Jamaican Jerk Turkey tenderloins or chops

You can use the above spice or make your own as seen below.

Unfortunately I don't recall where I found this recipe, but it was delicious. I will post a picture the next time I cook it.

1 lb turkey tenderloins or chops
1 20 ounce can pineapple slices or chunks with juice
3 Tab. honey
1 Tab. oil
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tab. Jamaican jerk (recipe below)
2 Tab soy sauce
1 Tab lemon juice
1 Tab. minced dried onion
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in plastic zip lock bag or container. Shake well to coat meat. Refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour before grilling.

Remove turkey from the bag. Pour marinate into pan and heat over medium heat.

Grill turkey 4 minutes each side until no longer pink inside. Place pineapple (from marinade) on top and a little of the hot marinade.

You can purchase already made Jamaican Jerk seasoning or make your own. Here are 2 different recipes:

2 Tab. minced onion
2 1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp ground allspice
2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix these spices and use the amount called for in the recipe.( you can add this to
2 Tab veg oil if rubbing it on meat) .

Second seasoning recipe for Jamaican Jerk seasoning---(I did not use this one)

2 Tab. onion power
1 Tab. sugar
1 Tab salt
1 Tab ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Yes, I believe I have used store purchased Jerk Seasoning. I have not made this in ages--so I don't recall how it tastes with the store bought brand. If you like the taste of the seasoning itself then it should be fine.

I loved the combination of flavors that the rest of the ingredients added to the dish. I suppose you might experiment and do 1/2 with and 1/2 without the added ingredients.
