A Symbolic and Delicious Stuffed Crown Roast

Every Easter we serve a Pork Crown Roast.

To us, it symbolizes the true meaning of Easter, and it is a magnificent feast, worthy of Kings.

This cut consists of a rack of ribs with the prized tenderloin still attached.

The ribs are pulled into a circle and tied together, so the ribs point to a “crown.”

Typically you will need to pre-order your crown roast a few days before your celebration.

They average about seven pounds.

I find them to be slightly less expensive than a honey-glazed ham and it makes for a spectacular table.

Stuffed Crown Roast Recipe Ingredients:

1 pork roast (8-10 pounds)

salt to taste

2 Cups Apricot Preserves

Stuffing (see recipe below)
