Now that we’re in the holiday season, family meals and gatherings are abundant. This savory Pork Loin Roast is an excellent, festive centerpiece the whole family will love.

Speaking of festive, I hope that your Thanksgiving dinner was a success… I know mine was! We had 17 guests this year, so I opted to do both a Thanksgiving Turkey in my Ronco Rotisserie as well as a Mojo marinated pork leg in the oven. In times like that, I am truly grateful to own a rotisserie. Can you imagine having to feed 17 people out of just one oven? Everything turned out delicious. We had plenty to eat, and my stress level was on low thanks to my rotisserie.

Throughout November, we shared a unique Rotisserie poultry recipe twice a week in our Holiday Rotisserie Poultry Guide. Don’t get me wrong… poultry is great for any holiday, but now I’d like to turn my attention to all the other wonderful winter and holiday meat recipes you can make using your Ronco products.

So keep an eye out this December for winter & holiday-inspired recipes!
