Philadelphia Pork Sandwiches
We went to Philadelphia for the cheesesteak. We stayed for the roast pork sandwich.
Why This Recipe Works
To re-create these famous Philly sandwiches at home, we opted for a boneless pork butt roast and braised it in chicken broth. This made tender and flavorful pork, and the juices from the pork mingled with the chicken broth during cooking to create an ultrasavory jus. Letting the roast cool and cutting it in half made it easier to slice paper-thin. We then rewarmed the pork before shingling the thin slices on warm Italian rolls with garlicky broccoli rabe and sharp provolone cheese.
