Canada Day Jerk ...Pork Loin with Coconut Lime Rice and Peas and Jerk Pineapple Bites

Well there has been a few Jerk post lately and we all know I love Jerk foods also. So here is another one from me.

And we all say that was the best cook we have ever done most times we mean it . I have to tell you I made this jerk marinate blended from 2 recipes I have looked at . AND this was a fantastic flavor, even if I say so myself.
Here is the start, I had a Pork loin Centre Cut in the freezer (1.875 kg or 4.13 lbs )

1 tea, Thyme 1 med onion chopped
1 Tea, allspice 3 gr. onions/scallions
1/2 Tea, Nutmeg 2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 Tea, cinnamon 1 Habanero chopped
1/2 Tea Ground black pepper 3/4 cup soya sauce and 2 Tablespoon oil

Put all in a blender , on Pulse, if faster it will just make it too frothy to use ( too much air in it )
Into a bag and in the fridge for 12 or so hours, turning when you think of it.

In a pan I cut up apples and onions as a base to keep the roast off the bottom of the pan. Place on the roast and pull all the marinate on top and spread around. Save 1 - 2 tablespoon for the Pineapple Bites

Into the smoker : temp 290 - 300 deg. with apple wood. It took approx. 3 hours . Pulled at It of 146 deg.

Now with the roast resting on a plate I put all the tray items into a pot with 1 cup Chicken stock and simmered , Removed all the big parts and tasted . I added not salt because of the soya sauce. And it was great .

Of coarse there must be dessert

pull all the Rhubarb out of garden today also.

So 2 cups went into a new to me recipe called Rhubarb Cake. ( I looked it up and found out it is a very old recipe, I just never had it )
It was great and will make again very soon. ( I made it in a loaf pan , they say in a 9 x 13 )

Very nice of you, it was a thing I have been wanting to do again , but with my own marinate this time
I think what came out was a winner . And going to make a batch of the marinate to have in the fridge for when needed .

I just had a jerk pork sandwich for breakfast ...lol
