A summer tropical idea…

Caribbean Jerk Pork

With the hot weather, it’s easy to bring a taste of the tropics home.  Here is a recipe that reminds me of being in a Caribbean vacation:

Caribbean “Jerk” spiced Grilled Pork Loin

Serves 6

Prep time: 10 minutes

Grill time: 15 minutes

Estimated Values per Serving:

Calories: 150                                       Fat: 3 grams                                        Points: 3


6 (5-ounce each) boneless flat iron pork loin steaks

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon allspice

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Wash and pat dry the pork loin steaks.  Combine all spices and rub steaks on both sides with seasoning.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Heat grill on high and add pork.  Grill 7 – 10 minutes on each side until cooked to medium (165o internal temperature).
  4. Remove steaks from grill, cover for 10 minutes and serve.

NOTE: If you cannot find flat iron pork steaks, you can cut a whole pork loin into 6 5-ounce steaks.
