Porchetta has become a Thanksgiving favorite for many. And if you are looking for ways to make it after the holiday, you might be wondering what is the best way to store the porchetta after cooking it.
You can either wrap up individual porchettas or place them in a casserole dish with some of the cooking liquid and put them into an oven to keep warm. If you don’t want to heat them up, then I would suggest just putting them in a sealed container and putting it in the fridge overnight to cool down.

The cooking time for porchetta varies depending on the size of the roast, but it typically takes two hours per pound at a low setting. For example, an eight-pound roast will take 12 hours to cook in the slow cooker. Porchetta can also be cooked in an oven at 325°F for an hour per pound.
