2 tbsp. Aleppo pepper
2 tbsp. ground chili flakes
2 tbsp. fennel pollen
2 qt. white wine
2 qt. chicken stock

On a large roasting pan, butterfly pork butt, press down meat and season with all spices thoroughly. Allow seasoned pork to sit for 24 hours. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Add wine and chicken stock to the pork in the pan, cover with parchment paper and foil, and roast in the oven for approximately 3 hours, until fork tender.

8 oz. rendered fat from Fossil Farms Mangalitsa pancetta
2 cup red onion, sliced thin
8 oz. Pecorino cheese, grated

Slice and cut pancetta into half inch slices and begin to render in a sauté pan on low heat. Once pancetta is rendered and crispy, remove and set aside. Using the same sauté pan with the remaining fat, turn the heat up high until it begins to smoke lightly. Add the pulled pork and cook until caramelized. Add onion and toss until blistered, but not caramelized. Mix in the chili paste, rendered pancetta fat and crushed tomato. Slowly simmer sauce as you cook the pasta.
