Impress your friends and family with this spicy Fireworks Pork Loin. Keep your kitchen cool by using the air fryer to roast this. Serve it with a big salad, a few good vegetables, and white wine.

The great thing about this recipe is that it can be roasted on a rotisserie in your air fryer. That means you don’t have to worry about your kitchen getting like an inferno. It also means the pork will not be sitting in fat, so it will still be lean.

Stud the loin with garlic cloves. Garlic gives the meat a wonderful flavor, and the cloves themselves are delicious once they are roasted. First, cut the cloves into long strips, then poke small holes in the pork with a tip of a knife and insert the garlic clove pieces.

Serve the sauce on the side. The sauce contains horseradish, Russian mustard, and Tabasco. Serve it on the side for dipping. If you like things really spicy, you can brush the loin with the sauce before putting it on the rotisserie. This dish also works well for people who do not like spicy food.

Find Russian mustard in Mediterranean markets. It is also available on Amazon. If you can’t find Russian mustard, you can use any hot style mustard. Chinese mustard would work beautifully here, too. In a pinch, you could use Dijon mustard. The only mustard that would not work here would be plain yellow mustard – save that for hot dogs and chili.

Alternatives to Rotisserie Air Fryers

Suppose you don’t have a rotisserie air fryer, no worries. You could do this roast in a conventional oven. Put it on a rack and turn it every half hour or so. You could, of course, put this on an outdoor rotisserie grill. Whichever you decide to do, please enjoy it!

What to Serve with this

Depending on what time of year it is, whatever fresh vegetables are available would be great with it. Corn on the cob is a natural choice. Roasted Balsamic vegetables would be great with this.

Shaved Brussel Sprout Caesar Salad could be an alternative to the traditional lettuce and tomato salad.
