If you want a dish that will truly WOW all the senses, then this Crown Roast of Pork is for you. This roast makes a royal presentation, is full of flavor, and will fill your home with the aromas of comfort food. Plus, the preparation is EASY! Your guests will be amazed, I promise.
This was the main course at our very first Great 8 Dinner 20 years ago. And I recently made it for my husband’s birthday dinner. Because roasts are so hands off (you basically put them in the oven and forget them), there was plenty of time to make the side dishes. Dinner for 10 was fairly simple (considering it was dinner for 10!). I mean, please, a dinner party for 10 is never super easy, but if you want elegant and are serving a large party, then this roast will make it easier.
Start with a festive holiday salad, then serve the roast with Wild Rice Stuffing or Broccoli Rabe (or any green vegetable). Voilà! Dinner fit for the King or Queen in your life…and all your royal subjects!
The one thing you do need to remember is to order this roast ahead of time. Most stores don’t just have these ready to go. Ask your local butcher how far ahead of time you should place your order.
My butcher gives these frills to me when I pick up the roast, but if yours doesn’t provide them…
If you have a cookie cooling rack that fits inside one of your large pans, you can use that. If not, I like these racks the best. Kyle gave us each a set and they work Gr8 and are a breeze to clean!
