Lean, quick-cooking pork tenderloin replaces the fatty cuts typically used for these Cuban-style sandwiches.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 12 2-inch slider or King's Hawaiian rolls
  • 3 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese, each cut into 4 triangles
  • 3/4 cup jarred roasted red bell peppers, patted dry and thinly sliced
  • 5 large romaine leaves, ribs removed, cut into 2-inch strips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place pork on a baking sheet and rub with oil, spices, salt, and pepper. Roast until internal temperature reaches 155°F on a meat thermometer, about 20 minutes; cool.

2. Stir together mustard, relish, and shallot. (You can refrigerate pork and sauce for up to 2 days.)

3. When ready to assemble sandwiches, thinly slice pork. Spread each roll with 2 teaspoons mustard mixture. Add pork, cheese, peppers, and lettuce. (Heat briefly to melt cheese, if desired.) Serve or cover and chill for up to 2 hours; bring to room temperature before serving.
