You can enjoy porchetta anywhere in Italy, particularly in Lazio. The traditional porchetta recipes can be traced back to central Umbria. The porchetta of Umbrians uses lots of Fennel, along with other herbs and fragrances, making it stand out from other Italian porchetta recipes.
The traditional way of cooking porchetta involves deboning and splitting the pork loin to have more surface area. The loin is then heavily salted and seasoned with fresh herbs, garlic, fennel, liver, and other spices. Once the porchetta is properly seasoned and stuffed, it will then be rolled up and tied so it can roast slowly in a woodfire oven or open fire.
Most butchers offer this cut using pork belly so you can enjoy porchetta at home. You can either buy the whole pork loin and butterfly it yourself or get one that’s already seasoned, rolled, and tied up.
