photo by Derf2440
- Ready In:
- 4hrs 25mins
- 7 lbs rib roast, approx (16 ribs)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- 6 tablespoons margarine (do not use butter as it will brown too much)
- 1 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup celery, finely chopped
- 6 cups dry breadcrumbs
- 2 cups apples, peeled cored and diced (use a sweeter apple like a macIntosh)
- 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
- 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
- 1 cup apple juice (or a bit more)
- salt and pepper
- Combine the salt, pepper, garlic and Worcestershire and rub into the roast.
- Place flat in a roaster bone ends down and roast covered for 2 hours in a 325 F oven.
- Meanwhile prepare the stuffing: Saute the onion and celery in the margarine until the onions are translucent and pour into a large mixing bowl.
- Add crumbs, apples, poultry seasoning, parsley flakes, 1 cup of apple juice, season with salt and pepper.
- Add a bit more juice if needed.
- The stuffing should be moist enough to hold together when squeezed lightly.
- After you have roasted the meat for 2 hours, remove it from the oven.
- Turn it so the rib ends are pointing out when you stand it on edge (like to secure the joining ribs with a bit of wire).
- Place a sleeve of tin foil in the center of the roast, have the foil large enough that you will be able to cover the stuffing by folding it over when filled.
- Fill the sleeve with the stuffing, fold foil over.
- Return the roast uncovered until the internal temp reaches 170F (apprx 1 1/2 hours).
- Decorate the rib ends with gay colored socks (use colors to match the seasons or holiday) after you have removed it from the oven and are ready to serve.
- **If, after stuffing the sleeve in the center of the roast, you have stuffing left over put it in a lightly greased casserole dish and put in the oven for the last 1 1/2 roasting time.

Bergy I thought that I rated this and I guess I forgot! This really was good and the stuffing was excellent! I had the gang here after Christmas and I followed your recipe and I thank you for the help! It was a huge hit! I have another in the freezer and will definitely use your recipe again! You really need a lot of people to fully appreciate the crown in place. I served 12 people and had leftover. Anything smaller and you don't get the crown. Thank you most kindly, Jelly :)
wow Bergy an outstanding roast! wonderful flavour and lovely mosit pork and the stuffing was the best, I used cubed whole wheat bread and a mac apple and had no apple juice in so used chicken broth. i just had a 6 rib roast and would love to do it one day with a proper crown roast, it would be impressive for company and delicious! i did cook it the same, but just laid the roast over the top of the stuffing, turned out magnificent, we couldn't stop eating it! What a treat!! Thanks Bergy for one I can't wait to try again with apple juice. A 5 atar all the way!

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
