What to do with all that leftover bbq pork loin Bruce bought on sale at Ralphs? I knew what he was going to suggest before he even thought about it: bbq pork sandwiches. Ever since I made the Steak and Roquefort Sandwiches, he’s been on a sandwich kick–he’s the kind of person who, when he finds something good to eat, wants it overandoverandover until we (read, Emma and I) want to kill ourselves if we have to have one more bite. He doesn’t discriminate: It happened with the burger at Spago (around $30) exactly like it happened with the burger at The Counter (around $7); it might be Our #1 Favorite Chocolate Cake…or a Krispy Kreme. He’s a high/low guy when it comes to food…just slightly obsessive as in…if the lunch is bad, the day is shot.
Back to the bbq pork. I chopped it all up, dumped it in a pan slathered with Bruce’s Secret BBQ Sauce, and slow cooked it for a while adding more Sauce when needed. When we were ready to eat, I cut some Ciabatta into sandwich-size pieces and lightly toasted. I piled on some pork, some cole slaw made with oil and vinegar (not mayo) and some mango slices.
Bruce had the same sandwich the next day, and the day after that.
