  • 1 lb. Pork Loin
  • 3 tbsp. Jerk Seasoning

  • 2 tsp. Complete Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • ½ cup Peanut Oil
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper

Sweet and Sour Sauce

  • 1 medium Red Bell Pepper, cubed
  • ¾ cup Onion
  • 1 medium Green Bell Pepper, cubed
  • ¼ cup White Cane Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dried Thyme
  • ½ cup Sweet Chilli Sauce

Let's Prepare and cook Pork Loin

  • Season pork loin with jerk seasoning, complete seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  • Each pork piece should be cut into ½ to 1-inch strips. Marinate in a bowl in the refrigerator overnight.

  • Remove the pork from the refrigerator and set it aside to come to room temperature before frying.
    Coat each pork strip with cornstarch. This allows the pork to crisp up and helps thickens the sweet and sour sauce.
  • Heat the peanut oil in a cast iron skillet for 3 minutes. Place each coated pork strip in hot oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  • Remove fried pork from hot oil and place on paper towels to drain excess oil using a tong. Set aside and proceed to the next step in the sweet and sour sauce preparation.

  • Remove some of the remaining oil from the pot where the pork loin was fried. Add the onion, cubed sweet pepper, and garlic. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Combine the ketchup, sweet chili sauce, vinegar, water, thyme, and honey in a small mixing bowl.
    Pour sweet and sour sauce onto the sweet pepper mixture and mix well together.
  • Add the fried pork loin strips to the sweet and sour sauce mixture. Combine together and allow to simmer for 5 minutes on medium heat

Mashed Potato

  • You can serve the sweet and sour jerk pork with any side dish you want. However, it went well with my delicious and simple garlic herb mashed potatoes.
    I used the gold potatoes, but any potato may be used.
    gold potatoes
  • Cube the potato, skin on, and cook in salted water until tender. Frozen Sweet Peas and Carrots should be cooked in water until soft.
    Drain the potatoes. Mash in the Land O'Lake Garlic Herb Butter with a whisk or a food masher. Add the carrot and peas and combine with a spoon.
