A chance comment on a Pot Roast recipe by "Deneece" about how it made her think of her favorite meat, reminded me of my youth. Gran used to buy a pre-spiced, ready to roast Italian Porketta from the Italian Deli across the street. It was a traditional holiday roast. I looked around and found one I thought I could manage and that recipe is what follows. It was easy and close to what I remember.
My mouth was watering all day smelling the aroma of all the different herbs and spices as this dish cooked in the crock pot. I couldn't wait to taste my first bite... and I wasn't disappointed! It is so tender and juicy. Give Dutch's Porketta a try for your next dinner!
