Ingredients

Roast Pork

  • 4 lbs pork loin roast
  • 1/4 cup brown mustard
  • 4 tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning*
  • 1 lb sliced Provolone aged or regular
  • 12 Kaiser rolls or the roll of your choice

Broccoli Rabe

  • 1 head broccoli rabe
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic diced

Roasted Red Peppers and Long hots

  • 2 large red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper to season

Make Your Own Montreal Steak Seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon granulated onion
  • 1 tablespoon crushed coriander
  • 1 tablespoon dill
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

Pork Roast

  • Coat top side of pork roast with brown or deli mustard, rub into meat.
  • Sprinkle a liberal amount of Montreal Steak Seasoning over the mustard, covering the top completely.
  • Place meat in 350 F degree oven (177 C), add a little water to the bottom of the pan and roast the pork loin for about two hours or until a meat thermometer reads 150 F (66 C) degrees. (the temp will rise 10 degrees as it sits)
  • After the Pork has cooled completely cut it into thin slices to re-heat in the au jus.
  • Add some water to all of the meat drippings and use this as your base for the pork au jus.

Broccoli Rabe

  • Wash and trim the broccoli rabe removing any bad leaves and cutting off the stems, leaving only the leaves and flowers.
  • Place the broccoli rabe into a pan with water and allow to boil until the broccoli rabe is tender. (do not use a full pot of water, use just enough to cook)
  • Drain Broccoli rabe and saute in olive oil with chopped garlic, sea salt and pepper to taste.

Roasted Red Peppers and Long Hots

  • Wash peppers, and cut down the center removing all the seed and membranes.
  • Slice the red peppers about 3/8 of an inch thick (1 cm)
  • Coat with olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper
  • Roast in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes
  • Keep the peppers separate during the process, otherwise the long hots will make everything hot!

Make Your Own Montreal Beef Seasoning

  • Combine paprika, crushed black pepper, kosher salt, granulated garlic, granulated onion, crushed coriander, dill, and crushed red pepper flakes, mix well.

Assembly

  • Reheat the sliced pork in the au jus you saved from the pan
  • place slices of roast pork on kaiser roll, add provolone, broccoli rabe and roasted red peppers.
  • serve with extra au jus and long hots!
