How-To
The flesh, ribs and seeds of jalapeño chilies contain irritating, burning oils. So be sure to wear plastic or rubber gloves when chopping them, and be careful not to rub your face or eyes.
Serve With
For a traditional Caribbean supper, serve with red beans and rice or a flavored couscous.
Did You Know?
Pork is often injected with a saline solution to make it more tender and juicy. Read the label, and if your roast has been injected with the solution, leave out the salt in this recipe.
