It’s National Crown Roast of Pork Day!   Say what?

Yeah, you are supposed to cook a Crown Roast Pork to celebrate.  I know right now you're saying "Uhhh, yeah, maybe I could cook it, if I knew what it was."  Well you actually do know--but you just don’t know you know.

You have probably seen a Crown Roast of Pork laid out and flat.    It’s the shape that gives Crown Roast its name.  Crown Roast of Pork is a bone-in pork loin, trimmed of excess fat and gristle so the bones protrude white and shining. Then the whole thing is tied into a ring.  Voila! It looks like this:

Crown Roast of Pork can get expensive. Check out this one cooked and stuffed from Neiman Marcus, only $250 dollars plus $29 shipping and handling.

It comes with herb oil and three pounds of dried cherry and roasted pecan dressing. Approximately 12 pounds, serves 24--if you can get them to eat 8 ounce servings.  In my house that will probably serve 6.

If you want to know how to do one yourself,check out this video. This lady made it for Christmas. Because it cost so much!

 

You know what? On second thought, forget the Crown Roast.  Let’s just get some Spare Ribs, cut 'em up, grill 'em, and put 'em on the serving plate in a circle. Now that’s my kinda Crown Pig!
