crown pork roast
ground black pepper
white bread cubes
apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
This recipe is a real crowd pleaser. I added 2 1/2 cups of the whole cranberry sauce instead of the cranberries, apple juice and sugar. The dressing was delicious. I used a rub of sage, rosemary, salt, garlic, shallots and olive oil on the roast. The house smelled great! My roast didn't take as long to cook either, at 7.75 pounds, but I was keeping an eye out, so it turned out moist and tender. I laid some apples cut in half on the rack with the roast when cooking, and put them on the outside of the platter when serving. Made quite the presentation, bone booties and all!
The dressing recipe here was good. I have always loved roast pork and crown roasts for the festivity of it. As I read the recipe, it seemed 375 degrees was a high temperature for cooking meat. I cooked it for the exact amount of time since I did not have a meat thermometer. My roast was 10 lbs and it still came out quite dry. My oven has an accurate temperature for baking. Next time I will cook it at the high temperature the first hour and then reduce the heat to 325.
One Rib per person was fine, Delete the egg and apple juice in the stuffing if the bread crumbs are fresh.
I found the roast overcooked when it reached 175 internal temperature. Next time I would take it out at 155-160 and let it rest for 15 minutes. The temperature should go up 5 degrees in resting.
This recipe was perfect in every way. Easy to do, tasted absolutely wonderful and was as tender and moist as you could possibly want.
This is a special "family" gathering entree. Namely because it is simple enough, yet fancy or elegant enough to make your family and friends feel as if you "really" care and out did yourself! I opted not to include the apple juice, too much moisture can be just as bad as too little. I also sauteed the onions and celery in the butter and used Ocean Spray Jelled Cranberry sauce. I whipped the sauce and then added it into the onion/celery sautee allowing it to melt/meld. I added three cloves of minced garlic to this mix at the end of the cooking time, (right about 10 minutes before the end of cooking)and added everything to a large bowl mixing with a wooden spoon. I also deleted the egg, there is no need for this binder if you do not use the apple juice. If you find your stuffing to dry for your liking add a little apple juice, a little at a time until you achieve the desired level of moistness.
Nontheless, your family and friends will feel warm and fuzzy and you will feel pretty darn good yourself when you serve this roast!
I skipped the crown roast because of cost and used a boneless pork loin roast. The review here is for the fabulous stuffing. It's too bad it's not in a cagagory by it's self because people may not find it. So if your looking for a roast I suggest you do a loin roast and follow the recipe I found on this site with 1/2 cup vinegar plus 1 tsp thyme and go directly to the stuffing. I followed the recipe as directed and it got rave reviews from everyone. I never thought anything could replace my mother's stuffing but this will come close, at least some of the time. This is great! A+++++
FANTASTIC. Made for mother in laws birthday and it turned out beautifully. Being a self-taught cook I wasn't aware that with crown pork roast it's sometimes better to tell how much you're getting with number of ribs not weight. I got a 12 rib roast to feed my crowd and it worked out very well. I rubbed it before putting it in the oven with a rosemary, garlic, pepper and little but of thyme mixed with olive oil to make a paste. It smelled so good while cooking and the dressing was beautiful and tasted great. It is so easy to prepare and looks so elegant that you can't go wrong!! Keep in mind however that it is NOT an inexpensive dish..definitely for special occasions only.
I give it five stars!Fantastic roast and presentation.Talk of the table!
I modified the stuffing by using canned whole cranberry sauce,omitted adding sugar and apple juice,replacing the liquid with water.Baked it in a covered casserole.Recipe is a keeper.Thankk you.
