Jamaican Jerk Sauce – #1 Best Seller for 2018

Starport Foods - SWEET GINGER SAUCE 
MFC 216S, SUPC 5061736Starport’s Jamaican Jerk Sauce (4/1gal) is this summer’s favorite sauce, kicking conventional BBQ sauce to the curb! This savory and aromatic sauce is Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free, and comes in a handy, shelf-stable gallon jug. The warm and earthy spices of cinnamon, allspice, and chili peppers create a delicious jerk sauce that is perfect for summer grilling: chicken, wings, ribs, hamburgers, or for making pulled pork in the oven, crock pot or Instant Pot. Drizzle more fresh Jamaican Jerk Sauce before serving.

Add a new, savory flavor to your menu line up with Jamaican Jerk Sauce. It is delicious for all ages of consumers, including little ones. Our granddaughters love it! Add more chili peppers if you want a really spicy sauce.

Jerk chicken refers to a traditional Jamaican and Caribbean/West Indies method of cooking chicken or pork that has been marinated in a tangy, hot & spicy wet or dry rub. Apparently in the old days, the meat was cooked in a clay oven or slow roasted over a charcoal fire. When the meat was done, a hooked poker was used to jerk the meat off the fire.

I don’t know if I buy that explanation, do you? Maybe it refers to the person cooking it? Nah, just kidding! Who cares? This sauce is soooo good!

Starport’s Jamaican Jerk Sauce is packed in a convenient 1 gallon plastic (yes the jug is recyclable) foodservice size, case pack is 4/1 gallon. It is affordable, delicious and consistent. This ready-to-use sauce saves so much time in sourcing ingredients and the time that it would take to make the sauce from scratch.

One of our favorite “go-to”, feed-a-crowd meals is Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork sliders on Hawaiian buns or dinner rolls, garnished with chopped green onions (you can also add chopped cilantro and chopped jalapeño if you like). We prefer pork butt/shoulder and have cooked the Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork in an oven bag, crock pot, Instant Pot and in a roasting pan, tightly wrapped with aluminum foil. When done, simple shred with forks or fingers and drizzle more sauce over as needed. Optional: you can broil the cooked and shredded Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork to get some of the meat crispy, similar to making Carnitas.

Our customers use Starport’s Jamaican Jerk Sauce as a pizza base, for Jamaican Jerk Saucy Wings (not like the dry rub wings), on grilled salmon and for chicken sandwiches and wraps.

Jamaican Jerk Sauce is going to be a staple seasoning in every Foodie’s pantry. Try it, you’re gonna love it!
