What is Cif & Ciaf?

Cif & Ciaf is an Abruzzese recipe that was traditionally made with parts of the pig that were not used to make sausages and salami. The name originates from the sound that the meat makes when it is turned in the pan. It can be enjoyed simply with bread (lesca onda, in abruzzese dialect), or it can accompany the cooking of pork ribs.

How to cook Cif & Ciaf

Fry slightly the garlic cloves with the olive oil, then put a handful of rosemary and 4-5 bay leaves in the same frying pan.

Cut all the pancetta into strips, removing the rind and visibly harder parts.

Repeat the same operation with guanciale.

Cook for about ten minutes, adjusting with a pinch of flavored salt.

While you wait for it to finish cooking, cut some red peppers and remove the seeds.

Serve hot on slices of bread adding the chopped red pepper.

Enjoy your Cif & Ciaf!
