5 stars, OUTSTANDING, restaurant quality! I would serve this to guests. I made & used this batch of homemade Jerk seasoning: 1 teas each onion salt, allspice, thyme, pepper; 1/2 teas each turbinado sugar (can use regular) & garlic powder; 1/4 teas each ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne, marjoram, sage & rosemary.

I was a little disappointed in this. Pork shoulder in the crockpot is a beautiful texture, but this recipe isn't flavorful enough. Next time I'll add some cayenne. The mayo, even with all that gorgeous lime, is still very mayo-flavored, so perhaps adding some chopped serrano peppers would make it better.

Tasty recipe and a good way to mix up our usual taco night. I added an extra tablespoon of Jerk seasoning plus some extra salt to the finished pork. I'm glad that I bought a large roast so we have extra meat in the freezer for another dinner.

The flavor of the pork was underwhelming. I mixed in two additional teaspoons of the jerk seasoning to the leftovers. By the third dinner we were starting to notice the flavor. The Lime Mayo had a delightful, light flavor. We thought it would be a pleasant change from plain mayonnaise for sandwiches

One of my favorite easy weeknight recipes. Even our 2 year old loves it. We make extra lime mayo. :)
