Midwestern Pork Tenderloin Sandwich
"The 'tender' in the name of this sandwich refers to the ease with which you can sink your teeth into it. The cut of pork is actually boneless loin, 'tenderized' with a meat mallet. Serve these monster sandwiches with sliced tomato, sweet onion and lettuce." — National Pork Board

BREADED PORK TENDERLOIN Cedar Rapids, Iowa Known as a BPT, this breaded pork tenderloin sandwich is found at lunch counters throughout Iowa and Indiana. And it usually goes something like this: soft hamburger bun, onion, pickles and mustard (if you’re in Iowa) or lettuce, tomato, and mayo (if you’re in Indiana). The one part that everyone can agree on is the giant, crispy disk of fried meat, pounded out so thin that it’s stretched to about four times the size of the roll.
