What is a Porchetta Sandwich

A classic Italian Porchetta Roast consists of the belly and loin of pork that is slowly roasted over an open pit. In some places in Italy it can also mean larger cuts of pork.

The leftovers are often used sliced and placed onto Italian style bread with various toppings. The most common is a salsa verde. In our case, we’re changing things up with a jalapeño chimichurri. This porchetta sandwich contains a ton of additional flavor to the more common pork belly and pork loin style Porchetta.

Best Bread for Porchetta Sandwich

Lean toward an Italian influenced bread for a porchetta sandwich. If none available, consider any bread that has a soft interior and a slighlty crusted exterior.

  • Ciabatta Loaf or Squares (Preferred)
  • Foccacia

Chef’s Tip – When making these for a crowd, slice the bread in half and place under a broiler for a couple minutes. This toasts the bread at the same time.

  • Pickled red onions
  • Hot peppers (we love these ones, and this is *no* a paid endorsement)
  • Chimichurri Sauce
  • Aioli
  • Sriracha Mayo
