Porchetta

August 24th, 2016

Submitted by The Italian Centre Shop

Porchetta is a classic Italian dish made from pork belly. If your kids love bacon, they will adore this. Crispy on the outside, juicy meat, inside. The Italian Centre Shop's porchetta comes pre-stuffed with top quality sausage meat–the whole roast is made from Alberta-raised pork,  free of antibiotics, hormones, lactose, sugar, and fillers. Clean, delicious meat you’ll be proud to serve the family.

Cooking Method. Simple. Place roast on a baking tray in a pre-heated oven at 350 °F.  Cook for one hour, rest for 10 minutes and serve.

Serve with a side of potato salad, steamed rapini and an Italian salsa verde of parsley, olive oil, and anchovies. Or, a simple salad of grape tomatoes and arugula.

Another easy option is to cut up root vegetables in small cubes and cook alongside the pork. Keep the pieces small, no more than half an inch thick, so they cook in the hour it takes to finish this simple dish to perfection in the oven.
