Porketta -From Scratch

Post by QueenBea » Thu Dec 03, 2015 9:10 pm

Porketta is an Italian pork roast with a wee bit of heat from the black pepper and lovely sweet and refreshing flavors from the fennel and dill. It is actually very easy to make. It is awesome right out of the oven served warm with your favorite side or refrigerated and thinly sliced and used as lunch meat.

Grind the fennel seeds, dill weed, pepper, salt, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, lemon pepper and anise seed with a mortar and pestle; set aside.

Remove the bone, skin and thick fat from the pork roast while keeping a thin layer of fat on the roast.

Process the garlic through a garlic press and set aside.

Butterfly the roast and pound to 1 inch thick; rub the spice mixture all over both sides the roast then rub the garlic over the flattened roast.

Roll into a thick roulade and tie with butcher’s twine.
Place the roast in a roast pan, add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of pan and cover.

Image

Cook in a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 2 hours.

Slice and Enjoy!

Thx Pia. We buy a whole pig every year and I make half the pork roasts into porkettas and the other half is made into hams.
