Jamaican Cuisine - Recipe Of The Month

Jerk Pork Ribs

Jamaican created delicious and spicy jerk seasoning which we use on chicken and also on pork. For this month I am showing you how to make jerk pork ribs with some added home seasonings.

So let's get started on this delicious cuisine.



3 Racks of pork ribs
2 tablespoons of brown sugar2 tablespoon sweet paprika
1 chopped onion2 teaspoon ground fennel
3 sprigs thyme3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoon Cumin1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoon jerk seasoning, I like walkerswood brand
1/4 cup sherry vinegar2 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoon ground coriander1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns


In a medium pot combine 3 cups of water, salt, vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, jerk seasoning, thyme and garlic and bring to a boil stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat, then when mixture has cooled add racks of pork ribs and cover. Chill for at least three hours. I usually prepare this overnight and let pork marinate in mixture overnight.

Preheat your grill to medium to high heat. Remove pork from marinade and pat dry. In another bowl combine mustard, coriander, cumin, fennel, pepper and paprika and rub over meat coating the pork.

Grill pork until browned on all sides, for approximately twenty minutes on each side. Remove from grill and let stand for ten minutes then cut into slices and serve.

Serve with roast corn, salad, rice or bread.

Really juicy and delicious.
