Equipment

  • small bowl
  • Ziploc Bag
  • Slow Cooker
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Medium Mixing Bowl

Ingredients

Pork

  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 3 Tablespoons Caribbean Jerk Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 pound pork loin roast
  • 1 lime juice is squeezed
  • ½ cup orange juice

Salsa

  • 3 Roma tomatoes diced
  • ½ cup fresh pineapple chopped
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ jalapeno pepper seeded and finally chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups cooked rice optional

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together crushed garlic, Caribbean Jerk seasoning, and salt. Rub mixture evenly on all sides of the roast.
  • In a resealable gallon-sized bag, pour in the juice of one lime and orange juice. Mix together, then add the roast to the bag and seal tightly.
  • Place the roast in the fridge for 5-8 hours (or overnight), turning occasionally so that the roast is evenly marinated.
  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and pour all the contents from the bag into the slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 8-9 hours.
  • Remove the roast and gently shred with two forks (the roast should easily fall apart).
  • Remove liquid from slow cooker and set aside. Place the shredded pork back into the slow cooker and add 1 cup of the liquid back into the slow cooker; mix with the pork.
  • Let pork cook for an additional 15-20 minutes on low heat.
  • Mix together all salsa ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 20-30 minutes to let flavors blend together.
  • Serve pork topped with salsa.
  • Serve over rice (optional).

Notes

  • Great served with rice or quinoa
