Hot Pork Sandwich Dinner ! Yep! That is what I said! This is a meal that is common in the area of the country where I live. It is made with pork, beef, chicken or turkey (I love them all and they are all basically made the same way and assembled the same way). This delightful comfort food is sold in most "mom and pop" type eateries.. and it is easy to get the same results at home. This is like the SUPER Comfort Food of all Comfort Foods! ***

How To Make hot pork sandwich dinner !

  • 1
    Cook your pork roast as desired (keep in mind that this works with turkey, chicken, and beef too). Remove from roast pan. Let rest and cool.
  • Thin sliced pork roast.
    Slice the meat thin.
  • Mash Potatoes with the skin on.
    Prepare your potatoes: wash, trim, and cut up (no need to peel). Put in pan and cover with water. Boil potatoes until done. Mash the potatoes and add butter, milk and salt to you liking. Or just mash the potatoes.
  • Thinly sliced pork in the pan of gravy!  Yum!
    Put the gravy mixes, cornstarch and 1/2 cup of water in a bowl, stir well. Bring the pan drippings, spices and veggies to a boil along with the remaining water. Stir mixture in bowl, and slowly add to boiling mixture. Cook until thickened. Add desired amount of the sliced meat to the gravy. Turn off the heat and just let the meat heat through and soak in the gravy.

    Cook or heat your vegetables.
  • Three slices of bread with layers of meat and gravy... cut on the diagonal.
    To assemble the Hot Pork Sandwich Dinner: Place a slice of bread on a large dinner plate. Put some of the pork and gravy on the slice of bread. Place the second slice of bread on top of meat and gravy layer. Put more meat and gravy on top of the second slice of bread. Add the third slice of bread. Cut sandwich on a diagonal and separate the two halves to make room for the mashed potatoes.
  • Mashed potatoes placed between the two halves of the sandwich that was cut on a diagonal.  Then Gravy was poured all over everything!
    Cover the top of the cut sandwich and the mashed potatoes with meat and gravy.
  • Hot Pork Sandwich Dinner! The triple layer sandwich, mashed potatoes, gravy.... and corn!
    Add vegetable of choice (I did whole kernel corn).
