Fire Roasted Porchetta

This is a recipe we’ve been wanting to for a while now. This recipe is what every meal should be. Rich and succulent pork belly combine perfectly with the tender pork loin giving the dish the true taste of what pork can be.

Difficulty: 4/5

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 6.5 Hours



1/2 a pork belly

2 pork tender loins

4 teaspoons salt

4 tablespoons of garlic

2 teaspoons of black pepper

1 tablespoon of finely diced rosemary

1/2 tsp of fennel seeds

1/4 tsp of crushed red chili flakes

1/2 tsp of olive oil

butchers twine


Start by combining all spices including olive oil and mix well.IMG_7079 Next carefully slice a diamond pattern into the meat side of the pork belly (making slices 1/2 in a part and 1/4 in deep). Once done take 2/3 of the seasoning mix and gently massage into the meat side of the pork belly. IMG_7081Then place two pork tender loins in the center of the pork belly and roll up.IMG_7082 Using butchers twine truss the porchetta. (There are many videos online to help you with this step). When you are all wrapped up season the outside with the remaining mix and place your porchetta in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours covered. IMG_7085When you are ready to cook set your grill to 260f and roast for 6 hours. It’s very important to place your porchetta on a second shelf with a pan underneath to catch the drippings, this well help keep your grill clean and help prevent a grease fire during the final step. After 6 hours your porchetta should be getting some nice color and the fat should be mostly liquified.

Allow to rest for at least 15 min, slice and serve.IMG_7100 We decided to place the porchetta over some roasted vegetables, but it also makes a great sandwich using some crusty bread. Enjoy!IMG_7094
