Ever since I made this Filipino lechon liempo with pork belly, I've been looking for any excuse to get another hunk of fatty belly onto the spit. While I could have formulated a good excuse any day, I finally realized I was holding out for this, a holiday porchetta!
This porchetta gets a double dose of pork: a brined pork loin on top of pork belly that's been scored and rubbed with an aromatic mixture of spices, herbs, garlic, and lemon zest. The whole affair was rolled, tied tightly, and slowly cooked on the rotisserie until the skin blistered and crackled.
You probably don't need me to tell you how delicious this was. How can you go wrong with pork wrapped in fatty pork with crunchy skin? The impressiveness of this monster roast makes it perfect for the holiday table, but it's so good that'll you'll want to eat it all year.
