More on Pork Prices
« Reply #-1 on: October 08, 2017, 05:00:18 AM »
Another good bargain on pork for many months now are the whole and half pork loins. I have seen them priced from a low of $1.37 a pound, and I can always get them from under $2.00 a pound and I feel this is still a bargain. I just picked up a little over 22 pounds this week from Meijers for $1.39 a pound and had all of them sliced at (3 slices per pound) and then run thru their cuber. Most stores will do this for no additional charge. I will use this meat for my breaded and grilled tenderloin sandwiches.



I usually freeze most of the meat for future use.



This is a simple breaded loin sandwich that has been thru a cuber.



This is what I call a Tavern Tenderloin and this is done by placing a half pound slice of the meat into a 1-1/2 gallon zip lock bag and pounding it out to a larger size.

Along with sandwiches, this meat can be used for many other treats. I see where Pam is making Canadian bacon out of some of this meat. I like to brine it with many different brines as the meat flavors up nice and can be used straight up fried, smoked, grilled, and it is all good. I string two of the loins together and put them on a rotisserie for a great treat. They make nice roasts as well. There are just a lot of uses for this less expensive piece of meat.

Dave,
I fell in love with tenderloin sandwiches when I went to school in Iowa.  Yours has the right amount of overhang for a sandwich!!

Mr Spuds, the thickness of the slices would depend on what I want to use it for...For tenderloin sandwiches, I would have it sliced from about 1-1/2" thick to about 3-4" thick for a big tavern tenderloin. I usually just ask them to slice them at about 3 pieces per pound and let them make the cuts to suit this request. 3 per pound will make a nice 5oz loin for sandwiches.

Now that is the way a sandwich should look.  Reminds me of days going by with "Blue Plate Specials".
