Crown Roast Ribs
Crown Roast Ribs are a sensational dish for the holidays. This dish is cooked 2 hours and thirty minutes at 375 degrees, and feeds twelve to fourteen people. The recipe is easy and includes:
• ½ bunch fresh sage leaves
• ½ bunch thyme leaves
• 2 cloves of garlic, gently smashed
• Freshly ground black pepper
• Kosher salt
• Extra-virgin olive oil
• A 10-pound pork rib roast
Preheat the oven, and make certain the roasting pan will fit in the oven by lowering the oven racks. Combine the sage, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Break up the garlic and herbs by mashing them, then add approximately 1 cup of oil. Mix these ingredients together well.
Use a boning knife to clean the bones of meat on the crown roast of pork. Make a little cut with a knife between each rib. This will allow the ribs to easily form a circle. Make sure to save the scraps. Using the mixture of herbs, rub the pork everywhere. With the ribs facing the outside, wrap the rack until the ends meet. Use kitchen twine to secure the ribs in place. A skewer will keep the shape until the twine has been wrapped.
Put the crown roast into a roasting pan, and use the scraps around the bottom next to the roast. This will add a lot of flavor to the sauce. The pork should be at room temperature before it is placed in the oven. This delightful dish will make any occasion special.
