"I made these last night for guests and they were a big hit. Spicy and very tasty. Because pork tends to dry out on a grill, the compound butter is a good addition. I used soft margarine and melted it in the microwave so it could be spooned over the chops more easily. Oh, and use a food processor to make the jerk paste, it takes 2 minutes."

Preparation

Prepare the grill or heat grill pan. Mince and mash onion to a coarse paste with thyme, sugar, salt, and spices. Reserve two tablespoons of the paste. In a medium bowl, stir softened butter with a spoon. Gradually stir in the reserved jerk paste, 1 teaspoon at a time until desired flavor is achieved. This can be stored in an airtight container or rolled into a log and wrapped in wax paper and placed in the refrigerator. Pat pork chops dry and rub all over with jerk paste. Grill pork on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 4 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Or, if using a grill pan, grill over moderately-high heat. Serve immediately with a pat of flavored butter on top. This recipe yields 2 servings.

It was so divine and I used boneless thick chops. I actually just added cinnamon and brown sugar to commercial jerk seasoning to keep it easy. The compound butter is what made it exceptional. What a special treat on a chilly night.

Great jerk flavor quick without long marinating times. I reduced the butter to 1 tbs and still had great results.
