The Instacart guide to pancetta
Pancetta is cured pork belly and is often referred to as Italian bacon. It's unsmoked and cured in a variety of spices along with salt and pepper. After it's cured, pancetta is dried for a few months. Stores sell pancetta raw, and depending on how long it was cured, it needs to be cooked.
In the United States, you'll most likely find pancetta in two forms:
- Arrotolata. This pancetta is rolled with the fat and muscle spiraling around each other. It's cut into paper-thin slices and used in a variety of dishes.
- Tesa. Tesa pancetta comes in a slab similar to American bacon, but with the fat mostly on one side. When you buy it this way, chop it into cubes or dice before adding it to a dish. You might also find this type of pancetta already chopped into cubes, so it's ready to use when you get it home.
Pancetta's flavors are similar to bacon, but it doesn't have the smokiness you find in most bacon. Since it's not smoky, the flavor is not as overpowering, and it works well in a wide variety of dishes.
Use Instacart to find pancetta in both forms. You can get it delivered the same day, so you can add it to the dinner menu!
