Pancetta is a type of salumi or cured pork product. Like many other Italian cured meats, it is allowed to age rather than to be cooked directly or indirectly over heat. It is salt-cured meaning that the meat is treated with a liberal amount of sea salt, spices, and seasonings for curing, making it safe to eat. It is a salumi cut from the pork belly, a notoriously flavourful and fatty portion of meat, similar to bacon but never smoked.
