  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Place pork roast on a rack in large roasting pan. Rub remaining 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning over pork.

  • Roast in 425 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Roast until internal temperature registers 150 degrees F on instant-read thermometer, 55 to 60 minutes. Let pork rest in warm place 10 minutes before slicing (internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F).

  • While meat is resting, in large pot, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add sweet peppers; saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Add milk and garlic salt. Bring to boiling.

  • Slowly pour in polenta, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat, until polenta pulls away from sides of pot, about 3 minutes, taking care not to let the polenta stick. Stir in remaining 4 tablespoons butter and black pepper and cook until the butter is completely melted.

  • Serve polenta immediately with sliced pork roast. Makes 8 servings.
