Udi’s Sandwich Contest Entry
Udi’s Gluten-Free Foods is having a contest. The contest is to come up with a really great sandwich. I entered it, and this post is about what I made. I like my entry quite a bit, and I hope you guys will enjoy it, and head over to their website and cast a vote for me! Please?
I made a roasted pork sandwich with a pear onion relish, and swiss cheese.
First thing, I roasted a pork tenderloin. I seasoned it with salt, pepper and herbes de provence. It took about 30 minutes at 425F. Then let it rest.To make the relish finely dice a small onion, and a medium sized pear. Then sweat in a skillet until the onion softens, add a tablespoon of brown sugar. Allow the brown sugar to dissolve, and then season with 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Deglaze the pan with a 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, and reduce to a syrup.Put that aside. Once the pork has had a little time to rest slice thinly. Next spread grainy mustard on the pieces of bread. Lay the sliced pork on one side, put a spoonful of the relish, top with swiss cheese, and the next piece of bread. From there its a pretty simple operation. Treat it kind of like a grilled cheese sandwich. Butter on the outsides, and into a hot skillet. Brown the first side, and flip. Brown on the second side. If the cheese isn’t melted pop it in the oven for a minute when you flip it. When you’re done with it, it should look like this.
I hope you guys like this. I’d appreciate it if you guys voted for my entry. I’m not really sure if votes help, but I figure it can’t hurt to get votes. Thanks in advance!
