Grilled Jamaican Jerked Pork Loin Chops

Grilled Jamaican Jerked Pork Loin Chops

Ryan Nomura 37

"I like to buy a whole pork loin then cut them into chops so that I can get the thickness just right. You can also use the marinade with pork tenderloin, baby back ribs, and chicken."

  1. Pour the beer, rum, molasses, soy sauce, and lime juice into a bowl. Stir in the garlic, ginger, scotch bonnet pepper, thyme, and marjoram. Season with allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and bay leaves. Place the pork chops into a zip top bag, and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Prepare an outdoor grill for medium heat. Take the pork chops out of the marinade, place on a plate, and allow to sit at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes as the grill heats.
  3. Season the chops to taste with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Grill the chops on both sides until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Allow the pork chops to rest for about 5 minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.

Thank you for such a versitile and very delicious recipe! I had two large butterfly pork chops, so I halved all of the liquid and only used a couple of shots of beer (thanks previous reviewers)...

This came out really nice. I can't imagine the problems that the other reviews had unless they did not follow the recipe.

Made this recipe for the Labor Day BBQ. Everyone loved it! Next time, I'll try it on chicken.

FABULOUS! I love the infusion of flavors that brought this dish together. As mixing, I was skeptical! Once I poured over the chops, the aroma, I knew it was going to be delightful. I cut down ...

Great marinade! Everybody in my family enjoyed this recipe. I didn`t use molasses for marinade. If you don`t have a grill, fry the meat on a pan and you`ll get wonderful chops.

If you find the alocohol taste overpowering, marinate for MUCH less time, I make my own version, and only marinate for no more than a couple of hours

smelled awesome when grilling but the taste was weird. Followed recipe exact. Real different. Probably wont make again.

Made this on Friday night for a family dinner. Very, very good! The lime was not overpowering at all and yeah, you couldn't really taste the beer or rum but I don't think the point of the recipe...

I did half the recipe for four loin chops and it was the perfect amount. We used our favorite Yuengling Lager in the marinade. I was concerned when one review said the alcohol was over powering,...
