Southwestern Mini Grilled Pork Sandwiches /#BBQ Week

Hi everyone, and welcome to #BBQ WEEK! This week is dedicated to one of my favorite ways to spend summer evenings~barbecuing! But this week is not just about what's on the grill. #BBQWEEK bloggers will be sharing creative, mouthwatering dishes ranging from appetizers to desserts and everything in between! I am starting the week with a mouthwatering entree, adding a twist to a traditional picnic favorite on Wednesday, and celebrating the last day of #BBQ Week with a fun way to enjoy a campfire treat that we all love!
Today's recipe is my Southwestern Mini Grilled Pork Sandwiches! 
I hope you love them as much as I do!

Southwestern Mini Grilled Pork Sandwiches
(makes 8 sandwiches)

3 lb. Pork Loin 
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
Orange, Red, and Yellow Pepper-1 each
Onion-1 medium
Mushrooms 
Butter pats
Lettuce
Tomato slices
Avocado
Mini Buns
Corn on the cob

Other items you will need:
Aluminum Foil



I absolutely love eating pork, and it is one of my favorite meats to grill with. I purchased a 3 pound loin for this recipe. I sprinkled the pork with Southwest Chipotle Seasoning from Mrs. Dash. It has a great flavor, with no salt, and it enhances the flavor of the pork without overwhelming it.

Cook on the grill on medium heat until it reaches 145 degrees. This will take approx. 40 minutes. Turn it a few times as it is grilling. You want to make sure that the pork is completely cooked.

Once the pork is on the grill, slice the peppers, mushrooms, and onions into thin slices.

Place the veggies onto a medium sized piece of foil. Sprinkle them with the Southwest Chipotle Seasoning, and add a pat of butter. Wrap the foil around the veggies, creating a foil bundle.
I knew that not everyone that was going to join me for this BBQ liked the same veggies, so I made each bundle differently, catering to their tastes. If they don't like mushrooms for example, I added more peppers and onions and left the mushrooms out.


Place the veggie packs on the grill and let them cook while the pork is cooking. Check them after approx. 20-30 minutes by sticking a fork into the peppers. If they are soft, they are done. Keep them wrapped up and hot until serving time. I also wrapped corn on the cob in foil. Just wrap the corn with a pat of butter on it and let it cook away. Don't forget to clean it first and remove the silt.

Use a meat thermometer to insure that the pork does not over or under cook. You want the meat to reach 145 degrees so it will be safe to eat. Once it has been reached, remove the pork from the grill, and let it rest, still covered for appro. 20 minutes. This will seal in the flavor keeping the meat deliciously juicy. After the time is up, slice the pork into thin or thick pieces, depending on your preference.


Before the pork is finished grilling, put together a little veggie plate to have your lettuce, tomato and avocado ready to use. Change the condiments up, using your favorites if you so desire.

Build your sandwich. I love the mini buns, so I used those. They are cute and fun!

Bring everything together and enjoy your BBQ! Don't forget that we are celebrating BBQ all week long! Stop by on Wednesday for my recipe for Southwestern Deviled Eggs!

I hope you enjoyed my Southwestern Mini Grilled Pork Sandwiches! Keep scrolling down the page to find a printable recipe of the pork sandwich, and links to all my blogging friends who also joined in to share their #BBQWEEK  recipes. Be sure to check them out! They all look amazing!

London Broil Steak Sandwiches / #BBQWeek

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best things in life, and that definitely applies to this grilled London Broil Steak Sandwich. It is a great steak to enjoy anytime, and there is no better time than a backyard BBQ with family and friends. The best way to enjoy a London Broil Steak is to place it on a cutting board or plate after grilling it, and cut very thin slices against the grain, which results in the meat being tender and easy to eat. I have sliced this steak on an electric slicer, and it works well also.
The steak is simply seasoned with pepper and minced garlic, and tenderized with a hand tenderizer, seasoning and tenderizing both sides. I used fresh bakery sub rolls, and added mayonnaise, green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, and onion.  It's a simple sandwich with a simple seasoned and tenderized steak and simple garnishes, and it's simply sensational!

London Broil Steak
Minced Garlic
Ground Pepper
Sub Rolls
Lettuce
Mayonnaise
Onion
Tomato 

Pepper both sides of the steak, then use the back of a spoon to spread the minced garlic over both sides. I used minced garlic from Target. I have been using it for a while and really love it. Use a tenderizer on both sides of the steak.
Once your grill is hot, start cooking the steak. I cook a side for 2 minutes, then turn to the other side. Continue to time 2 minute cooking intervals, flipping the steak each time until it is cooked to your satisfaction. Once the steak is done let it sit for another 2 minutes. 
Slice the steak thin for the best flavor. 

