Italy Meets France With This Tuscan Pork Roast-Stuffed Baguette

What's better than a French baguette, you might ask? Why, a French baguette stuffed with a perfectly seasoned Tuscan pork roast of course! You'll love the culinary magic that combines French and Italian specialities in a medley that will melt in your mouth. You can already imagine yourself enjoying this under the Tuscan sun...

You'll need:

For the pork version:

  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 3 tbsp rosemary
  • 3 tbsp sage
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp mustard

For the beef version:

  • 1 oz bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 14 oz ground beef
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 tbsp BBQ sauce

You'll also need:

  • 1 baguette
  • oil for cooking
  • cooking twine

Here's how:

1. Cut the baguette in half lengthwise and hollow out both halves.

2. Heat some oil in a pan and cook the pork tenderloin all the way through.

3. While the pork tenderloin cools, chop up the rosemary and sage on a large cutting board, add the salt, pepper, and minced garlic, and mix everything together. Evenly spread the mixture over the end of the cutting board so it is approximately the same width as the pork tenderloin.

4. Brush the pork fillet with mustard and roll it through the herb mixture until it is completely coated.

5. Place the seasoned pork tenderloin in the hollowed-out portion of one of the baguette halves.

6. For the beef version, chop up the bacon and cook it in some oil together with the diced onion and ground beef. Season with salt and pepper and add the BBQ sauce for a smoky flavor.

7. Spoon the BBQ beef mixture into the other baguette half.

8. Secure the stuffed baguettes with cooking twine.

9. Bake at 325°F for 15 minutes.
