"I thoroughly enjoyed this pork. It was tender and flavorful, not to mention easy. It was perfect with mayo and lettuce on a bun."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2013

"This is a great example of what cajun pork should taste like, and even better because it comes in sandwich form. I added a bit more garlic due to personal taste preferences and it was great. http://www.printablecouponsanddeals.com has tons of great coupons. You might wanna check there before buying the ingredients for this recipe."
