  • If you prefer a more intense flavor, marinate the pork belly with the seasoning mixture overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the porchetta is cooked to the correct internal temperature.
  • Leftover porchetta can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftover porchetta can be used in sandwiches or salads.
  • To reheat, place the porchetta slices in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Serve the porchetta with roasted vegetables and a side of creamy mashed potatoes for a complete meal.
