Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Olive oil

    ol-iv oyl

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 3 tbsp Jamaican jerk sauce
  • 4 small boneless pork loin steak about 500g/1lb 2oz in total
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 50g creamed coconut (from a block)
  • 1 bunch salad onions
  • 2 x 250g packets Rizzazz pure basmati rice (ready cooked rice in a vacuum-pack)
  • 410g can red kidney beans, drained

Method

  1. Half fill the kettle and put on to boil.Warm the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a low heat while you tip the jerk sauce into a shallow dish and use to coat the pork steaks on both sides. Place them in the hot oil (reserve the sauce left in the bowl) and turn up the heat. Fry for 4 minutes on each side until cooked and richly glazed.

  2. While the pork is frying, pour 150ml/1⁄4 pint of boiling water into a medium pan over a high heat and crumble in the stock cube and creamed coconut. Trim and slice the spring onions, holding them together as a bunch so you can chop them all in one go. Add to the pan, give a quick stir, then tip in the rice and beans. Stir and heat gently, breaking down any clumps of rice with a spoon. If the rice looks a little dry, add an extra splash of water.

  3. Tip the remaining sauce into the pan to heat through with the pork. Pile the rice onto plates, top with the pork and spoon the pan juices over.

I used a delicious Creole paste and it was lovely. I cooked brown rice (couldn't bring myself to buy pre-cooked!) in good ham stock which made it very tasty, and served it with a green salad.

This is such a quick and easy tasty meal i couldnt believe it! dont over do on the kidney beans as they can take some of the flavour away from the rice and the sauce. I add extra jerk sauce as i used 5 pieces of pork and i thought plenty of sauce really complemented the rice

from the ground up recipes only please its the only way to learn.

This went down really well, I used an authentic jerk paste that a friend picked up for me which packed quite a kick! Instead of using ready cooked rice, I cooked basmati rice in vegetable stock and a small tin of coconut milk adding the kidney beans and spring onions at the end. Will definitely do again.

My whole family love this dish - very tasty with just a few simple ingredients. I usually cook my own rice in the rice cooker with the other rice ingredients added. Turns out beautifully. I used to use the Knorr Stir-it-up Jamaican Jerk pot of sauce and smear it over the pork chops before cooking, but they stopped making it. There are many jerk sauces available in supermarkets now and not all are fiery.

Just cooked this for a quick Sunday meal, really tasty the rice does a good job of cooling your mouth with the strong jerk sauce. Ours was the real stuff as our son brought it back from his honeymoon in Jamaica.Will definatley eat again.
