Serves: 4
  • Marinade:
  • 1.5 lb Pork Tenderloin, sliced into ½" thick pieces
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp oystser sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ red onion minced
  • Pickled Vegetables:
  • ¾ lb carrots, peeled & sliced thin (julienned)
  • 3 large shallots, peeled & sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • Dressing:
  • ½ cup mayo, full fat
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon
  • Toppings:
  • English cucumber, sliced thin
  • 2 jalapeƱos, most seeds removed, and sliced thin
  • Cilantro (1/4 bunch)
  • Sriracha sauce
  • French Bread (4 6" rolls, sliced lengthwise)
  1. First prepare the marinade for the pork. In a large bowl add all of marinade ingredients except pork and mix together. Next add your pork and fold until each piece is fully covered in marinade. Let sit in fridge for as little as 3 hours or over night. Remove one hour from fridge before cooking and let sit at room temperature.
  2. Once you are ready to cook, in a large pan over medium - high heat add a layer of pork (about 4 slices) cooking for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove and cover with foil, continue until all pork is cooked.
  3. Pickled Vegetables:
  4. An hour before serving (may make this a couple of days ahead of time) in a medium pot over high heat add water, vinegars, garlic, honey and salt. Bring to a boil. Add carrots & shallots. Bring to a boil again and then turn off heat and remove. Let cool to room temperature and serve (or fridge in an airtight container).
  5. Mayo:
  6. Add all of your ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together until nice and smooth. Set aside (or place in fridge until ready to serve. You may also make this up to 2 days ahead).
  7. To assemble, using your french bread, add about 3-4 slices of pork, top with pickled vegetables and optional fresh veggie toppings. Mayo top side and devour. Or you can assemble this as a salad without the bread. Both options taste delicious!
