Fast Food:Jerk Pork and Roast Butternut Squash

This is not really a recipe as such. But as dinners go, it was pretty great. Who am I to deny you great dinners?

  • 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.
