Ingredients for 4 people

  • 500 g bacon,
  • 3 red peppers,
  • extra virgin olive oil,
  • 2 teaspoons of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena I.G.P.,
  • 1 or 2 litres of water,
  • A sprig of rosemary,
  • A clove of garlic,
  • A bay leaf,
  • Salt and pepper to taste


The preparation of crispy pancetta with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

First take the bacon with the rind, then prepare the barbecue and brush the cooking grid. In this case, we recommend preferring indirect cooking : a method in which the food is placed away from the flame and the barbecue is covered with the appropriate lid.

To implement this cooking technique, light the fire only on the sides of the barbecue. Then prepare a pan with the garlic, rosemary, bay leaf and half a liter of water and place it on it. Spread the bacon on the top of the grill and lower the heat. After closing the lid, let the bacon cook for about a couple of hours.

The peppers, on the other hand, must be cooked directly: you can put them whole on the grill and check them often until the end of cooking. At this point you can compose the course of crispy pancetta with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena . To do this, you will have to cut the bacon into small pieces and turn it a little in the pan to make it crunchy. Then you can cut the peppers into pieces (slightly larger than the cubes of bacon), and then season them with oil, pepper and salt. Assort the dish with the two preparations and pour a little Balsamic Vinegar to enhance the taste.
