Focaccia was made to be split in two and layered with great sandwich fillings: Here, a grilled pork tenderloin joins roasted red pepper, fresh spinach and is laced with garlic mayonnaise for a two-fisted dinner sandwich.
- 1 pork tenderloin
- 1 tablespoon fresh sage
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
- 1 teaspoon fresh marjoram
- salt (to taste)
- pepper (to taste)
- 1 focaccia (9-inch-round, sliced horizontally in half)
- 6 tablespoons garlic mayonnaise (roasted)
- 4 ounces roasted red peppers, drained
- 4 ounces fresh spinach leaves
- Prepared medium-hot fire in grill. In small bowl mix together herbs, salt and pepper. Rub over tenderloin; grill tenderloin over direct heat for a total of 15-20 minutes, turning to brown evenly, to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from grill, set aside and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Spread mayonnaise on one cut side of focaccia, top with red pepper pieces. Thinly slice tenderloin and layer on top of red pepper; top with spinach leaves. Close sandwich and cut into wedges to serve.
- Serves 4.
