Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season the pork with the celery seeds, salt and pepper. Let stand for 30 minutes.

  • Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and brush with oil. Grill the pork over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred all over and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 140°, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes, then slice the meat against the grain.

  • Meanwhile, brush the bread with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning, until lightly charred on both sides, about 2 minutes. Rub with the halved garlic clove.

  • In a large bowl, whisk the 1/4 cup of oil with the chile and minced garlic. Add the tomatoes and sliced celery and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Transfer the toasts to plates, top with the tomato salad and sliced pork and serve.
