Crispy Pork Sandwiches

This is a big sandwich. This is a really big sandwich. But it’s a really really good sandwich. It has everything going for it. Thick, crusty french bread. Cool lettuce. Creamy avocado. Sweet tomatoes and the star of the show, a succulent, crispy fried pork chop. Go a head. Make one….or 4.

I have heard that fried pork sandwiches are quite popular in other parts of the country but I can honestly say I have never tried one before I tried this recipe. I am not sure why. I am not sure why I never realized how delicious a fried pork chop would be on a sandwich. But it is delicious. And easy. I had these fried pork chop sandwiches on the table in about 15 minutes.

    Thanks for your comments everyone! I guess I’m late to the party on the whole fried pork sandwich thing. And now that I know what I’ve been missing I think I’ve got some catching up to do. I can make these a couple times a week right? :)

    Your sandwich looks and sounds delicious! As a child, I lived in Butte, Montana for a few years, which is the home of the original Pork Chop John sandwich. Many of us in Montana still refer to a pork chop sandwich as simply a “Pork Chop John”. Funny, eh?
    Thanks for your recipe!

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a fried pork chop sandwich either but now I’m wondering why! This looks so delicious!

    Love the look of your sandwich. I can feel the crispiness of the pork that I want to cook mine now. This made me hungry. =)

    Except for the fact that we ate our pork straight up instead of in a sandwich this is exactly what I made last night. It is one of my favorite (and easy) things to make. I find I can get away with 1/8 inch oil.
