Jerk Pork Lettuce Wraps
  1. Slice onions and layer on the bottom of your crockpot, turn crockpot to low.
  2. Coat the tenderloin with salt, pepper and jerk seasoning. I use my hands for this, massaging the seasoning into the meat.
  3. On medium high heat, coat saucepan with desired oil.
  4. Once the pan is hot, brown all sides of the tenderloin. Don't be speedy about this process as this is how you get good flavor in your dish.
  5. Remove the pork from the saucepan and lay it on top of the bed of onions in the crockpot.
  6. Deglaze the saucepan with beer, wine or stock. Let it foam up in the pan until all the yummy brown bits are lifted from the bottom. I use a wooden spoon to help this process along. Then pour this mixture overtop of the pork in your crockpot and close the lid. Check in about 4 hours, and when the pork shreds easily you know it is done. Time will vary depending on your crockpot.
  7. To make the sauce: Combine the Sesame oil and Honey, add the Sambal Olek for heat. Sambal Olek is fairly spicy so add according to your tolerance and taste.
  8. Divide lettuce into individual leaves, rinse and dry. Place lettuce leaf on your plate, add pork and sauce and some slaw if you have it. Enjoy!
