Recipes for a Ronco Rotiserrie

Does anyone have any recipes they've tried on a Ronco rotisserie? I've only tried roasting whole chickens and they've come out very juicy.

  1. I mostly only do chickens too, I put a lemon or lime inside and the juice just keeps permeating it until it's done. But my friend who gave it to me says a small roast lamb or prime rib is the way to go. I would probably marinade those first.

      I tried the lemon/lime thing and all it did was increase cooking time by about fifty percent. How long does it take you to cook one with fruit inside?

        Whatever the recommended time is, it comes out really juicy with the outside crispy.

    2. My friend had one of those while my kitchen was being remolded. I did pork tenderloin which turned out great. Also she had a small basket and we did burgers, shrimp and salmon. Can't remember what else we did. They all turned out great. I just used my regular standbye recipes and had no problem. I wouldn't think the recipes would be any different than the ones you use every day.

      1. No special recipes, but a suggestion. Get small potatoes, parboil them, salt and pepper them and then place them on the drip rack, just below the roasting bird when it's about half-way done. Stir around every once in a while, to make sure they brown evenly. Oh, yummmmmmmmmm..

        1. I usually do chickens as well. I fill the cavity with salt, pepper, lemon, rosemary, sage and garlic, and then i salt and pepper the outside. I've tried doing ribs once like you see on the infomercial but it was a lot more difficult than i though to try to drape the ribs on the skewers like they did...I ended up just roasting them in the oven.

          2. I do 3 -4 pound pork loins all the time....stud with a bunch of garlic...glaze with EVOO...crust with fresh ground pepper and kosher salt......put i according to Ronco directions..set it and forget it....I then slice paper thin on a commercial slicer...You can make a famous Philly pork sandwich made famous by Tony Luke's....made by layering the sliced pork with a layer of spicy broccholi rabe topped with sharp provolone on a crusty french baguette. The best !!

              I love you pondrat! I've got a happy pork loin to cook-just waiting for inspiration and I got it right now. NEVER would have considered making it in the Ronco. We always do whole chickens in it... a few times we did ribs, and they were great but seemed like a lot of fuss to do them with the tying and all. I keep the cooker out of sight and I guess out of mind. I'll pull it out for this weekend.

                It also works well for drying socks after sledding ! :)

                The only thing I don't like about the Ronco for por loins is the limited drippings....but when you put that olive oily broccoli rabe on top you'll never miss the pork juices.
