If you liked this recipe, you must not know jerk. I came across it when looking for a different condiment for jerk pork. Although the chutney was pretty good at cutting through the spiciness of my pork, I can only give the recipe two stars because the recipe forgot the most important step when making jerk, marinating. Just by reading it, I knew that the pork would not be well seasoned. I used my own jerk recipe, but it takes a little time. Marinate the meat overnight in plain yogurt and lime juice. The next morning, wipe off the yogurt and rub the meat with jerk seasoning. I use Walkerswood Jerk Paste. If you don't like things insanely spicy, use the mild. A couple of tablespoons max! If you go overboard, you will regret it. Marinate the meat for at least 2 hours (I go 4-6). Sear and bake as instructed above (or if you are using chicken or pork shoulder, smoke for several hours). Serve with rice and peas or white rice and vegetables.
Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Pineapple Chutney
For more heat and spice flavor, use up to one tablespoon Easy Jerk Seasoning. The chutney is also delicious over chicken and fish. Use leftover pineapple in a colorful fruit salad with grapes, tangerine segments, and Asian pear slices. Sprinkle the versatile seasoning over meat, chicken, or seafood, and grill, bake, or broil. It is even tasty over popcorn. Store in a jar or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.
