Smoked beef pancetta:

Smoked beef pancetta is a tasty delicacy that adds a touch of elegance to any sandwich. It is prepared by salting and seasoning beef brisket, then slowly smoking it to develop its distinct flavors. The result is a slightly salty, juicy and slightly smoky charcuterie, which goes perfectly with different ingredients.

Ingredients :

  • Slices of artisan bread
  • Sliced ​​smoked beef pancetta
  • Hard cheese (parmesan, pecorino, etc.)
  • Fresh arugula
  • ripe tomatoes
  • Lemon and garlic mayonnaise (optional)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparing the sandwich:

    1. Start by lightly toasting the artisan bread slices to give them a crispy texture and more intense flavor.

    2. Spread a thin layer of lemon garlic mayonnaise on a slice of bread (this will add a touch of freshness and tartness, but you can also use mustard or other condiments of your choice).

    3. Arrange a few slices of smoked beef pancetta on the mayonnaise, making sure to distribute them evenly over the entire surface of the bread.

    4. Add shavings of hard cheese on the pancetta. Choose a cheese that pairs well with the smoky flavor of pancetta, such as Parmesan or Pecorino.

    5. Add a handful of fresh arugula to bring a note of freshness and crunch. The arugula will also add a slight bitterness that will perfectly balance the richness of the pancetta.

    6. Add a few slices of ripe tomatoes to bring freshness and juiciness to the sandwich. Season the tomatoes with a little salt and pepper to enhance their flavors.

    7. Lightly drizzle the sandwich with extra virgin olive oil to add a touch of sweetness and creaminess.

    8. Close the sandwich with a second slice of bread and press lightly to compress it slightly.

    9. Cut the sandwich in half or quarters for easier tasting, or leave it whole if you prefer.

    10. Serve the sandwich immediately and enjoy it. The combination of smoked beef pancetta, hard cheese, arugula and tomatoes will create a symphony of flavors in every bite.

Variations and suggestions:

  • Add slices of avocado to bring a creamy texture to the sandwich.
  • Swap the lemon garlic mayonnaise for a pesto sauce for a splash of fresh basil.
  • Experiment with other hard cheeses such as Gruyere or Manchego.
  • Lightly grill the smoked beef pancetta to give it an even crispier texture.
