Crown Pork Roast

Prep time 20 mins
Bake time 2 hrs, 30 mins
Stand time 15 mins
Yield Makes 8 to 10 servings
This roast makes a lot, so if you have leftovers, simply cut it into chops, and freeze in zip-top plastic bags up to three months. Pull a bag out of the freezer, and thaw in the refrigerator overnight. You can then brown the chops in a skillet to warm them.


  • 3 tablespoons steak seasoning
  • 1 (11-rib) crown pork roast, trimmed and tied
  • 1 large apple
  • 1 cup fresh kumquats
  • Garnishes: fresh thyme sprigs, flat-leaf parsley, apples, pears, and kumquats

How to Make It

  1. Rub steak seasoning evenly over all sides of pork roast. Place roast in a roasting pan; position a large apple in center of roast to help hold its shape.

  2. Bake pork roast at 350° for 2 hours. Top apple with 1 cup kumquats, and bake 30 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted between ribs 2 inches into meat registers 160°. Let pork roast stand 15 minutes or until thermometer registers 165° before slicing. Garnish, if desired.
