This Christmas, serve guests an elegant crown roast, a statement dish that always impresses.
A crown roast comes from the rib-chop section of a rack of pork. A good butcher can prepare a crown roast for you in advance, but for skilled cooks, here's how to assemble it at home. First, ask your butcher to remove the chine and feather bones from the rack, which should come in two sections.
With the boning knife, french the bones: Between the incisions and the ends of the bones, cut the rest of the meat away, leaving 1 1/2 to 2 inches of the bones exposed.
Now that you've mastered this complex technique, it's time to get our crown roast recipe and start cooking!
