Jerk in the Garden

Jerk? Not what you think, or maybe it is. I have a Jerk Pork Rub recipe today. One of the things I've learned, and not really by experimenting but because I have to prepare everything before work, is to let things sit in the fridge after mixing whether it's a rub or a marinate. It brings out the flavors more.

Jerk Pork Rub
2 Boneless pork chops (or more depending on how many you need)
Grind the following together:
1/2 tsp. Ground Allspice
1/4 tsp. Ground clove (maybe a bit less, this is really strong)
1/2 tsp. Ginger
1/2 Tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp Crushed chili
Once in a find powder stir in:
1/4 cup chopped/minced onions
1 minced clove and then rub into the chops until coated generously. Let chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, then broil.

Suggestion: Serve with seasoned white rice and a vegetable--yes that is buttered Brussels sprouts you see. Very good!

I'm having such a good time playing in the kitchen I forget I really need to write or edit when I'm not working. What are your favorite hobbies?

Everything looked and sounds great-until the veggies. Those things should be outlawed.

LOL, I had to come see what veggies, since I'd forgotten. What's wrong with Brussels Sprouts?

You mean besides the fact they are gross, disgusting and horrible tasting. Everything.
