Pork Cabbage Sandwiches
Several years ago my mom and I took a light cooking course at a local technical college. We both loved this recipe from the class and still make it often today. –Lisa Gross of Janesville, Wisconsin
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + marinating Cook: 15 min.
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons beer or nonalcoholic beer
- 2 tablespoons diced onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
- 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound), cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups shredded red cabbage
- 1 loaf (8 ounces) French bread, halved lengthwise
- Refrigerated butter-flavored spray
- 1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
- In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients, reserving 2 tablespoons; set aside. Pour remaining marinade in a large resealable plastic bag; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar and pepper. Add cabbage; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate.
- Hollow out 1/2 in. from top and bottom halves of bread (discard removed bread or save for another use). Spritz with butter-flavored spray. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Combine mayonnaise and reserved marinade; spread over bread.
- Drain pork; discard marinade. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook pork in batches until no longer pink. Spoon cabbage mixture onto bottom half of bread; top with pork. Replace bread top. Cut into four sandwiches.
