Pork is especially popular in Denmark, where it’s the centerpiece of our Christmas table. Be sure to offer everyone some of the fragrant onion-orange stuffing and crunchy crackling along with their slices of juicy pork. The unusual gravy gets its deep sweet-and-savory flavor from homemade stock, the roast drippings, creamy Danish blue cheese, and red currant jelly. This dish is equally good cold the next day, on rye bread with a sprinkle of coarse salt and leftover braised cabbage.
Make Ahead Tips
You can prepare the pork for roasting up to 6 hours ahead; after roasting, let it rest for up to 1 hour.

I made the entire meal for my extended family. It has a beautiful presentation, all of the flavors blend together perfectly. Everyone loved it and said this meal raised the bar for family meals.
It looked gorgeous, but I thought the flavor was underwhelming. (And I had seasoned generously and upped the amount of stuffing a bit.) Presentation-wise, this was a five star meal (served with the caramel potatoes and sweet and sour cabbage), but I would probably not make any of it again.
