This week we were paid a visit by my brother in law who was in town for business. I knew I had to prepare something special, something that spoke of home while he was away from home. Dinner on these occasions are more than just fueling the body; they are a catching up, an affirming of the family bond that can’t be lost through distance. Dinner becomes the way to show love and reconnect. For this special dinner I turned to The Silver Spoon once again and prepared Arrosto All’arancia (Roasted Pork with Orange Sauce). It was oh so easy but oh so delicious. This will make a regular appearance on our dinner table.
3 tbsp butter
1 ½ cups orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1 clove garlic
Pinch of chili powder
Pinch of dried oregano
2 ¼ lb pork loin, boneless
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350º.
Melt butter in a pan, add orange juice, zest, garlic, chili powder, and oregano, season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
Rub the meat with salt and pepper and place in a roasted pan.

Carve and serve with the cooking juices.
