This is a great roast for a holiday meal or Sunday dinner.
Pair tender pork slices with boiled red potatoes and a fragrant white wine sauce, flavored with rosemary and cranberry chutney.
To ring in the New Year, I spend the better part of the wait before midnight making up batches of little “munchies,” which we nibble on while playing Super Scrabble and watching Dick Clark’s Rocking New Year’s Eve.
A special treat for holiday gatherings – Lechón is a traditional Spanish dish that is popular in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Phillipines, and throughout South America. The meat is seasoned, marinated, and then slow roasted in the oven until it is fork tender. A dish for special occasions, meant to feed a crowd.
Cabbage and onions are sauteed in bacon grease, and served with a splash of vinegar, for a tangy, hearty dish that will surprise you.
