"I feel that the apple cider makes this Jerk marinade unique, and a bit untraditional. Being from the apple country of Virginia the apple cider was a natural. For added flavor, add apple or hickory wood chips soaked in water on top of the hot coals. You can begin grilling when the chips start smoking. Grilled pineapple goes well with this as a side dish." — VAGRILL

I was surprised how easy it was to prep and my family was astonished I made it. My husband said it's better than our fav restuarant dish.
This was a good recipe, but it was spicy enough.
This recipe ROCKS! The pork was tender and so flavorful. Will be my summer go-to for company. Made exactly as written with the exception of the habanero, I used some cayene and a couple of shakes of Tabasco. Thanks for a great recipe, VAGRILL.
This had great flavor, but I thought it would have been a little spicier. I am definately going to continue experimenting with it though, because it has a lot of potential.
Really tasty, though I reduced the amount of habanero due to preference. I served it with jamaican peas and rice.
I followed the ingredients list except for the green onions because I didn't have any and I let the meat marinade for about 3 hours. I cooked it on my grill pan instead of on the grill. This was very very good. Incredible flavorful. This one is company worthy.
Add cayanne pepper,cumin, chili powder and fresh cilantro and this is a great recipe......
This was delicious! The only thing I did different was to omit the habeneros... I know jerk is supposed to be spicy but I didn't have any peppers on hand AND my hubby is a total spicy whimp, so I decided to just go for the flavor without the spice. The meat was SO tender and flavorful and it was perfectly cooked after grilling for 6 minutes on each side. It was just two of us and we polished off the whole tenderloin!
