Jerk Pork Cubes with Rice and Beans

 As as the title reads, this was jerk marinated pork butt, seared in a hot pan and served with coconut rice and beans! I made my favourite creamy cilantro lime sauce and enjoyed a salad on the side. The whole dish is similar to my Carribean Inspired Pork Chops, which I posted about in May. I've made this numerous times now and can't get enough! The flavours are sooooooo good; it's like a party in my mouth.

 I don't follow a recipe anymore (do I ever?). Everything is done approximately. If the marinade tastes good before it gets added to the meat, then it's good to go! Just cook the cubes of pork in a large pan on medium high, with a little bit of oil. Brown all sides and make sure it's cooked in the middle before serving and voila!

 Rice and beans couldn't be easier. I make mine in a rice cooker and it's just a matter of dumping all the ingredients in the pot. 
For every one cup of (thoroughly washed) rice add...
  • Half a can of full fat coconut milk (stirred to combine the cream and water)
  • 2 tsp chicken boullion
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp  granulated onion
  • A pinch each of salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme leaves 
  • and a can of black or kidney beans (I use what I have)
**It takes 1.5 cups of water to cook 1 cup of rice according to the instructions on my bag. Keep in mind that the recipe already includes 1/2 cup of coconut milk, so adjust the liquids accordingly. I usually add another generous cup of water in addition to the coconut milk.**

If you see another post about jerk pork/chicken/beef/lamb etc.. you know why.
Best marinade ever!
