The South Philly Pork Sandwich

by jerseygirl on March 30, 2011 · 15 comments

Philadelphia is known for their cheese steaks but you can also get a mean pork sandwich too. If you go into South Philly for a pork sandwich expect it to be served with broccoli rabe. Can you tell I’m on a broccoli rabe kick? If you don’t live near Philadelphia, you can always make your own. How good does this look? If a sandwich is not your style, you can always serve it deconstructed. What do you think about this?

South Philly Pork Sandwich

A nice big hoagie/sub Roll
provolone cheese
Crockpot Porchetta
Roasted Red peppers
Sauteed Broccoli Rabe

Slice open a nice big roll and put a few slices of provolone cheese on it. Top it with the heated pork, roasted red peppers and broccoli rabe. Makes one nice big sandwich!

Hmmm I always associate pork sandwiches with the south. But they certainly don't have broccoli rabe on them there!
