Roast Pork Sandwiches with Giardiniera

Pickled vegetables bring this Italian pork sandwich recipe to the next level. The pickling liquid from the giardiniera soaks into the bread and coats the roasted pork, adding an extra hit of flavor.

Roast Pork Sandwiches with Giardiniera
Active Time:
30 mins
Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 loaf ciabatta, preferably whole-wheat, halved and cut into 6 pieces

  • 6 slices provolone cheese

  • 1 cup prepared giardiniera


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Place pork on a baking sheet and rub with oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and pepper.

  3. Roast the pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 145°F, 25 to 30 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice.

  4. Remove some of the bread from the inside of each piece of ciabatta top. Arrange all the ciabatta pieces on a baking sheet. Divide the pork slices evenly among the sandwich bottoms; top each with a slice of provolone. Bake until the tops are lightly toasted and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide giardiniera among the sandwich bottoms and cover with the tops.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
