Jerk is a style of cooking from Jamaica in which pork or chicken is marinated with a mixture of herbs and spices. For this lightning-fast recipe we rely on store-bought jerk seasoning to pull this dish together in a flash. There are many different types of premade jerk seasoning, so we recommend reading the ingredient list closely and tasting it before proceeding with the recipe. Many jerk spice blends will already have salt or sugar, so you should omit the salt or sugar from this recipe if that is the case. Additionally, you may want to increase the level of heat with a dash of cayenne if you find your jerk is a little too mild. Remember, this dish is meant to be hot!
Note:This recipe requires Suvie 2.0 and the Suvie Starch Cooker. To prepare this dish in Suvie 1.0, set the rice to cook for 15 minutes in Step 3. Follow remaining instructions as directed.
