Crown Roast of Pork

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Place the stuffed, Standing Crown Pork Roast in a large roasting pan. Cover the pork bones with aluminum foil to prevent the bones from burning. Place a small amount (1/4 to 1/2 inch) of stock or water, beer, or wine in the roasting pan as well. Place the roasting pan with the roast into the oven. Bake until the pork is starting to brown, about 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Turn the oven down to 325 degrees F.

Roast the pork for 2 to 2 1/2 more hours, basting the pork occasionally with pan liquid and drippings. Rotate the pork a couple of times during the cooking time. If the liquid level reduces, replace it with stock or water or your choice of basting juice.

When the pork is cooked to the proper doneness—an instant-read thermometer should read 140 to 145 degrees F, remove from the oven. Carefully transfer the pork to a serving platter and cover it loosely with aluminum foil. Let the pork rest for 20 to 25 minutes.
