What are you planning for tonights dinner? The male part of this marriage is a sucker for fried food, so we have had this fabulous easy to make sandwich with crispy pork tenderloin.
We have chosen to use tenderloin as it is easy to beat flat without to much work and has a lovely mild taste. There is nothing like crispy pork tenderloin in a sandwich.
Ingredients (2 sandwiches)
1 pork tenderloin
1 tbsp. cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. onion powder
2 tbsp. flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup vegetable olie
1 Italian baguette
2 tbsp. aioli or mayo
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, sliced
4 romaine salad leaves
2 tomatoes, sliced
Sour Cream Sauce
4 tbsp. sour cream
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lime, juice and zest
Clean the meat for silver skin and connected tissue and cut it into two equally sized pieces. It is important to remove all silver skin from the meat, otherwise it might get though. Beat it flat with a meat hammer. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Turn the meat in the flour and set a side while mixing the other ingredients.
Mix together some salt and pepper, onion powder, oatmeal and bread crumbs in a mixing bowl. Now take the two pieces of beaten meat and dip into the eggs, then turn it in the bread crumb mix. Fry in 1/4 cup of olie in a sauce pan, until evenly brown and crisp, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.
When the meat is fried, cut through the Italian baguette and spread on some aioli, put on the fried tenderloin and top with sliced mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit for about 5-8 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
For the sour cream sauce toss all ingredients together in a bowl and mix well.
When the sandwich comes out of the oven, add salad, sliced tomatoes and sour cream sauce.
If you are more than two you don’t have to double the recipe, try instead to serve it with honey glazed crispy bacon brussels sprout and an ice cold beer (of cause)!
