Jamaican Jerk Pork Chops with Island Salsa

In Jamaica, the “jerk” method of food preparation involves seasoning meat with a sweet-hot “secret” mixture of peppers, tropical spices like cinnamon and allspice, rosemary and other savory herbs, then slow grilling or roasting. This specially created spice blend captures the tantalizing taste of the islands in just 30 minutes.
