Monday’s Menu: Baby Porchetta with Balsamic Berries & Arugula

If you know me, you know I love Rachael Ray! From her 30 Minute Meal Days to her Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine, I follow it all! While flipping through a recent issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray I came across our Monday’s Menu Meal: Baby Porchetta with Balsamic Berries & Arugula.

6-16 Magazine

Ingredients: 

1/4 lb sliced pancetta or 6 slices of thinly sliced bacon

2 Tbsp chopped rosemary (we used fresh from our herb garden)

2-3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 1/2 tsp lemon, zested

1 tsp fennel seed

1 to 1 1/2lbs pork tenderloin

Salt & Pepper to taste

Olive Oil for drizzling

1 lemon, cut into wedges

1 cup sliced strawberries

1/2 cup blackberries

1/2 cup blueberries

1/4 cup dry red wine

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp sugar

Handful of Basil, torn

Large bunch of arugula, about 3-4 cups

4 ciabatta rolls or other crusty rolls

Steps: 

Preheat oven to 375°. Heat large skillet over medium heat. {We used our Le Creuset Pot}

On a sheet of parchment paper, arrange the bacon in a single layer, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle with rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, and fennel seed. Season the pork with salt and pepper and place on the bacon (longways). Roll the bacon up and over the pork. Using kitchen string, tie 4 or 5 knots along the pork to secure. Drizzle the wrapped pork with EVOO and add to skillet, turning until brown. {See photos from Rachael Ray magazine below}

Transfer the skillet into the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Take our and let the meat rest 10 minutes before drizzling with the juice from the lemon wedges.

Mix washed berries, wine, vintage and let sit 15 minutes. Toss with basil. Top rolls with arugula and place the berry mixture on top.

Yum-O! This was such a delicious meal y’all and fairly easy to make! Looks much more difficult than it actually was to make! Love those types of dishes.

Would love to know how it turns out for you if you give it a try! Hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are! Happy cooking!

Cheers Y’all!

    1. Hey @Kcl106-Thanks for your comment! I do love the Rachael Ray Magazine, however, if you are looking to start a subscription for one take a look at The Food Network Magazine- I find more dishes to make more often from it. Groupon has a deal for it now too: https://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-blue-dolphin-magazines-174?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=us_dt_sea_ggl_txt_ttt_sr_cbp_ch1_nbr_k*magazine%20subscription_d*RTC-Goods-Broad-kwtest_g*RTC-Goods-gg-blue-dolphin-magazines-174-Broad_m*b
