Sandwich Essentials: Sliced Pork & Egg Sandwich

Andy Anderson !


I came up with this idea, while I was staring at a loaf of Pullman bread I had just baked, and wondering what to do with it.

I thought about beef, chicken, and finally settled on thinly-sliced, oven-baked pork tenderloin. Then, besides a “kicked up” mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomatoes, I threw a sunny-side-up egg on top for good measure.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sandwich Essentials: Sliced Pork & Egg Sandwich


  2. Chef’s Note: The tenderloin will give you enough pork to make 4 or 5 good-sized sandwiches. However, the recipe ingredients in the Sandwich Assembly area are what you will need for one sandwich.
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  5. Take a fork, and poke a bunch of holes in the tenderloin, then rub on the grapeseed oil, and sprinkle with the spices.
  6. Tightly wrap with cling film, and place in the fridge for about two hours.
  7. Chef's Note: Remove from the fridge, and let stand on your kitchen counter for 30 minutes, but no more than 1 hour.
  8. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
  9. Place the grapeseed oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, and sear the tenderloin on all sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  10. Place the skillet with tenderloin into the preheated oven, and bake until the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches140f (60c), about 12 – 15 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven, and allow to rest for 5 – 7 minutes.
  12. Use a sharp knife, and slice the tenderloin as thin as you can.
  14. Lightly toast the bread, and then place 1 tablespoon of kicked up mayo, on one side of each piece.
  15. Lay some lettuce and tomato slices on one piece of bread.
  16. Add a generous portion of thinly-sliced pork.
  17. Chef’s Note: You might want to add a sprinkle of salt and/or pepper.
  18. Add the sunny-side-up egg.
  19. Chef's Note: Add the top piece of bread (mayo side down).
  21. Place on the serving plate, and slice in half. It’s messy, but it sure is yummy. Enjoy.
  22. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
