Smoky Pork, FTW

Pork tenderloin is a fantastic choice for sandwiches. It’s cheaper per pound than your average deli meat, cooks up in a jiffy as roasts go, adapts itself beautifully to a huge range of flavors, and tastes great cold. And because you’re cooking it yourself, you can control the flavors and the amount of salt. It’s a win-win-win-win-win sandwich filling, and this is the perfect recipe to start playing with it.

A Good Soggy Sandwich

Recipes

Pan Bagnat means “bathed bread,” and it refers to the fact that this sandwich is designed to soak up all of the oily goodness of the dressing. It doesn’t get soggy from too much liquid, though: the idea is to use just the right amount of liquid and press the sandwich overnight for a tender, moist culinary experience that invalidates mayo’s raison d’ĂȘtre. Because it’s intended to sit for a long span of time, it’s the perfect sandwich to include in any lunchbox. And if you swap the tuna with a vegetarian option like mashed chickpeas, you don’t need to be as concerned about food safety on a warmer day.

Salads can be a great cooler option for roadtrips because they need no heat to be eaten. The trick is to avoid items that are riskier in warming coolers (like cream dressing, cheeses, eggs, or meats) and to pack them in individual containers, layered with the moistest ingredients on the bottom. This salad is a perfect recipe to layer into jars for on-the-road, better-for-you eating. Pack the roasted chickpeas separately for maximum crunch.
