Crown Roast of Pork
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 3 hours + standing
Hubert (my husband) loves a good pork roast on Sundays, it's never the same without one. Having eaten the same recipe for almost 30 years we decided it was time for a change and were so looking forward to this delicious looking alternative. Sadly, it was somewhat spoiled by the inclusion of "paper frills" which not only absorbed the fat and oil of our succulent joint but also imparted a papery undertone to the crown tips (my favourite bit).
Made this for my family for Christmas when I was just figuring out how to cook. Super easy, looks beautiful, and tastes fantastic. Made me look and feel like I knew what I was doing! :)
I read a recipe that called for a bulb of galic in the center to be finished off in the oven in a container becasue it would take longer than the crown prok roasting and also had other vegetables and a glaze like in the video but not with fruit. This must be "the" holiday entree this year. I saw them on sale two weeks ago and never remember seeing one featured in a grocery store sale page of meats ever before.
In my newspaper today, the Los Angeles Times, there is a very similar recipe. It has roasted root vegetables in the center (carrots, parsnips, etc). I bet the additional flvors really make that roast something special. It just called for the veggies to be added in the center and roasted with the meat.
