An Alternative Meat for Special Dinners

Special dinners are the centerpiece around which family and friends gather during celebrations or holiday time for fellowship and good, home-cooked food. We look forward to the traditional dishes whose aromas and flavors evoke memories of hallowed traditions.

But sometimes a modification to the traditional holiday dinner is in order. Consider roast pork loin as an alternative choice or addition to your menu of turkey and fixings. There's nothing sweeter than a surprise or unexpected dish to share with your family and guests.

Pork, known as "the other white meat," will complement your menu as it pairs well with the traditional sides your family has come to look forward to and love during the holiday season. Serve roast pork loin with mounds of mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, rice pilaf, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes.

Pork is seasoned with a combination of special ingredients that render a satisfying flavor.

Directions

  1. Rinse the pork well with water. Rub down the meat with all herbs and seasonings including olive oil, vinegar, and soy sauce to ensure thorough coverage.
  2. Wrap the pork well with a long piece of plastic wrap by rolling and tucking plastic securely around pork. Refrigerate to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
  4. Place the pork loin into the baking dish with the fatty side up. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake pork loin for about 30 minutes uncovered.
  5. After desired browning, cover with foil to continue cooking for about another 20 to 30 minutes, depending on preference. Test pork for doneness by using a meat thermometer. Pork should cook until the center reaches 160 degrees. (See links below for more information on cooking pork.)
  6. Let the pork rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Spoon pan drippings over sliced pork on either a serving dish or straight onto individual dinner plates.
