Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 1 pork tenderloin (approximately 1/2 lb)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 teaspoons Caribbean barbecue seasoning
  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)
  • 4 ounces Black Forest or other lean deli ham
  • 4 ounces sliced muenster cheese
  • 2 dill pickles thinly sliced lengthwise
Method

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Brush tenderloin with one tablespoon of oil and coat all sides with seasoning. Grill pork until it is cooked through and browned on all sides, about 5 minutes each side. Remove, and let cool slightly, then thinly slice on the diagonal.

Half ciabatta lengthwise and spread with mayonnaise (if using) then layer with sliced pork, ham, cheese and pickle slices. Place top on sandwich and brush bread with olive oil. Press down very firmly on sandwich. Place on the grill* and weigh down with a heavy cast-iron skillet or 2 to 3 bricks wrapped in foil. Flatten the sandwich to about 1/4 its original thickness while grilling and cook until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes on each side.

*If using a double-sided sandwich maker, grill 3 to 4 minutes.
