Porchetta is a traditional Italian dish that is made from a deboned pork that is roasted slowly. In some regions, the pork is stuffed with a variety herbs, and possibly liver, and even pigs chopped entrails and lard. If the pork is stuffed the mixture is based on what is available locally.
Porchetta was introduced to the United States by Italian immigrants. It was often referred to as Italian pulled pork, roast pork, or Italian roast pork. Making a sandwich with the roasted pork, greens, and cheese is a favorite way to eat porchetta.
I decided to stuff the porchetta. After researching all the commonly used ingredients I came up with my own stuffing. One of my selections might be a surprise.
