[The following is a guest post from Edward (member since 2007) in San Diego about a great find at his local Costco: Italian Porchetta. This is something I sure haven’t seen at my Costco, but will definitely be on the lookout for.]
I just found this item at Costco in San Diego. It is Petite Porchetta. I was so impressed that Costco would have something that was made with such detail! I went to the company’s web site at www.porchettaprimata.com. I bought the product last week in San Diego. The item # is 38967, and the price is 9.59 per pound. I have never had pork that tasted this good. It is a little fatty, but I think that is the artisan nature of the item. It is also a little pricey, but since it is a reheat and serve, you don’t lose much weight when you reheat.
The instructions suggest reheating at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes, and that is what we did. We had five people eating it for dinner, and it weighed about 2.5 pounds. I was surprised that it fed everybody, but there was actually some left. It is pretty rich, so you don’t end up eating too much.
We made two Porchetta Panini’s the next day. Incredible!
