Crown Roast of Pork with Mushroom Dressing
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 2 hours
Elegant recipe with simple ingredients! It wow'd the crowd.
I save this entire menu (the original layout in the TOH, 1996 issue). This menu has been my special event menu for several years now. I love it so much I wrote to Betty (the submitting editor) and she was as delightful as this meal. The roast is always a hit from my then teenage kids to now my adult kids and their friends. This is always a wow. The side dishes and beverages that she chose for this menu are superb and I duplicate this menu without any bother to substitute ...this is already perfection!
I made this several times when it was first published, fab every time! Forgot about it for several years, now ready to make again with homemade apricot jam. mmm
I'm a campfire dutch oven cook and always looking foir a challenge and something to whoa! the folks around te campfire. This really did it. I agree about the size. I ended up with 14 ribs. Outstanding flavor and whoa factor.
This recipe was fabulous!!!!! I made it for Christmas dinner with a sausage cranberry stuffing. It was a big hit and looked exactly like the photo. I was tender and juicy, not dry at all. The string of cranberrys was a nice touch Everyone loved it----so good and so beautiful!!!!
I always thought pork crown roasts were a lot of fuss, until I finally got up my courage and tried this recipe. It was easy and looked and tasted terrific! It looks like you're a gourmet cook, which I definitely am not. However, I admit I didn't do the cranberry garnish. Terrific recipe for the holidays, esp New Year's.
This recipe and the beautiful TOH photo inspired me to make a crown roast of pork for Christmas Eve. I used a slightly larger size roast than the recipe calls for, because my butcher could not give me fewer than 12 ribs in a crown roast of pork. I cooked it a bit longer than the recipe called for, and added the glaze an hour before taking it out of the oven. This was really very easy to make and it made a beautiful, impressive main dish for my holiday dinner.
This was really fabulous. So delicious and elegant. It was much easier to make than I thought it would be.
