How to Make Fireman Bob's Crown Pork Roast.................


  1. For the Pork Roast

    With your blender, blend olive oil, garlic, shallot, sage, salt, and pepper until blended.
    Rub mixture over roast.
    Place roast in roasting pan.
    Cover with foil and refrigerate for 48 hours.

    Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and 15 minutes before roasting.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F.

    Turn roast upside down (bones down) in roasting pan. Roast 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F and roast 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Prepare the stuffing...

    In large skillet, over moderately high heat, melt butter. Add jalapeno peppers, onion, celery, and garlic, sausage and saute till softened and browned.
  4. In large bowl, combine " savory corn bread " and sauteed vegetables.
    Add eggs, 1/4 cup chicken stock, cilantro, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. If mixture seems dry, mix in additional stock, slowly, until stuffing is lightly moistened. Press into baking dish.

    Thirty minutes before removing roast, place stuffing in oven. Bake until golden, about 45 minutes.
  5. When roast is done, remove from oven, tent with foil, and let stand at least 15 minutes (it will remain warm for 1 hour.)
  6. When stuffing is done, place 1/2 on the serving dish.
    Flip roast upright on top of stuffing.
    Fill center of roast with remaining stuffing.

    Great sides with this would be a Cheesy Broccoli or Cauliflower dish
