You'll find this stunning pork dish on culinary historian Jessica B. Harris's Kwanzaa table, alongside her Any-Season Succotash. "Kwanzaa, which runs from the day after Christmas through New Year's, uses Swahili as its language. Seven is an important number for the holiday, with seven days, seven principles, and seven symbols that are used on the centerpiece for Kwanzaa." Over the past two decades, an opulent feast has been a staple of Harris's holiday celebrations. "There was always a groaning board buffet that was loaded with foods from the African diaspora. It featured everything from American fried chicken and collard greens to Jamaican jerk chicken and rice and peas to Trinidadian curries and rotis."
This Pecan-Coated Pork Loin Roast is certainly fit for a celebration. This elegant roast is rubbed with a mixture of dark brown sugar and herbs and then marinated overnight for an extra-rich flavor. A crust of chopped pecans adds a little crunch that balances the tender meat beautifully.
