    Went to college for 4 years in Philly and somehow never had a roast pork sandwich. Too busy eating cheesesteaks. A couple of years back I finall had one at DiNic's in the Reading Terminal Market and was hooked. Had to make something like this at home so I searched the Internet and came across a post from SQWIB on this forum. His smoked, pulled version of this sandwich is just what I was looking for. Made a version of it tonight for tomorrow dinner.

    Started with a loaf of ciabatta bread leftover from Easter that I had in the freezer:

    Was experimenting with a pork cushion roast the other day and made some pulled pork with SQWIB's Philly Style Rub on the PBC. Put that on the ciabatta:
    Then some broccoli rabe sautéed with garlic oil and red pepper flakes.
    Then some peppers and onions leftover from tonight's fajitas:
    Some shaved extra sharp provolone:

    Some more pics of the beast:

    Game plan is to put it in the oven tomorrow on a pan covered in foil and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes or so until heated through. Unfortunately I will only be eating a piece for dinner and not the entire thing haha. Be back tomorrow!

    Thanks so much!!  Yeah, the extra sharp provolone has a nice bite to it.  I had it vacuum packed for about 6 months so I think its even sharper than when I originally had it.

    A few more pics of tonight's dinner:

    I love the method of baking the sandwiches covered in foil. Gets eveything hot throughout without changing the texture of the bread much if at all.

    Wow, Sorry I missed this, I was doing a search looking for one of my posts and came across this gorgeous sandwich, great job.

    When I die I don't want to be buried in a coffin I want to be buried in a Ciabatta roll.

    Haha thanks for kind words and the points!  This sandwich has become one of my favorites.  I can't believe I didn't even know the glory of this sandwich for the 4 years I was at St. Joe's.  And as I mentioned before, the Philly Style rub is good on everything!!
