Fast Food:Jerk Pork and Roast Butternut Squash
January 18, 2010 Leave a comment
- 2 pork chops
- 2 heaped tsp out of a jar of jerk marinade (Dunns River, is the best, by some stretch)
- Small butternut squash, chopped into thick slices, seeds removed
- Olive oil
- Herbs and spices – in this case ginger and garlic but thyme, cumin, coriander, allspice would all do in this instance. Not altogether though.
- Slosh of olive oil
- Salt & pepper
Simples. As early as possible prior to cooking, rub the marinade into the pork chops. Then when ready to cook, preheat oven to gas 6 , toss your squash slices with oil. Crush the garlic flat with the blade of a heavy knife and cut the ginger into pound-coin sized rings. You don’t have to peel them, even. Cook for about 40-50 mins, turning half way through. In the meantime, grill you chop. Serve with a nice green veg.
