The real Jamaican pork and beans recipe. I used fresh pig's tail and baked beans.
I purchased two pounds of pig's tail from the local butcher. Chop the pig's tail into bit-sized pieces then wash with vinegar and water. Drain, then pat dry, using a piece of paper towel
2 lbs. pig's tail
1 tin baked beans, drained
1/2 tsp. of the following
Badia complete seasoning
1 tsp. food browning or 1 tsp. browning sugar
2 cups water
1 tbsp. ketchup, optional
1 stalk escallion, chopped
Piece of thyme, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 hot pepper, chopped
2 tsp. oil
1. season pig's tail with all the spices, including the salt and food browning
2. Then add escallion, thyme, onion and hot pepper
3. Put a Dutch pot on low heat, add the oil. Put the seasoned pig's tail into the hot oil. Stir and cover pot. Cook pig's into its own juice until it starts to fry.
4. Add the 2 cups of water. Turn up heat to medium/high and cook pig's tail until soft.
5. Depending on the texture of the pig's tail, it should be cooked, if not add more water
6. Add ketchup and taste if more salt is needed, add baked beans. Cover pot and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
7. Remove from heat and serve
