Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

Nutritional Facts

1 pork rib plus 1/3 cup stuffing equals 639 calories, 22 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 142 mg cholesterol, 273 mg sodium, 64 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 46 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, apricots and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Stir in the rice, onion, parsley, butter, lemon peel, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
  3. Cut a deep lengthwise slit in between each bone of the pork roast (do not cut apart); stuff with rice mixture. Place fat side up on a rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan. Place remaining rice in a 1-qt. baking dish; cover and refrigerate.
  4. Bake roast, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour. Combine preserves and lemon juice; brush over roast. Bake 15-30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 145°, basting twice with remaining preserves mixture.
  5. Bake additional rice for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Let roast stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
