While I was checking out some harness racing in history Corydon, Indiana — the state’s first capital, an Ohio River Scenic Byway town — I tried an unexpected taste treat! The Hoosier State is known for what they call a “Pork Tenderloin sandwich“. I know, it doesn’t sound like much. I don’t order pork tenderloin in restaurants, myself. But I was open to trying a local delicacy. I plunked my money down at a stand named “Big Tenderloin”.
OMG! Wiki describes the pork tenderloin sandwich as a sort of wiener schnitzel, but I like it much better! This particular one was huge, overtaking the hamburger bun by a ratio of at least three. It was deep fried — schnitzel is pan fried — and fatty/juicy like a seared pork belly. You can put a number of fixin’s on your sandwich, but you might want to start with just a dab of mustard, with a bit of sharpness to complement some really good, really rich Indiana pork.
