Sorry I am a day late for my usual Food Friday!! I had a very early trip for a medical appointment yesterday and it really through the day off schedule. Anyway, this recipe is worth the wait!
Tom has always been a BIG FAN of pork sandwiches - either pork tenderloin or pork belly! I am a big fan of pork tenderloin, so that is the piece of pork I have chosen to use for this recipe of Tom’s. He, of course, prefers pork belly! Both are very tasty pieces of pork and both are very reasonably priced! (We have even purchased pork tenderloins from Vons for $5.59 for 24 ounces.)
And again, as with many of the recipes I have shared with you previously, this sandwich is so good that it can be eaten as a lunch dish, dinner dish or even as a snack!! It is loaded with protein because of the meat and cheese.
Like I’ve said before - try it, enjoy it and share it with your family and friends!!
