There’s nothing quite like a big roll of pork loin and belly encased in perfect salty pork crackle…
Porchetta weighs 5-6kgs, comes scored and ready to cook. We recommend using a good sea salt on the skin, massaging the salt into the scores for 30 minutes before you cook it will draw out moisture and get that skin bubbling. We cook at 230C fan forced (or flat out) for at least 40 minutes or until the crackle has really formed, then reduce to 190C and cook for a total of 30 minutes for every 1kg of meat. Make sure you rest the meat for 30 minutes afterwards, best done in the oven with the door ajar so the crackle doesn’t soften. Overcooked pork is criminal, so don’t be scared of a little pink in the middle, that’s a perfectly cooked roast.
