Royal Crown Pork Roast
Recipe type: Stuffing
Recipe By:
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 bunch of fresh sage
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 large onions, roughly chopped
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ c. chopped pecans
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¾ c. heavy cream
  • 1 ½ c. chicken broth
  • 5 c. hand-torn sourdough bread pieces, crusts removed
  • ½ c. rough chopped fresh parsley
  1. Put large skillet over medium heat and add 3 T. olive oil, garlic, sage and thyme. As oil heats, herbs will crackle and infuse the oil with flavor. With tongs, remove sage branches and set on paper towel to drain (will be used as garnish.)
  2. Add onions and cook until caramelized, about 12-15 minutes. Season and transfer to bowl.
  3. Add apple and pecans to skillet. Cook until pecans are toasted and apples slightly cooked, 3-5 minutes.
  4. In large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, cream and broth. Add bread, caramelized onions, apples, pecans and parsley. Use wooden spoon to mix stuffing. Season and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
*****This recipe came to me by two of my friends, Jacque Hardy and Cheryl Talbot. This was the best crown pork roast I ever ate. Might have a few extra steps but it is fabulous.
