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

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.
