Pork Loin Sandwich Meat

"I love pork loin. I love sandwiches. I will occasionally roast some pork loin for use in sandwiches during the week. This recipe has a bit of savory, a bit of sweet, and a whole lot of flavor!"

Ready In:
7hrs 10mins
12 servings of sandwich meat




  • Heat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • On a large sheet of aluminum foil, shiny side up, place the pork loin. Rub it with the canola oil and crimp the sides to make a bowl all around it making certain to leave enough foil to close over the roast.
  • Pour the water into the aluminum foil pouch.
  • Rub the honey and mustard over the top of the pork. Add the minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the diced tomatoes over the top.
  • Seal the aluminum foil pouch around the roast and place it on a roasting sheet or in a pan to catch any juices that might escape. Place it in the oven and roast it for 6 hours.
  • Remove the pork from the foil pouch, saving the juices and tomato bits in another dish, and cool the meat to room temperature. NOTE: The finished pork will not have much color as it was not seared or browned before the long, slow cooking process.
  • In a skillet, cook the juices and tomatoes over a medium heat until reduced to a glaze. Pour this glaze over the pork roast and place in the refrigerator.
  • Shred or slice the pork into very small pieces for use on sandwiches, in omelets, or other applications.

A cooking enthusiast since a young age, I worked for several restaurants to get myself through college. After graduating with a degree in History (Ancient Civilizations), though, I ended up going to work in the Internet and Journalism worlds. During this time, I kept experimenting. I confess I do have diagnosed depression and anxiety, so my enthusiasm for cooking has flagged in recent years. It's difficult, at times, to find energy or drive. But every now and then I'll find something new to create and upload it, here. Thanks for following me and hanging in there during this relative slow period in my life.
