Jerk Pork ChopsComplement these juicy, hot chops with green beans with bacon and onion, cornbread and sweet, fresh pineapple chunks sprinkled with shredded coconut.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops, about 1/2-inch thick

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine all seasonings and oil in a small bowl; mix to blend. Spread paste mixture on both sides of each pork chop. Place pork chops in a self-sealing plastic bag or baking dish and cover. Chill for several hours or overnight in refrigerator.
