Directions See How It's Made
- Mix together flour, paprika, thyme, sage, salt and pepper. Using half of dry mixture, coat sides of pork chunks.
- Heat oil on medium high in a deep-sided pan. Brown pork chunks (2-3 min.) and then remove from pan.
- Add onion slices, apple slices, garlic and allspice berries to pan. Saute for 4-5 min., or until the onions and apples begin to soften.
- Whisk together applesauce, white wine, cider vinegar, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Add to pan. If mixture is too thick, thin with water until desired consistency (should be somewhat thick though). Bring to boil.
- Add pork chunks and remaining dry spice and flour mixture. Stir until mixed and pork is coated with sauce. Cover pan and simmer on low for 10 minute.
- Remove pork from sauce. Layer on sourdough rye slices covered thinly with mustard. Top with onion and apple slices from sauce. Form into sandwich and enjoy!
