A most versatile meat, pork can go in many different directions on the grill.
The mustard glaze does double duty on the pork and potatoes. Jump-start the potatoes in the microwave before putting them
on the grill so they’ll be done at the same time as the pork. The taste and aroma of the potatoes, pork, rosemary, and hickory
blend together for an unforgettable meal.

Oregano gives this pork dish great flavor. Add a tossed green salad, and you’ve got a meal. Slice the remaining guava paste,

Tender, flavorful pork, complemented by the heat and grilled ingredients of the salsa, creates an outstanding combination.
When preparing the tenderloin, remove the silver skin, which is the thin, shiny membrane that runs along the surface of the
meat. Leaving the silver skin on can cause the tenderloin to toughen and lose shape during grilling. Stretching the membrane
with one hand so it’s tight, use your other hand to slip the tip of the knife underneath the silvery skin. Slowly slice back
and forth, angling the sharp edge of the blade up, rather than down, through the meat. Continue this process until all the
silver skin is removed, then discard.

The flavors of chopped green onion, minced garlic, and white hominy sautéed in butter create a delicious side dish for the
pork chops. Boneless loin pork chops are excellent for stuffing. Use a thin-bladed knife to cut a horizontal slit through
the thickest portion of the chop to form a pocket. Cut to, but not through, the other side of the chop. Get a head start by
assembling the stuffed pork chops the night before. Placing the prosciutto wrap in the pocket overnight will allow the flavors
to permeate throughout the pork chops. Sprinkle them with the fennel mixture just prior to grilling.

Pork tenderloin has a mild flavor and is best if enhanced with a spice rub, marinade, or flavorful sauce. The Jamaican jerk
marinade is a perfect fit for this selection of meat. Traditionally, jerk is a dry rub, but you can mix it with liquid to
form a paste or marinade as we’ve done with this recipe. Jerk seasoning is pungent―the longer the meat marinates the more
flavorful and spicy it becomes.

When basting with sugar-based mixtures like the jalapeño jelly used in this recipe, it’s important to apply it at just the
right time. Basting too early can ruin the flavor of great food. Rather than developing a crusty, sweet caramelized flavor,
the sugar burns and chars on the meat creating a bitter, unpalatable flavor.
