Ginger-Soy Pork Sandwiches

Ginger-soy pork sandwiches
Anyone around here not a fan of sandwiches? I don't think I've ever met a single person who doesn't like a sandwich. How can you disagree with all the amazing factors of food - flavor, texture, mouthfeel - all rolled up into one dish? Sandwiches are vessels for delivering tastiness straight into your mouth and I love finding new combinations that pile on flavors in unique and different ways.

These ginger-soy pork tenderloin sandwiches have both an international but also familiar feeling. Since the pork is marinated in soy sauce, it has an Asian vibe but the mayo brings it back around to America. I love the way the creamy mayo plays off the super crunchy bread, peppery radish, and the spicy jalapeño slices. I keep adding this one to the weekly meal roster and it never gets old! I find something new about it to love each time I make it. Hopefully you'll fall in love with it, too! I'm thinking of trying it with another protein - maybe salmon?
