Porchetta BBQ: I made porchetta before I started with this blog, but I knew I had to make again and again and again. Like a Danish pork roast aka flæskesteg, the porchetta has the crackling pork skin aka flæskesvær, that makes this dish so perfect. The crispy and salty skin goes perfect with the soft juicy pork seasoned with all kinds of goodness.
If you can get hold of a meaty pork belly and make the porchetta it might be the best BBQ meal you’ve ever had. But if the pork belly is mostly fat, it won’t be that great. Well, you still have excellent cracklings.
This time I was lucky to find a nice piece of pork belly in my local Whole Foods Market. It was so meaty, with only thin lines of fat between the meat. This called for a porchetta, even though it would mean a late dinner for us.
5-6 pounds (2½-3 kg) Pork belly with skin on
½ cup (1 dl) breadcrumbs, fresh and finely chopped
1 cup chopped parsley
1 large onion, chopped
