It’s back!!!!! I have been asked over and over again for this recipe! This recipe takes me back to my Drive-Inn days. I worked at a family owned restaurant growing up and we made these amazing homemade tenderloins, breaded and grilled.
Today, I am sharing with you the marinated grilled recipe.
We first cut a whole tenderloin into 3/4 – 1 inch thick chops. Then, we ran them through a tenderizer. I realize not many of us have access to a meat tenderizer, but I just use my mallet now. Anything that will flatten out the tenderloin will do. After you flatten the chops to 1/4 inch thickness mix all the marinade ingredients and soak the loin in the marinade for up to 1 week.
Let them marinate for at least 24 hours before grilling.
In the meantime, you will want to mix room temp butter, Country Blend Seasoning ( a family seasoning my grandma made and can purchase at local stores or by calling the number below), and honey together. Spread this mixture on a bun and toast on a grill. You can also add this butter mixture atop the tenderloin during and after grilling. Add your favorite toppings and Enjoy 🙂
- Pork Tenderloin cut into about ½- 1 inch slices
- Teryaki Sauce
- Country Blend Seasoning (local seasoning sold only in Iowa stores but can order by phone at (712)464-3661)
- Hoagie Rolls
- tomato, lettuce, onion, mustard, ketchup
- Slice your pork tenderloin to about ½-1 inch slices- or better yet have your butcher do this for you 🙂
- Next, get out your meat mallot and start tenderizing each piece of pork until about ¼ to ½ inch thin.
- Mix equal parts
Teryakisauce with equal parts water
- Next, add in enough Country Blend Seasoning to taste- this usually requires probably at least 1 full bottle.
- Add in tenderized pieces of pork and let marinate for the day, or better yet a few days!
- To prepare fire up that grill and get them a cooking!
- In the meantime, mix up your softened butter with a little honey and more Country Blend.
- Next slice your hoagie buns if they aren't already
- Slather with the butter mixture and place on a skillet to toast the inside of the bun--(are you guys excited yet???)
- Last, assemble your sandwich with all your desired fixings on your toasty bun 🙂
