Happy Friday or Thursday Evening if you are surfing tonight, and I thought I might share something a little crazy and wild for this time of year. I know its the Christmas season and we all have thoughts of turkey in our head but how about a fun jerk dish instead. I was fortunate enough to receive a fun package from Grace Foods that included a bottle of Jerk Marinade, BBQ Sauce and some Coconut water ( and a cute apron)and we decided to experiment a bit. Honestly we will be enjoying turkey and all the sides but leading up to the big day we like to broaden our horizons. And maybe think back to warm Caribbean vacations of the past Testing out a Slow Cooker Jerk Pork Roast which is great for New Years Eve possibly.
Grace Jerk Marinade
Forget Jerk Chicken let’s try a little pork. Better yet let’s use the slow cooker and go totally old school. Plus based on the slow cooker I am using it really is still old school ( I think i received this as a gift in the late 80’s but it still works great). Enough about my vintage appliances, lets talk Jerk for a second. Kent got a Pork Roast and figured it might be rather tasty if we tossed it in the slow cooker, with the Grace Jerk Marinade.
Slow Cooker Pork Roast
It is easy and fast, all in one jerk. Simply mix into your raw meat, marinate for at least one hour and you’re ready to cook. Perfect in an oven, on the grill or stove top. Add the Roast and cover with the marinade, cover to crock pot and then simmer on low all day. Totally delicious.

Look at that colour! After about six hours Kent removed the pork, sliced and then added a dollop of Jerk BBQ Sauce. It is recommended as a bbq sauce. Brush both sides of the meat with this sweeter jerk sauce during the last 5-6 minutes of cooking. It can also be added to casseroles, stews or stir fry dishes. We looked at the sauce more as a additional condiment, try it you will love it I promise.
My recommendation: Heat up the BBQ Sauce slightly use as an additional sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli and enjoy.
