The Roasted Porchetta is a cooked salami that is rooted in the Tuscan and Italian traditions, and probably, it’s one of the oldest product made from the pork. It looks like a large roast, when sliced, you can smell from a distance the aroma of spices and roasted meats.
The Roasted Porchetta is produced from the de-boned pork loin, a belly pork with rind and a small percentage of chopped liver. The pork loin and the liver are put in the middle and the belly pork is wrapped around, a mix of spices based on garlic, pepper, rosemary and salt are added; once tied all together is ready to be cooked.
Through a correct baking, the Roast Porchetta acquires a fragrance and a unique flavour, crunchiness and an exceptional taste.
The decision to compose the Porchetta with pork loin, liver and belly, instead of using the stub of whole pig is due to the fact that we prefer to obtain a product with medium dimensions, which is easier to use and guarantees to the custumers the uniformity of the product, in this way, the each slice will be well-balanced with the proportional quantities of fat, lean and succulent pieces of liver- what was impossible if we used the entire stub of the pig.
The Roasted Porchetta is great for starters, finely sliced and served with focaccia bread or hot bruschetta, in alternative served cold with seasoned sausages. It is an excellent main course when served hot with a side of baked potatoes with rosemary. But above all, it is excellent for stuffing sandwiches or focaccia bread, according to the Tuscan tradition of street “porchettari”, porchetta sellers with vans or truck well-equipped as real restaurants.
Pork with rind, salt, pepper, garlic.
