    ^ yeah... I know you'd prefer a 'big burrrrrito'.

    I'm not sure if you can 'Jerk' tofu.
    The meat is ever so slightly burnt and that makes the cripsy texture.
    I dont know if you can burn tofu. Well I'm sure I could do it... but it wouldn't be edible.



    Jerk:

    Jerk cuisine, like most cuisines throughout the Caribbean is a mixture of native cooking and foreign influences such as Asian, African, European and East Indian. The process of cooking food slowly in pits was brought to the islands by the African slaves. In the 1600's the Maroons (runaway slaves) coated meat with spice mixtures and cooked it in a pit as a way of preserving it.

    Jerk mixtures can be either wet pastes or marinades or dry rubs. They are spicy and delicious combinations of ingredients such as ginger, tamarind, nutmeg, thyme, green onions, allspice berries, and Scotch bonnet chiles. Meat, poultry and fish are coated with the jerk seasoning and marinated for several hours and up to two days. The meat is then cooked in a pit, smoker or barbecue grill. The secret is to cook it very slowly.

    Jerk Sauce

    Edyth James of Saffron's Restaurant grew up in Jamaica. Here she treats us to a
    traditional recipe from the Caribbean. This jerk sauce can be used as a marinade,
    dressing or sauce on many different dishes. Try experimenting with different meats.
    You can also use this sauce as a marinade for chicken to be cooked on an open grill.

    2 ½ Scotch bonnet peppers, coarsely
    chopped
    1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
    2 bunches chives or scallions, trimmed to
    remove the roots, and coarsely chopped
    1 cup freshly chopped flat-lear parsley
    4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
    3 tablespoons salt, or to taste
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
    2 tablespoons ground allspice
    ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground cloves
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice or distilled white
    vinegar
    3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    2 tablespoons water, or as needed

    1. Combine the peppers, onion, chive or
    scallions, parsley, and garlic in a food
    processor and puree to a coarse paste.
    2. Work in the ginger, salt, thyme, allspice,
    nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves,
    lime juice, soy sauce, vegetable oil, and
    brown sugar.
    3. Add more soy sauce and salt, as needed,
    to taste.
    4. Add water to reach a thick but pourable
    consistency.

    Yield: About 3 cups of sauce
    Heat Scale: Hot

    BOSTON BEACH WET JERK RUB there's a beach in boston?
    1/2 cup fresh thyme leaves
    2 bunches(about 13) green onions
    4 tablespoons finely diced fresh ginger
    3 Scotch bonnet or Habanero peppers, stemmed
    1/4 cup peanut oil
    5 garlic cloves chopped
    3 Bay leaves
    2 teaspoons freshly ground allspice
    1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
    1 table spoon freshly ground pepper
    1 tablespoon freshly ground coriander
    1 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons salt
    Juice of 1 lime(of course!)

    Blend all ingredients in a food processor until a thick, chunky paste results. Makes 2 and 1/2 cups of marinade, which can be stored in a tightly sealed, refrigerated container for several months. Rub the meat thoroughly with this paste. For larger cuts such as pork roasts, slash the meat at two-inch intervals and force the jerk rub into the cavities. Allow the meat to marinate overnight before smoking over a slow fire until well done. This quantity of marinade is sufficient for two to three chickens or ten pounds of pork. For an extra spicy taste, extra
    sauce can be used for basting.
