Lana found this luscious recipe on an Italian Food Blog and this is my version of the “best sandwich you might ever have!”. A traditional Porchetta Sandwich is uniquely delicious, and considered difficult to replicate at home without roasting your own pig. But, my method of oven roasting a pork butt that has been stuffed with the same ingredients used to flavor the pork of Italy is a pretty fabulous stand-in.
This recipe creates a pork sandwich very similar to an Italian Pork Panini, but with much less effort. You can ask your butcher to butterfly the pork roast for you to simplify the preparation. I use crusty ciabatta rolls but any top quality crusty roll would work well here. The pork is so flavorful that you really don’t need any other embellishment, but I like to top the pork with a pile of fried onions (and with spicy peppers packed in oil, if you like them!).
