1 pork tenderloin, trimmed

3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (1 1/4 to 1 1/3 pounds)

EVOO, for drizzling

Montreal Grill Steak Seasoning

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup drained giardiniera

Four 10-to-12-inch white Italian sub rolls

Sliced provolone

Chopped romaine lettuce

Sliced tomato

Thinly sliced red onion

Hoagie Dressing, recipe follows

Hoagie Dressing:

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme

1 rounded teaspoon superfine sugar

1 large clove garlic, grated

1 shallot, minced or 3 tablespoons grated red onion

1/2 small Fresno chile pepper, finely chopped

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1/2 cup EVOO

1 rounded tablespoon Dijon mustard

Salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Drizzle the pork tenderloin and the chicken breasts with EVOO and sprinkle with the seasoning blend, salt and pepper. Place the pork on a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 145 to 155 degrees F, about 15 more minutes (do not open the oven while it's cooking). Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, if desired. Then very thinly slice on an angle.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, flipping occasionally, until firm but not tight and the juices run clear, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, if desired. Then thinly slice on an angle.
  4. Pulse the giardiniera in a food processor until finely chopped.
  5. Layer the chicken and pork on the rolls and top with the cheese, lettuce, tomato and red onion. Scatter the giardiniera relish over the top, then drizzle with the hoagie dressing.

Hoagie Dressing:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the vinegar, herbs, sugar, garlic, shallot, chile pepper and lemon juice. Whisk in the EVOO in a slow stream. Add the mustard and season with salt and pepper, then whisk until emulsified.
