Mike Ditka's Tailgate Pork Sandwich

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Chef Tom Kenny of Mike Ditka's Restaurant in Chicago is the creator of this delicious marinade and Orange Aioli. I confess I've left the pork in the marinade for up to a couple of days and I think it tastes even better. And the Orange Aioli is to die for and in fact tastes good as a chicken sandwich dressing. All in all, it's a great sandwich and very easy! Prep time includes marinating the pork.

The pork & aioli were delicious. You could really taste the marinade. I didn't make the sandwiches though. Served it sliced with rice & broccoli. I used sirachi sauce in place of the tabasco since that is what I had. Looking forward to trying it as a sandwich.

  2. Remove pork from marinade and grill over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
  3. Toast kaiser rolls on the grill.
  4. Slice cooked tenderloins for sandwiches.
  5. Spread Orange Aioli on insides of rolls, layer pork onto the rolls, then the tomato, lettuce and onion.
