best jamaican foodI don’t eat meat. But, I still remember the flavors of some of the food dishes my Grandmother and Mother would cook for me. Before I became a Rastafari I would visit some of the Jamaican food Restaurants, so I am pretty confident I know my stuff. Plus, Jamaican food is so vast, you can be vegetarian and still enjoy flavorful Jamaican food without the meat.

  1. Jamaican Curry Goat – This Jamaican food dish is so popular and so good. Mostly men request it at Jamaican food restaurants. Before I became vegan, this was my favorite Jamaican food dish.
  2. Jamaican Jerk Chicken – Jamaican Jerk Chick is probably one of our top 2 dishes we are world Renowned for. Its spice, hot, and tastes really good. You can buy the Jerk Sauce at the supermarket and cook it at home. I did this once, I put way too much Jerk Sauce.
  3. Jamaican Jerk Pork – I think this food dish is a favorite of20130715-jerk-chicken-final-food-lab-38many people (non Rastafari) Before I became a Rastafari I loved to eat me some Jerk Pork. Try it if you get a chance. Tasty. I am remembering form over 10 years ago.
  4. Ackee and Salt Fish – This is known as Jamaica’s “International” dish. Ackee and Saltfish is eaten, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
  5. Jamaican Run Down – Jamaican Run down. Jamaican run down is so commonly cooked in Jamaican culture that its often overlooked. Jamaican run down is a breakfast that is made with salt fish tomato, black pepper, oil, scallion. It tastes salty and we cook it with some plain dumplings on the side. Makes a great breakfast, or snack. Sometimes we eat it for dinner too.
  6. Jamaican Oxtail – Ok I have a confession. Out of all the flavors of Oxtail-Butter-Beanseach individual Jamaican food, Jamican oxtail has the best flavors. Don’t ask me what they cook it with I do not know off the top of my head….but you should cook this at home. You will be blown away by the way it tastes. Trust me.
  7. Jamaican Fried Fish – Jamaican fried fish. Just thinking about makes me want to go back to Jamaica. Jamaican fried fish is a food you eat when you want some healthy comfort food if that makes sense. Jamaicans will often request fried fish is they are tired of eating Chicken or if they are vegetarian but still don’t mind eating fish. (like me)
  8. Jamaican stew Chicken – This is still my favorite Jamaican food dish. I am not crazy about eating Chicken anymore. I seek it out about once a month. The taste of Jamaican stew Chicken is one your palette will never forget.
  9. Chicken Foot Soup – Chicken foot Soup. Chicken foot soup tastes jamaican chicken foot soupgreat when you are in the mood for it. Sometimes if you are not feeling well, or feel like you wan to eat something full of nutrients Jamaican foot soup might be the answer. Jamaican people cook it so good and it doesnt cost a lot of money to make.
  10. Jamaican Curry Chicken – Jamaican curry chicken is delicious so many people admire Jamaica for this dish. Jamaican Curry chicken is another meal that some people think every Jamaican eats. Well I take that as a compliment.

A Warning to those who are Blessed!

pearls before swineLets Face it Jah has blessed some of us with many gifts, talents, prosperity, good looks etc. This bible Verse is a warning to those who are blessed.

Jesus Said “Don’t Cast your Pearls before the Swine.”

The Pearls: Your spiritual gifts, Your Talents, The good things in your life…these are blessings from the Most High.

The Swine: Individuals of a Certain Mindset. These individuals are being used by Satan. Most of the time they do not know it. 

  • Do not understand blessings or God
  • Are Jealous of the accomplishments of others
  • Are unhappy with their own life
  • Carry Satanic Energy of Envy and jealousy

Swine Actions: A swine knows but only a few actions right?

  • To Snort
  • To Wallow in its own filth
  • To Eat
  • To Trample

Keep Silent or Share with those of a Like mind

If you have a blessing, a gift, a spiritual secret… keep it to yourself don’t go casting it (your pearls) before swine who do not understand these things, and therefor will not appreciate you blessing(s). If you want to share you blessings it…perhaps find some people like of a like mind, with similar experience…those who will appreciate it you..or just keep silent about it. 

Blessed. Rastafari.

jamaican jerk ribs

You will need…

  • 1 Cup of Jamaican Jerk Marinade
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 4 pounds of pork spared ribs
  • About 1 ½ cups of barbecue sauce

How to Prepare

Step 1
Combine the Jerk Marinade, sugar and vinegar. Add the ribs and turn to coat lightly. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours. Let the chilled meat come to room temperature before grilling.
Step 3

Prepare a low fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to 225 degrees fahrenheit. If you’re using a charcoal grill, when the coals have burned down, rake them to the side.

Step 4

Set a drip pan in the center of the fuel bed and arrange the coals around it to provide indirect heat.

If you’re using a gas grill, place the drip pan away from the burner.
Step 5

Place the ribs on the grill over the dip pan, cover the grill, and cook for 4 – 5 hours, turning and brushing frequently with the marinade. Add more coals as needed during the cooking time to keep the fire at an even 225 Fahrenheit . Brush the ribs with the barbecue sauce during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
