Jamaican Jerk Pork Marinade.
Add all jerk marinade ingredients to a food processor or blender. Pulse until pureed (keep some texture, not too smooth) and set aside.
Marinate the Pork. Rub the jerk marinade all over the pork, until fully coated on all sides. Then, cover and marinate overnight or for 12 to 24 hours for best results.
Bake. Remove from fridge and allow to rest on counter for at least 20 minutes to take the chill off. If using a casserole or dutch oven with a lid, cover and bake in preheated oven at 350°F (177°C) for 1 1/2 to 2hrs or until meat is tender.
Slice and Broil Jerk Pork
When meat tender, remove from oven, rest on a cutting board and slice into smaller chunks, then transfer to a shallow baking sheet.
Place meat under the oven broiler setting “high” for about 5 minutes or until skin caramelized.
