Ingredients

FOR THE SLAW, WHISK:

FOR THE AIOLI, COMBINE:

FOR THE PORK, HEAT:

SLICE:

Choose a loaf of bread that’s soft enough to bite into easily, and save the excess you remove — it’s perfect for use as fresh bread crumbs later.

Instructions

For the slaw, whisk together vinegar, sugar, and salt. Add carrots and cabbage; toss to coat. Let slaw stand at least 15 minutes.

For the aioli, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, and garlic.

For the pork, heat pork and barbecue sauce in a skillet over medium heat until sauce is thick, about 3 minutes.

Slice French bread in half horizontally. Remove excess bread from inside top half. Spread aioli on cut side of bottom half.

Arrange salami in a single layer over the aioli, then add pork, pickles, and ham. Top ham with slaw and cilantro. Top sandwich with hollowed-out bread half and slice into servings.

Make extra room for this oversized sandwich by removing the inside of the top half of the French loaf.

Use a fork to add the carrot slaw. You’ll leave the vinegary brine in the bowl but keep its fresh tang.