Dress the sandwich, add the steak and enjoy!

Chipotle Chicken Sandwich / #SundaySupper

Have you ever had a great sandwich when you were dining out, and thought, "I could make this, and make it better"? That is my inspiration for this Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. I recently had a delicious sandwich at a local restaurant, and I loved it. But instead of going back to the restaurant, I decided to make it at home. It is quicker, less expensive, and simple to make! And that's what we are celebrating today for #SundaySupper~Simple Sandwich Recipes!

Chipotle Chicken Sandwich 
(printable recipe at end of post)

Chipotle Sauce
3 1/2 ounces Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
10 ounces Sour Cream
1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic
2 tablespoon Milk
2 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Sandwich
7 ounces raw chicken breast
Dry Chipotle Seasoning
1-2 teaspoon Butter
onion
4 Cheese Mix
red leaf lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise
avocado
Bakery Style Bun

Place all the sauce ingredients in to a food processor or blender. Mix until smooth. Set aside sauce.

Cut chicken breast to the desired weight. It can be smaller or larger than in the ingredient list. It depends on how much you want. I cut this one to 7 ounces because it would fill up the bun and look nice. Butterfly the chicken breast so it looks like the above picture. To butterfly the chicken, lay it flat on a cutting board. Cut away the small filet that is to the side. You can use it later. Use a sharp knife to cut through the middle of the chicken parallel with the cutting board. Don't cut all the way to the end. Stop right before the edge. Fold open the chicken.
Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the southwest seasoning. Melt butter in a medium frying pan on medium heat. Cook the chicken breast on both sides until cooked through to 165℉.
While the chicken is cooking, melt more butter in another pan. Thinly slice a couple onion slices. Separate the onions and saute them in the melted butter. Pull them off the stove when done.
As your chicken is almost done, within a few degrees, sprinkle the cheese all over the top. Cover the pan with an upside down pan, and turn off the heat. The cheese will melt and the chicken will cook to temperature.
Place mayonnaise on both sides of the bun. On the top side place avocado and onion. On the bottom side, place lettuce, chicken, chipotle sauce and tomato.

Enjoy!

Grilled Steak Sandwiches w/Foil Pack Veggies/ #Smokin'-O's / #CookoutWeek2017

You are going to love these Grilled Steak Sandwiches w/ Foil Pack Veggies for your next cookout! The tenderized London Broil steak, always my favorite, is juicy and full of flavor with an incredible smokiness from the Applewood Smokin'-O smoke rings. The vegetables are cooked separately in their own foil pack. If you haven't tried this way of grilling vegetables before, you will be amazed at how easy it is and how tender and tasty your veggies are. Plus, if you know what everyone likes, you can easily design the foil packs so everyone gets their favorite veggies!
This is my second entry in this weeks fun adventure, #CookoutWeek2017! Yesterday I posted yummy Chocolate Caramel S'mores Bars that you will want to try. They are a tasty accompaniment to these Grilled Steak Sandwiches, and there is no better way to start #CookoutWeek2017 than with a dessert!

Pizza Steak Hoagie / #SundaySupper

Today, we are celebrating pizza, and I thought I would share my very favorite pizza item, the Pizza Steak Hoagie. Growing up, the pizza steak hoagies that I loved were made with cube steak slices that were pounded down and tenderized. I thought I would change that up by using filet mignon for a taste that simply melts in your mouth. 

 

Pizza Steak Hoagie
(printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 2 Sandwiches)
1-8 ounce Filet Mignon
1/2 medium Onion
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Pizza Sauce
2 Hoagie Rolls

Trim the fat edges off of the steak.  Cut the steak across the thickness of the steak. Use a meat mallet to pound down in to thin slices. Cut off any large fat pieces you may have missed.

 Slice onion in to thin slices.
Cook the fat in a frying pan. Remove the fat pieces, but leave the juice from the fat.
In a separate pan, saute the onions in a pat of butter.
Pan fry the steaks, to medium rare, in the pan where you cooked the fat. 
Spread the pizza sauce on to the bread. Add the sauteed onions to the bottom piece and the cheese to the top piece.
Place under broiler until onions are hot and cheese is melted.
Place meat on top of onions.
Enjoy your Pizza Steak Hoagie!
