Open-Faced Porchetta Sandwich with Caramelized Apples


This apple-and-shredded-pork mixture is so colossal and tasty, it doesn't need a second slice of bread. Eat it with a fork and knife to get the flavor of each component in every bite.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 slices toasted rustic bread
  • Braised Pork Shoulder, shredded
  • Onions (reserved from Braised Pork Shoulder jus)
  • Watercress


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.

  2. Cook apples, sugar, and water, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft and sauce has caramelized, about 20 minutes.

  3. Top bread with heated pork, onions, and the apples. Sprinkle with watercress, and drizzle with caramelized sauce from apples and the heated reserved jus.

    Delicious, but VERY sweet. I would use a little less of the Caramelized Apple sauce next time.
