    PrimQuilter's Note:

    I love pork tenderloin sandwiches and haven't been able to find a good one since I moved away from MO. I found this recipe in a book by Jane and Michael Stern, who ate at Nicks Kitchen in Huntington, Indiana. I don't know whether this recipe is the Sterns' or the restaurant. Either way, it sounds like a keeper! Time allowed doesn't include the 12-16 hours of soaking.

      OH MY, this was good!!! I have to come clean though - when I read the instructions, I interpreted that I was to use 4-inch slices of pork tenderloin but I think it was supposed to mean 4 1-inch slices! I used a large tenderloin to make my giant cutlets. LOL! Not to worry, I cut them when I was done cooking them and I have enough left for another round of sandwiches. This recipe is really delicious and great with dill pickles and a spicy Dijon. YUM! Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks PrimQuilter! :)
