Porchetta – ToTry

Typically, a pork shoulder is butterflied, the seasoning is spread over the meat, and it’s then rolled up like a jelly roll and tied. The base seasoning ingredients are salt, pepper, fennel, and garlic. Beyond that, your imagine takes over. One pretty popular seasoning mix that I’ve had in the past is as follows.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon anise seeds
  • 1 bay leaves, finely crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 3/4 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4-1/2 tablespoon crushed hot pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 -8 cloves garlic, chopped
