What Is Jerk?

A jerk is a style of cooking that originated in Jamaican cuisine. Jerk refers to the seasoning or marinade used to flavor the meat. The most common type of jerk seasoning is made with allspice and scotch bonnet peppers. Jerk seasoning can be applied to chicken, pork, fish, and beef.

Ways To Use Jerk Sauce

There are many ways to enjoy jerk sauce. Here are some of our favorites:

As A Marinade For Grilled Chicken

To use as a marinade for chicken or pork, mix 1/2 cup of the sauce with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Place the chicken or pork in a zip-top bag and pour the marinade over top. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Grill your chicken or pork over medium-high heat until cooked through.

Brushed On Meat During Cooking

You can also brush the jerk sauce on your chicken or pork while it's cooking. This will give it a nice flavor and a little bit of sweetness. It's best to start with a little bit of the sauce and then add more if you want. The brushing will add a unique sweetness to the jerk chicken.

As A Dipping Sauce

Jerk sauce is also great as a dipping sauce. Serve it with grilled chicken strips or nuggets, or with pork chops. It's also good with veggies like carrot sticks or celery.

As A Topping For Burgers Or Sandwiches

If you're looking for something a little different, try using jerk sauce as a topping for burgers or sandwiches. It's especially good on pulled pork sandwiches.

As A Slaw Or Salad Dressing

Jerk sauce can also be used in a slaw or salad dressing. To make a dressing, mix 1/4 cup of the sauce with 1/4 cup of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. You can use any type of vinegar you like, but we prefer apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar. Pour the dressing over your favorite salad and enjoy!

As A Spicy Mayo Dip

To make a spicy dip, mix 1/2 cup of the sauce with 1/2 cup of mayo or sour cream. You can adjust the amount of hot pepper to your taste. Enjoy!
