Fried Pork Tenderloin Sandwich
--adapted from Food.com
- 1 pork tenderloin
- 1 sleeve (or slightly less) saltine crackers, well crushed
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon chicken base (or three chicken bouillon cubes)
- canola oil for frying
- hamburger buns
- condiments of your choice (I like a little mayonnaise)
Mix the hot water and chicken base/bouillon in a medium bowl or square baking dish.
Cut the pork tenderloin into 1-inch slices.
Place one piece of pork at a time between two medium pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a meat tenderizing mallet until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
Place cracker crumbs into another flat dish or pan, like a pie plate.
Heat about 1 1/2 inches of canola oil in a frying pan over medium high heat (heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit).
Dip each piece of meat in chicken broth mixture and then lay it down in the cracker meal, coating both sides well.
Carefully place into hot oil. If you have a wide pan, you can fit 2-3 pieces of pork at a time into the pan. Turn after about 2 minutes. Fry until golden brown.
Move to a cooling rack lined with a single layer of paper towels.
Repeat with remaining pork.
Serve on hamburger buns with your choice of condiments.
Makes about 7 or 8 sandwiches.
