This is my favorite fall meal for gathering with friends--roasted loin of pork with caramelized onions and dried cranberries. Simple enough, but so satisfying.
The roast benefits from overnight marinating for best flavor. The sauce of caramelized onions and dried cranberries can be made a day ahead, reheated at serving time and mixed with the pan juices.
Start off with a green salad tossed with walnuts and Gorgonzola dressing. Pour a Pinot Noir and finish up with your favorite chocolate dessert. A warm double chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream is my choice.
