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

  • 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.

  • 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.
