How to Make It
    For Jamaican Spice Mix
  1. Add all ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. Store the mixture in an airtight container. The flavors will start to diminish after 3 months but should be usable for up to a year.

  4. Place a skillet over medium heat. Once it is heated, add the oil and pork. Toss continually for 2 minutes. Add the ginger, mango, and bell pepper and cook for another 2–4 minutes, or until the pork is no longer pink.
  5. Whisk the orange juice, cornstarch, and the Scotch bonnet pepper in a small bowl. Pour into the skillet, stirring continually. Cook for 2–3 minutes till the sauce has thickened.
  6. Sprinkle the green onion over the dish and serve it over rice while warm.
