Roast Pork with Duck Sauce on Garlic Bread

This was the specialty of the landmark "Crossroads" Pizzeria in South Fallsburg, N.Y. It's the place where Catskill Resort workers and guests[, "up for the whole season," would go for pizza or roast pork sandwiches when they needed a break from the Jewish cooking at the Hotels. I make the garlic bread with pastrami seasoning.]

Directions

In a saute pan, melt the butter and olive oil. Add the garlic and saute until softened. Let rest for at least 15 minutes, the longer it rests, the more garlic-y it will be.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix the coriander seeds with the paprika and cumin seeds.

Paint the bread halves with the garlic mixture. Sprinkle on the spice mixture. Wrap the loaf in foil and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the foil, separate the halves, and bake for 5 more minutes until crunchy.

Cut bread into 4 portions. Shmear with Duck Sauce. Fill with the sliced Honey Roasted Loin. Eat.
