It's important to note that while there are the standard recipes that are often prepared for holiday meals, there are other main course recipes--like those for pork loin--that work just as well for the holidays as they do for a sit down meal any time of the year.
Pork Loin is one of those beautifully prepared meats that slices nicely and can be shown off in such a way that it looks like it might have been prepared by a professional chef right at home in your kitchen.
Now, while we're not saying you have to dress it up and put it on display, this recipe will definitely set you up for a successful dinner presentation.
Of course, we can never serve up Garlic Mashed Potatoes enough, so if that side dish is something you fancy...well, we don't blame you one bit.
It's easy to indulge when you have a tasty meal that looks and tastes so good.
One of the things I really like about pork loin is that it is lower in fat and healthier for you than red meat.
If you're a big meat eater, it's a great idea to switch up what you're serving so you have a good variation of meals.
Honey Mustard Pork Loin is a terrific recipe to serve during the holidays, but it is also a recipe that is easy and can be made any day of the week.
If you want to save this tasty dish for special occasions, don't forget about big family dinners and birthdays. There is no reason to reserve this delicious meat for just once a year.
