Great to have during the fall months when the weather outside is crisp.

This roasted pork loin is an easy weeknight recipe. The roast is tender and juicy. A peppercorn crust adds a bit of heat, but the creamy peppercorn dipping sauce cools it down. Simple and satisfying! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
