A Crown Roast of Pork is two loin rib racks joined together to make a circle. Every two or three bones, a partial cut is made to give the meat flexibility to bend. The ends are stitched together with string.

The ribs project upwards all around like the pointy bits on a crown. The hollow in the centre can be stuffed.

After cooking, each rib piece will carve like a pork chop.

Cooking Tips

Cook a Crown Roast of pork in an uncovered pan in the oven at 350 F / 175 C for 20 minutes per pound.

This is a relatively expensive joint of meat; consider using an instant read meat thermometer so that you're not tempted to dry it out through overcooking. The roast is cooked when the internal temperature hits 160 F / 71 C.
