Let the flavors of Jamaica—the warm spices, hot pepper and touch of sugary sweetness—mingle all day in your slow cooker with this simple pork roast recipe. It’s delicious, mon!

Ingredients

2
tablespoons vegetable oil
3
1/2-pound pork boneless loin roast, trimmed of fat
1
teaspoon salt
1
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1
small red jalapeño chili, seeded and finely chopped
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2
teaspoon ground allspice
2
teaspoons cider vinegar
2
teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt.
  • 2 Place pork in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients except thyme in medium bowl; spread mixture over pork.
  • 3 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours. Sprinkle thyme over pork.
Tips  

The flesh, ribs and seeds of jalapeño chilies contain irritating, burning oils. So be sure to wear plastic or rubber gloves when chopping them, and be careful not to rub your face or eyes.

For a traditional Caribbean supper, serve with red beans and rice or a flavored couscous.

Pork is often injected with a saline solution to make it more tender and juicy. Read the label, and if your roast has been injected with the solution, leave out the salt in this recipe.
