Broccoli Rabe

This falls into my More-or-Less Homemade category.

My cousin, Elizabeth (actually my cousin’s daughter, so that makes her my second cousin, I think) writes a delightful blog called Scratch.Love. All the food she prepares for her family is made from scratch and she shares her fabulous recipes and gorgeous photos in her blog (I am very envious of the photographs she takes - stunning). Anyway, a few weeks ago she wrote a post about a pork roast, broccoli rabe, roasted red pepper and provolone sandwich that looked simply devine and I have been salivating ever since. She of course, made the bread and roasted the red peppers herself....not being as industrious – but just as enthusiastic – below is my “more-or-less” homemade version of Elizabeth’s lovely and delicious sandwich.

You will need:
Roasted red peppers (in a jar)
A bunch of broccoli rabe
Two small French baguettes
Provolone cheese
Pork tenderloin left over from another meal (remember, I am trying not to be wasteful!)

Wash and trim the broccoli. Steam for 5 minutes then sauté in garlic and olive oil for another 5-8 minutes. Set aside.

Slice the pork and place in a frying pan to warm. Open the jar of red peppers and place a pepper slice on top of the warmed pork.

Top with some of the sautéed broccoli.

Shave some provolone on top and heat until melted. Transfer to the baguette.
