ROAST PORK (CROWN or RIBS) WITH WILD RICE STUFFING
COOKBOOK: Essentials of Roasting - Williams -Sonoma
I love meat. Born in South America I was introduced to it at a very young age.
I got this recipe and I was excited! UntilI realised that to prepare a crown roast you need to make contact with your butcher some days before to order. This was not the case so I had to make a quick decision on what I was going to use. Ribs it was and it turned out delicious! I made the rice stuffing and inserted it under the rib portions. This was definitely a hit!
RECIPE: I have adjusted some of the instructions as per the way I cooked my ribs. Not hard to make and that wild rice stuffing can be used as a side serving with any other meat dish
