack. Close the lid and roast undisturbed for 45 minutes.
Step 5
Rotate the pork 180 degrees, cover and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 145°F, 20 to 30 minutes more. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
