What a great way to use up leftover pork! I loved this sandwich - even more than I thought I would. The sauteed onions and apples were so yummy. I used a very light homemade gravy - more of a sauce - and only a little bit. Thank you! Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9

Just had to try this . . . and was very surprised on the outcome. Easy to prepare and the flavors melded together very nicely. Especially liked the thick slice of homemade dark rye with the pork and onions. DH, however, requested the apples on the side next time. Me, I thought it was very good in the sandwich.
