Saucy Pork Sandwiches

(2 Votes)
20 Min

Regular ham sandwiches are good, but here's a way to have pork sandwiches that are a step above the rest. Yup, with the tomato sauce and bell peppers, these have got a saucy new taste you're gonna love.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless pork loin, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 sandwich buns, split

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat.

  2. Add the pork and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes or until no pink remains, stirring occasionally. With a slotted spoon, remove the meat from the skillet to the bowl of a food processor that is fitted with a cutting blade. Process until the meat is finely chopped; set aside.

  3. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and sauté the onion, green pepper, and garlic over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Add the chopped pork and the remaining ingredients.

  4. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until heated through. Serve on the sandwich buns.


This is the perfect recipe for leftover pork of any kind: pork chops, ribs, or roast. Just remove the meat from the bone, finely chop it in a food processor, and follow the directions above. You can make a whole new meal!

Ditto, I agree. Lived in NJ all my life. There should be a recipe using JERSEY TOMATOES. They're the best!!!

I have lived in NJ for 30 years and have never heard of this dish.
