Mike Ditka's Tailgate Pork Sandwich

"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."

    Absolute winner! I have made this countless times to rave reviews. I typically add more garlic, tabasco (or whatever you prefer) and horseradish. I like to amp up the orange flavor by adding some zest. It pairs so well with the spice from both the pepper sauce and horseradish. Make sure you make the aioli the night before for the flavors to develop.

    Excellant! These are so delicious that we have served them to guests on Easter. I recommend marinating the pork close to 48 hrs, but overnight is still delicious. I also add the zest of 1 orange to the aioli. We've enjoyed these for 3 years now, can't believe I'm just now reviewing. Its one of my favorite sandwiches to eat during the summer months. ps, don't think it needs tomatoes at all.
