Jerk Pork, Turkey, or Tofu Skillet Dinner
Servings: 3
  • 1/2c dry quinoa or rice
  • 1-2 sweet potatoes, diced into 1cm cubes
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Chili powder
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lb pork loin, pork tenderloin, or turkey breast, or tofu, cut into large cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • 1 large can pineapple chunks or 1 cored pineapple cut into large cubes
  • Jerk marinade
  • 5oz baby spinach
  1. First, prepare the quinoa or rice. (Quinoa: boil 1/2 c quinoa, 3/4 c water, and 1/8 tsp salt for 12 minutes, covered. Remove from heat and let stand 5 mins.)
  2. Dice the sweet potatoes and boil for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a pan and add cubed meat. Brown the meat for 5-6 minutes until almost cooked, then add jerk marinade to taste. Cook until meat is done and sauce has reduced to a nice glaze. Remove meat from pan and set aside.
  4. Add the bell pepper, onion, and pineapple (with a couple tablespoons of pineapple juice) to the pan you cooked the meat in. Cook until crisp-tender. Add a little more jerk sauce to glaze.
  5. Return the meat to the pan and heat through.
  6. To assemble the bowls, put a couple handfuls of spinach in the bottom of the bowl. Add hot quinoa or rice - this will start to wilt the spinach. Top with the meat and vegetables.
  • Alternatively, you can pan fry all the ingredients together at the end instead of layering in a bowl.
