Introduction: Spicy, Zesty Italian Sub
This sandwich is the perfect balance of spicy, tangy, and savory. A flavor-packed delight.
You will need:
- Ciabatta Bread
- Provolone Cheese (2-3 slices)
- Spicy Pepperoni (3-5 slices)
- Capicola (Or other Italian meat)
- Red Wine Vinegar
- Italian Seasoning (Oregano works too)
Step 1: Gather Your Indgredients
Gather the ingredients mentioned in the supplies section of this instructable.
Step 2: Slice Your Bread
Cut your Ciabatta into two pieces so you can fill the sandwich.
Step 3: Add Your Cheese
Add the Provolone Cheese to your bread. Melting the cheese is optional. I recommend adding 2-3 slices.
Step 4: Add the Meat (Part 1)
Add your pepperoni or spicy meat. Go heavy so you can get lots of layers of meat. I recommend using 3-5 slices.
Step 5: Add Your Meat (Part 2)
Add your second meat. I chose Capicola. What you choose is up to you.
Step 6: Add Your Lettuce
Add a layer of lettuce on top of the meat. This will give the sandwich a lighter, more fresh tone. Iceberg Lettuce is preferable, but other types like Romaine will work too.
Step 7: Add Pepperoncinis
Pepperoncinis are my favorite ingredient in the sandwich. They are very bold, spicy, and crunchy. Put on a big helping, but not so much they will sog out the bread.
Step 8: Add Vinegar
A splash of Red Wine Vinegar, along with the pepperoncinis, gives this sandwich acidity that it needs.
Step 9: Add Seasoning
Add Italian Seasoning or Oregano to the top of your sandwich. Adds more Italian flavor.
Step 10: Enjoy!
