It’s nearly impossible to think about Philadelphia without thinking of its namesake Philly cheesesteak sandwich. But you should also know Philly’s other famous dish: the roast pork sandwich, which is a surprisingly satisfying combination of thinly-sliced roast pork shoulder, a big pile of garlicky broccoli rabe (or spinach depending on the spot), peppers, and gooey melted cheese on a hoagie roll. While there are countless locations in Philadelphia to try this hearty meal, making it at home can be a lengthy affair, as roasting a pork shoulder can take up to five hours.
