We be Jammin...

I love anything Caribbean! The music ..the drinks..and the food!
This yummy pork roast will have you thinking you must be in Jamacia mon.

It is so easy ..you will have plenty of time for downing pina coladas on the patio while jammin to Bob Marley as this roast cooks on the barbecue.

Caribbean Pork Loin Roast.

In a large pan or large zip lock bag if roast is small enough combine.

* 1/4 cup lime juice
* 1/4 cup rum
* 1/2 cup orange juice
* 2 tbsp brown sugar
* 2tsp minced garlic
* 1/2 tsp hot sauce
* 1/2 tsp allspice
* 1/2 tsp thyme
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 1 tsp chili powder

Place roast in marinade (I used a 3 1/2 pound pork loin ...one or two pork tenderloins can be used too)
Let marinate in fridge for a least 3 hours or overnight.. You can cook this on the grill or oven .. Preheat grill or oven to 350F.
Remove roast from marinade and place in pan ( or on rotisserie with a shallow pan of water underneath ) .
Roast till internal temp reaches 165F.

Pour marinade in saucepan and bring to low boil for 2 or 3 min till slightly thickened.

Brush roast often with the marinade. .
If grilling in a pan you can place the roast directly on grill to brown up the last 20 min or so if not using the rotisserie.

Let stand for 10 min then slice and serve.

Jamaican Style Rice and Beans or Sweet Potatoes are great side dishes that would go well with this roast.

Wine Suggestion: Sangria or Gew├╝rztraminer.
