What Is A Pork Crown?
A Pork Crown is the formation of a pork rib rack, typically 8 ribs, formed into a circle, with the ribs up.
A pork crown is a culinary achievement and it looks cool enough to be the centerpiece of your table. Packaging a pork crown is a challenge (which is why we do not sell the crowns already made) and it's best if you season the pork before you build the crown. But by looking at this video you will see how easy it is to make it yourself.
How To Make A Pork Crown From Scratch
Here are the step-by-step instructions to make your own pork crown.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350F.
Step 2: Make incisions every two bones, cut about 1" deep so you can bend the pork rack.
If you over-cut it will be fine, do not be shy.
Step 3: Season with your favorite rub.
We used our Notorious P.I.G. Rub which is awesome.
Step 4: Tie with a string to make a crown, as shown.
This part can be challenging if you do not have a lot of experience. It helps to enlist a helper who can tie the string while you hold the crown.
Take your time and be patient. Trust us, it's worth it!
Step 5: OPTIONAL: Make incisions in between the bones on top.
This will improve the look of your crown once cooked, has no impact on flavor.
Step 6: Place in a rack, bones up.
Step 7: Cook 18 minutes per lbs (until 145-160 internal temperature).
You CAN eat pork cooked medium, specially when we are using high quality pork such as the one Meat N' Bone sells.
Step 8: Rest for 20 min.
Step 9: Carve and serve!
