Porchetta alla Ariccia (Ariccian-style roast pork belly)


You'll need

2.2 kg piece free-range pork belly, scored in a 3cm cross-hatch pattern 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 5-6 fresh bay leaves, finely chopped 3 tsp finely chopped rosemary 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 100 ml dry white wine   Fagioli all’uccelletto 400 gm fresh borlotti beans (about 1kg unpodded; see note) 1½ tbsp olive oil 100 gm mild pancetta, finely chopped 4-5 sage leaves 1 small marjoram sprig 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped 1 small red chilli, seeds removed, thinly sliced 400 gm canned chopped tomato

Method

  • 01
  • Place pork skin-side up on a work surface, drizzle with half the olive oil, scatter with 3 tsp sea salt and massage in well. Refrigerate, uncovered, for salt to penetrate (2 hours).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to160C. Place pork skin-side down on a work surface, scatter over herbs and garlic, season to taste, roll to form a cylinder, then tie at intervals with kitchen string. Place in a deep roasting pan, drizzle with remaining oil and roast until partly cooked (35-40 minutes), then increase temperature to 180C and roast until skin begins to crisp (35-40 minutes). Add wine, increase temperature to 200C and cook until skin is crisp (35-40 minutes). Set aside to rest (30 minutes).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for fagioli all’uccelletto, cook beans in a large saucepan of simmering water over medium heat until tender (25-30 minutes), then drain (reserve 375ml liquid). Heat oil in a separate saucepan over medium heat, add pancetta, herbs, garlic and chilli and sauté until tender (5-7 minutes). Add tomato, cook until tomato starts to soften (5-7 minutes), add beans and liquid and cook until thick (10-15 minutes). Season to taste and serve hot with thickly sliced pork.
Note If fresh borlotti beans are unavailable, substitute dried beans soaked overnight in cold water. The cooking time may vary.
