How to Jerk at Home

Pork, chicken & beef can be marinated overnight, just add enough marinade for the protein to be fully covered and store in the refrigerator to pan sear, roast or grill the following day. Your jerk marinade is quite concentrated, so adding stock or water to extend is acceptable. Keep your pan juices to make tasty gravy.

If you are jerking seafood or tofu, you will only want to marinate for a few hours before cooking. Tuna is the only fish that can handle prolonged marinating.

When grilling marinated products, remove excess marinade from the product before placing on the grill. For unmarinated products, simply brush the jerk on straight from the bottle when the product is close to done
