Porchetta – Boneless Suckling Pig
Porchetta, boned, rolled and strung. 2kg will easily serve 6 – 8 guests, and due to the way Alternative Meats have prepared them they are very simple to carve and serve.
To encourage the crackling, rub the outside of the Porchetta with oil and sprinkle generously with sea salt. We would recommend having your oven at about 220 degrees C for the first 25 – 30 minutes, so that the crackling gets a good start. An approximate cooking time would be 25 – 30 minutes for 500g, with a good 25 minutes for resting the meat once it is cooked, which helps it to relax and become easy to carve.
Traditional accompaniments for pork such as apple sauce work really well … and of course some lovely potatoes roasted in Alternative Meats award winning lovely Welsh Wagyu Fat are a must!
