When it comes to holiday meals, there’s nothing quite like a juicy and flavorful pork crown roast. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but with 14-15 bones, it’s also perfect for larger families or gatherings. If you want to make sure your holiday meal is truly memorable this season, then you should definitely consider cooking a pork crown roast! In this blog post, we’ll cover all the steps necessary to prep and cook an amazing pork crown roast that will have everyone coming back for seconds.
Prepping your pork crown roast is an essential step in the cooking process. Start by having your butcher cut your pork roast into a crown. Then, add oil all over the inside and outside of the meat and season well with salt and pepper. If you’d like, you can also add some additional creative flare to your roast with things like herbs and garlic or a spice rub of your choice. After prepping and seasoning, transfer it to a large rondeau pot (or leave it on a sheet tray/roasting pan). Add foil to cover the tops of the bone so they don’t burn.
Once prepped, its time to cook! Place the roast in a 350?F oven for 90 minutes to 2 hours. Once cooked, remove the roast from the oven and take off the foil before adding your favorite stuffing to the center. Once stuffed, place it back into the oven for another 30-45 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 150?F.
When everything is cooked through, you can top with a pan sauce (if desired), then transfer to a serving board or plate and prepare to wow your guests! With its delicious flavor and beautiful presentation, there’s no better way to make sure that your holiday meal is truly memorable this season. So give pork crown roast a try – you won’t be disappointed!
