Ingredients

Crown Pork Roast

  • 1 9-10 pound pork crown roast tied into a circle (ask your butcher to do this for you)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons whole white peppercorns coarsely ground
  • 1/2 cup garlic finely minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh thyme chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh rosemary chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage * chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

Fingerling Potatoes & Onions

  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes scrubbed
  • 1 pound pearl onions peeled

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Prepare rub for pork crown roast by combining Kosher salt through parsley in a bowl. You can even take it for a few pulses in the food processor to get a really fine mix that will stick well to the roast.
  • Place roast into a roasting pan and massage well with 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. Add rub mixture, making sure all the nooks and crannies are covered.
  • Place into the oven for 15 minutes before reducing temperture to 350 degrees. Cook for 2 hours.
  • Remove and add fingerling potatoes and onions, tossing in the natural au jus and spices in the bottom of the roasting pan. Return to the oven for 30-45 minutes or until pork crown roast reaches an internal temperture of 145 degrees. Cooking time will vary based on the size of your roast.
  • Remove and allow to rest for 20 minutes before removing string and transferring pork crown roast, potatoes and onions to a serving platter.
