5 lbs. fresh uncured ham 1 /2 cup onion salt 1 /2 cup parsley 1 /2 cup oregano 1 /2 cup garlic powder 3 /4 to 1 tablespoon of sea salt (as preferred for taste) ➜ ½ 1 /2 to 3/4 tablespoon of cracked black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, parsley, coarse sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to make a dry rub. Rub the mixture on the ham and place in roasting pan. Pour a cup of water or stock in the bottom of the pan. Cover with tin foil. Cook ham at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until internal temperature is 140-145 degrees. Use natural juices to make an au jus for dipping. Add spices to the au jus used in rub for more depth of flavor. While the pork is resting from the oven, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in 2 cloves of chopped garlic and a dash of red pepper flakes. Cook the garlic about 2 to 3 minutes, until it just starts to turn brown but do not overcook. Add spinach, salt, pepper and nutmeg and continue to cook over medium-low until the spinach is wilted. Carve thin slices to make a sandwich on a long roll. Top pork with spinach first and sharp provolone cheese next. Place under a broiler until the cheese starts to melt and the bread gets crispy. Slice in half and serve with a side of au jus for dipping.
