Beretta Pancetta is a delicious spiced Italian meat

This dry-cured pork belly can be added to pasta sauces to elevate their flavor.

Thin slices of pancetta make tasty additions to charcuterie boards.

Meaning "small stomach" in Italian, pancetta is a dry-cured meat that is similar to American bacon, but has a slightly lower fat content. This Italian meat consists of salt, spices, and pork belly. While produced in the United States, Beretta makes their pancetta in the traditional Italian style, the way their ancestors did it back in 1812. After the pork belly meat is carefully selected and prepared, this salt-cured pork product is hung to dry and rolled into a log.

This savory cut of pork can be thinly sliced and eaten as an appetizer. You can add herbs and melt cheese over the meat for a delectable toasted sandwich or grilled panini. Or you can take circular slices of pancetta and serve them on a plate with a squeeze of lemon juice, some minced garlic cloves, and a dash of freshly ground black pepper for an extra bite. Safe to eat right out of the packaging, there's really no wrong way to enjoy this high-quality pancetta.

This cured pork is often used to enhance the taste of sauces in pasta dishes and other recipes. Try heating some up for an authentic bolognese sauce. For a full sampling of Italian cuisine, enjoy pancetta with a glass of bold red wine and a selection of sharp cheeses from Italy such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano.
