Iowa-Style Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

55

Iowa-style pork tenderloin sandwiches are AMAZING! These sinfully delicious, crunchy bits of piggy goodness were hard to resist when we went to Southeast Iowa and Northeast Missouri last week. And we ate more than we should have. Frankly, it was the perfect comfort food.

4
1 pork tenderloin (1 to 1-1/2 pound) trimmed of fat and silver skin
1 cup buttermilk
2 sleeves saltine crackers, processed to crumbs
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons Lawry's Seasoned Salt
4-8 tablespoons slivered sweet onions
16-32 oval dill pickle slices (see notes)
Mustard, to taste
Oil for deep frying (quantity varies by frying vessel)
4-8 large hamburger buns (see notes)
Butter (optional, for toasting buns)
Pre-heat enough oil for deep-frying to 350° F in either a deep fryer or a heavy pan. Cut the trimmed pork tenderloin into 4 equal-weight portions. Butterfly a portion by cutting it ¾ of the way...

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
