We love a good pork roast. Whenever my daughter hears the words "pork chops," her eyes brighten and she starts salivating. Luckily, I had a pork butt in the freezer. The recipe calls for a pork tenderloin, but it's close enough.This Teriyaki-Glazed Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches with Spicy Sesame Mayo is from Emeril's Kicked-Up Sandwiches: Stacked with Flavor cookbook.
The recipe called for hoagies but I made sliders instead. I didn't follow the recipe exactly (shocker), but I stuck pretty close to it. This recipe was super easy. Not too much hands on time. The oven did most of the work. Even the teriyaki glaze only took a couple of minutes to put together and heat up.
Instead of using daikon for the quick pickle, I used leftover pickled carrots from my banh mi showdown. The piece de resistance is the Spicy Sesame Mayo. It really pulled everything together: the sweet glazed pork, the sour pickles. Emeril gives a recipe to make mayo from scratch. I used jarred mayo and added the sesame oil, sriracha, and garlic to it. It was just the right amount of spicy!
I absolutely loved this recipe! My daughter doesn't like sandwiches, but she loved the pork with rice. My toddler ate his pork on the side and made a sandwich filled with brown rice. At least he ate it.
I'm adding this recipe to our repitoire. I can see its versatility. We can eat the pork roast as is, in sandwiches, or use the glaze for pork chops or chicken.
