Looking for a replacement for the traditional ham for your Christmas dinner? Try Crown Roast of Pork. It is an elegant entrée for your special holiday dinner.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Rub the mixture onto all of the surfaces of the pork. Place the pork in a 2-gallon ziploc bag; refrigerate at 6 to 24 hours.
An hour before cooking, remove pork from refrigerator; rinse well to remove as much of the dry rub as possible. Pat dry with paper towels. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
Pour meat juices into large skillet. Add the vinegar and crushed peppercorns, and boil until the liquid has reduced to about 2 Tablespoons, several minutes. Add the cream, and simmer for 5 minutes. Whisk in the mustard combined with water, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes more. To thicken the sauce, add beurre meunière made with one Tablespoon of softened unsalted butter and one Tablespoon of flour, and continue whisking until thickened. Yield: 2 cups.
