So, dear wife decided that we should have porchetta soon, just because it's that time of year. So about three weeks ago we stop by the local butcher to see if I can get a porchetta cut. No problem says butcher, gimme a few days notice. As we walk by the meat counter, I see a tag that says "oven ready porchetta, but it's empty. Oh well.
So today I go back to get some other stuff, and see the porchetta. Not loin & belly, but a full deboned pig all trussed and seasoned. Well, I don't need 50 lbs of porchetta so I ask if they have something smaller. No problem says butcher, we'll cut off what you want.
To make a long story short, happy me has 7.5 lbs of porchetta going in the oven.
See you later.
