Stuffed Crown Roast of Pork Recipe

Stuffed Crown Roast of Pork Recipe

I first made this recipe on Christmas...the oohs and aahs from my family were a delight! In addition to the holidays, I sometimes make a crown roast for Sunday dinner - it reminds me of my childhood, when Sunday dinners were always special. People would often stop by in the afternoon hoping to be asked to stay for a meal since Mom was such a good cook.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 3 hours YIELD:16-20 servings

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery

  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • Spiced crab apples, optional

Directions

  • 1. Tie roast and place on a rack in a large roasting pan. Cover the bone ends with foil. Insert met thermometer. Roast at 350° for 2 hours.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the pork and sausage until browned; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add apple and celery; cook for 5 minutes.
