Roast Peppered Pork Tender Lion Sandwich
Say fast three times, I dare ya!
This is one of those sandwiches with so much versatility your going to love it! You can make a great lunch or dinner with it. It’s great for just one or feeding a crowd and the left overs can make it easy to do lunch for several days. You can make my pretzel rolls or have it on bread what ever works for you is fine by me. My primary taste testers love it what ever way I serve it and it is my youngest sons favorite. and who could blame him. I also like to make the roast and freeze it then thaw it out the night before you need it and your ready for the next day. It also make great roast for dinner served with your favorite sides (but that’s for another post).
Now here’s what you’ll need for your shopping list:
- 1 pork tenderloin 2 to 4 pounds (depending on the size crowd your feeding)
- freshly ground pepper you need a lot so i put mine in the coffee grinder or food processor 6 Tablespoons
- sea salt 2 Tablespoons or less depending on your preference
- a shallow baking dish I use a 9 x 13 glass clay baking pan but glass or metal will work just as well
This pork roast can be served warm or cold you can serve as a sandwich with spicy or coarse ground mustard. Or for dinner with mac and cheese or other side dishes.
Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees. You will need a roasting pan or baking dish. On a dinner plate sprinkle salt and pepper roll the roast in the salt and pepper and cover all sides by rolling in mixture. Place the roast in baking dish and cook for 1 1/2 hours check your temperature it should be 160 degrees or close to it. If it is not cook for further 10 minutes and check temperature adding 10 minutes to your cook time until it reaches 160. Let your roast rest for 20 minutes in the roasting pan on your cook top. Place the roast on a cutting board and thinly slice and serve on pretzel rolls or bread of your choice. Top with mustard tomato or pickle and enjoy!
