Question: Has anyone got a recipe for Iowa breaded, fried pork loin sandwiches?

A semi-thin slice of pork that is breaded and fried and served as a sandwich.....looking for this recipe, do you have one?

Try these:


1 4-6" long boneless center cut loin of pork
1 cup milk
1 egg
crushed saltine crackers
lard or solid vegetable shortening

Cut the loin into slices 1" thick. Place each between 2 pieces of wax paper and "beat the hell out of it" with a meat tenderizer (flat side)until the slice is nearly paper thin.
Combine the egg and milk. Dip the pounded pieces into the milk mixture, then into the cracker crumbs (you can add ground black pepper to the crumbs if you like). Fry, one at a time, in hot fat until golden brown. Serve on a hamburger bun.

I've always made them with pork tenderloin. Cut the tenderloin in chunks and pound thin with a meat mallet. You can coat with crackers, bread crumbs, and/or panko bread crumbs. Or you could even coat them in crushed corn flakes. Good luck!
