Jamaican Jerk Pork Chops | Slow Cooker Meals

Hello again and Happy March!  It’s me, Claire popping over from A Little CLAIREification to bring you another easy slow cooker recipe that will hopefully help take your mind off of the crazy Winter weather for a bit.

Jamaican Jerk Pork ChopsThese Crock Pot Jamaican Jerk Pork Chops are packed with flavor and the meat just falls off the bone.  You could use boneless pork chops if you like, but bone-in chops are less expensive and the bone actually adds some flavor too.

Let me back up for a second and tell you that I originally envisioned a pork chop over a bed of rice with these great, colorful veggies & black beans.

This was not the case – the meat just falls apart and it was the about the happiest accident ever.  My Husband ate this like it was his last dying meal.  The spices came together so well and the red pepper flakes add the perfect amount of heat but it’s not “spicy hot”.

Each forkful is like a little bite of island inspired deliciousness and just may have you looking around for the white sand and a cabana boy fanning you with palm fronds.  This recipe needs it’s own Caribbean soundtrack.  I speak only the truth.

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that I seriously wish I could reach through the screen and just feed this to every one of you reading along.  I am thrilled with this recipe and we will absolutely be making it again – I hope you will give it a try too.

    This was amazing

  15. I’m going to make this today, but had a question about the recipe. It says to add the first 11 ingredients through to garlic. By my count, the garlic is only #9 on the list. Am I missing something?

    • You are so right, Cori. Should be “down through the first 9 ingredients”. This is why I cook and don’t do math. 😉 We’ll see if we can get that fixed. I hope you enjoy it!!

      • This recipe is a keeper! It is so super simple and yummy. Next time though I might use boneless pork chops. Since the meat is fall apart tender, it was a pain to hunt down all the small, sharp pieces of bone. But otherwise, this recipe is awesome.

  16. I don’t eat pork so I made this using 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs – DELICIOUS!!

  17. I’ve made this several times and it’s always a huge hit. It’s delicious with coconut rice and even some naan bread
