Jamaican Pork Roast Recipe

Updated on April 15, 2012

This is a recipe that I make in a crockpot. Actually I have used pork loin, or pork tenderloin. Despite the small amount of liquid in it, it still comes out delicious and tender. At our house, while I would prefer to serve it with some kind of rice and/or beans, my daughter insists on cinnamon applesauce.

Jamaican Pork Roast

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 ½ pound pork boneless loin roast, trimmed of fat

1 teaspoon salt

1 small onion chopped (about ¼ cup)

1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground allspice

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, optional

Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt.

Place pork in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients except thyme in medium bowl; spread mixture over pork.

Cover and cook on low heat setting seven to eight hours. Sprinkle thyme over pork. Makes 8 servings.
