Porchetta Thermomix Skinnymixers

Sharing is caring!

Don’t get me wrong, the Porchetta from SkinnyEntertaining makes a delicious and impressive Roast dinner when feeding a crowd.

But I think my favourite part is having the leftovers cold in sandwiches for lunch the next day 😇 We also have tips for the perfect crackling x

How to Roll Porchetta:

  • Butterfly your rind on pork belly, starting from the centre and moving outwards to create one long piece of pork belly.
  • Evenly spread your stuffing mixture over the flattened out pork belly.
  • Roll your pork belly up tightly from one side to the other, you may find you have an overlap of rind – its best to cut this piece of rind off so that you dont have chewy rind in the middle of your Porchetta that wont crackle.
  • Your Porchetta is now ready to tie.

How to tie Butcher’s String:

  • Take the meat that you want to tie and have thick butchers string on hand. You want to avoid thin string which will snap easily.
  • Tie your string around one end of your meat and holding the string in your hand, twist it twice to create a loop, then pass it over your meat. Pull the string left and right to tighten it.
  • Repeat this in 1 inch intervals until you reach the other end.Flip your meat over and measure out a double length of the string and cut it off the roll.
  • Take the end of the string and feed it through each loop, under over.
  • When you reach the end, flip your meat back over and tie it off, At this point you can neaten up your loops so they are even.
