Pancetta, or Italian bacon, is cured with salt and other spices rather than smoked like traditional bacon. The salt-cured pork is traditionally sold in rolls instead of strips. Pancetta will add richness and flavor to a variety of dishes, without the smokiness. When frying pancetta, cut the rolls into small pieces to ensure a crispy texture. Add the cooked meat to your favorite recipes, such as pasta sauces, sandwiches, soups and omelets.
Cover the bottom of a nonstick skillet with olive oil. Heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Place the pancetta roll on a cutting board. Cut the rolled pancetta into 1-inch cubes and add them to the hot skillet.
Fry the pancetta cubes until they are brown and crispy. Drain the cooked pancetta on paper towels and serve immediately.
