Inspired by my friend Mary Rocto’s Jerk sauce recipe, I created a new thicker Jerk marinade, perfect for burgers and pot roasts. Earlier I created a Jerk sauce recipe, perfect to marinate Chicken, but needed something thicker to flavour burgers without the patty falling apart.

I tweaked the recipe and happy to report that this marinade/paste is perfect for your homemade burgers. Just the smell of the marinade reminds me of sunny days in our backyard with the grass under my flip flops and the scent of seasonal blooms in the air.JerkPasteH2
