Crown Roast

Kim Biegacki


Celebrating my parents wedding anniversary this evening with flair. We love them so and are blessed to have them in our lives; making it a most deserving occasion to splurge. Now, I didn't intend on cooking the roast as my husband always cooks the large cuts of meat. But we couldn't all meet up until a weekday, so that left me cooking it alone. My husband got home in time to make his incredible gravy that always graces the table. I really don't do gravy. hehe

Well, as you can see I did it. Yep, I can't believe it either. I cooked it in my roaster and it seems to cook more evenly than our oven does.

Wow, what an incredible beautiful cut of meat. It is so tender & moist too. I love how you can put the stuffing down in the middle of the crown. I must say, I think it is a crown fit for a woman! You have different temps that you cook it on throughout the process and put little booties on it too. hehe Very delicious and worth the wait to make it. Plus, it is a gorgeous centerpiece as well.

How to Make Crown Roast


  1. Combine all your seasonings except for orange juice. Then, coat evenly your crown roast. Also, wrap each bone with tin foil, so they do not burn. Let it sit for a 1/2 hour before cooking.
  2. Next, place in roaster, pour your orange juice over the top and then cover. Roast at 450 degrees for 1/2 an hour and then drop temp. to 250 degrees for 2 hours. Next, I checked the internal temp. which should reach at least 165 degrees inside. It was at 125 so I turned the temp back up to 350 for an hour and it reached internal temp and was ready. I turned it off and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I plated and garnished with oranges and cranberries on a bed of greens. I added my stuffing at this time as well. You can add it into the center of the crown roast while it is cooking if you like.
    ~~~~~~for cooking a pork roast calculate weight of roast by cooking about 23-30 minutes per pound.
  3. This must go to the table first and then sliced at the table. It needs to be admired before cutting it up. lol.....It gets alot of Oooohhh's, and Wow's....hehe Next, you will slice in between the bones.
  4. Plate and enjoy your crown roast meal.
  5. Our two little Schnoodles were so good during dinner they got some of Daddy's Crown Roast gravy over their dog food. Wow, were they excited. LOL
