Delicious! I made this exactly as written except I ran a metal skewer up each braid instead of messing around with the toothpicks and I think this kept them together better.
This pork was fantastic, I made it exactly as directed. It looked beautiful and tasted great. It was perfect. I served this with sweet potato mash (all recipies) and baked asparagus, for dessert a rice pudding and people are still talking about it.
These were surprisingly easy-to-make! I didn't have rum or mango nectar on hand, so I just made some jerk seasoning, mixed it with oil and orange juice, and the braids still came out pretty tasty and juicy. I might just make the faithful version for a special occasion! The pork was relatively easy to braid, and I tied the ends together with string (no toothpicks around!) This also works pretty well with pork sirloin roast, although the pieces need to be grilled longer. Very good!
