Fast Italian Pork Hoagies Recipe

I received this recipe from the parents of one of the preschoolers where I teach. They're pork producers. This works well as a quick lunch or pre-game meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each), cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons prepared Italian salad dressing
  • 2 hard rolls or other small sandwich rolls
  • 4 teaspoons pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions

Directions

  • 1. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. In a skillet, cook the strips over medium heat until no longer pink; set aside. Meanwhile, place open sandwich buns on a baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Top with pork strips, cheese and onions. Bake at 350° for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bun is lightly toasted. Yield: 2 servings.
