As I look at it, the claws are faced directly foward

Yeah, I failed every rorshach test I took. How'd you know?

TJ, You have a very hyperactive mind. Go back to page 11 in this thread and check out those onion rings again.

      WoW!! Just found one of the better BPTS I've had in years. Being somewhat removed from the Pork Tenderloin Belt down here in Phoenix, I've been on a quest to find an above average BPTS here in the SW.

      I've been meaning to get down to a place called Midwestern Meats in Mesa (on main just east of val vista)and try their attached restaurant for some time now, and the other day I made it. Midwestern Meats is a meat market first, importing their top-quality meats from Storm Lake, Iowa (northwestern corner of the state, 17 miles from where I grew up.)

      I sat down in the restaurant and the friendly, midwestern waitress walked up, took a look at me and said, "Pork Tenderloin Sandwich?" It must have been that obvious. Anyway, great sandwich, twice the size of the bun, just the right crispiness on the outside, melt-in-your-mouth tender and juicy on the inside. A big two-thumbs up in my book!

      I took a picture of it but can't figure out how to load pics on these forums, and I consider myself pretty computer literite. anyone gie me a hand?

        Hope you can get that picture posted, so Davydd can give it a gander/evaluation.

          Looks like I have to throw down the 20 bucks to be an insider first. Guess it's worth it to get Davydd's blessing!

            desertdog,

            You don't have to be an insider to post a picture. As you can see I am not an insider. Go to Photobucket.com and start a free account there to upload your picture. Then after you upload. copy and paste the IMG string they give you in your message here. Once you upload you can edit the size of your pictures too. I usually pre-edit to 600 x 450 but I don't recommend you post anything larger than 640 x 480.

                    Gotta ask-does anyone know where I can get a decent pork tenderloin sandwich, like the ones discussed on this forum, in or around Milwaukee, Wi.??

                      Ann,

                      You can get a fairly decent pork tenderloin sandwich at a Culver's restaurant. There should be plenty of those around Milwaukee. Other than that the best places to scout them out are independent drive in restaurants, independent sports bars and local bar/grills. If you want to drive a ways, there is a restaurant in Lake Bluff, IL in the far northern Chicago suburbs called the Silo Restaurant that serves a larger than the bun breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. The only other Wisconsin one I found is way over in Hayward. I haven't done a lot of research in Wisconsin but I suspect it is somewhat like Minnesota. They are out there. You just have to hunt. In Iowa and Indiana they are everywhere. In Indiana you probably have better than a 75% chance of getting one in a restaurant that serves burgers and sandwiches. In Minneapolis/St. Paul it is probably less than a 10% chance and I would guess about the same for Milwaukee.

                        Culvers serves a slightly above average tenderloin and probably significantly better than the average once you get outside Indiana and Iowa. Too many restaurants that have them outside Indiana and Iowa have them for gratis menu fillers and they usually come from a pre-prepared food supply company ready to drop in the fryer.

                          For the hubcab sized "tenderloin" sandwich that tastes out of this world go to San Diego or Las Vegas for the best "TWISTED FARM FOOD" at Hash House A Go Go. Everything they have is eyepopping and tongue tingling great.

                            I understand that the owner/chef of HH a Go Go is originally from Indiana.

                              All this talk about the HH a go go is revving my buds. It's a five hour drive to both San Diego and Vegas...I could be either place by lunch time....That Saturday morning "Honey-Do" list may have to wait!

The menu looked good. The picture of that tenderloin looks great. Wonder if it works in practice. If so, how you gonna keep 'em down on the farm?

                                        I've been to both the Midwestern Meat Market and Iowa Cafe in Mesa AZ and didnt realize what a Pork Tenderloin Sandwich was. I thought it would be like a pork BBq , but after seeing the pictures, I'm there1 I buy all my "Special Occasion" Meats At The MW Meat Market. They have great meat, but it's gotten out of my everyday price range. Their Iowa Cut Pork Chops are great.

                                          Here is part of a review from Las Vegas Review Journal:

                                          Our other entree, however, was a completely different story. Andy's Crispy Indiana Style Hand-Hammered Pork Tenderloin ($23.95) was served on one of those great big plates, and by God, it pretty much filled it. This one was kind of all over the place -- with smoked mozzarella and spinach and portabella mushroom, and lots of caramelized onions -- but somehow it all sort of worked. This was one rich dish, however, and in lumberjack proportions, it was way more than we could even dent, with or without appetizers. Accompanied by horseradish mashed potatoes that were too timid and an entire ear of grilled corn on the cob, it was so over-the-top that when we took the leftovers home, they had to be packed in two clamshell boxes and brought out in a shopping bag.

                                            Twisted Farm Hash House A Go Go has GREAT food. We had lunch there the day we arrived in Vegas with RedPatti and Jeff. The portions are large but very, very good. None of us got a pork tenderloin....we sZave that for the Nebraska and Iowa trips. Zman had the crabcakes which he could not finish, I had a salad which I could not finish. But no complaints on the food!

                                              Thanks Gizmo, Lee,
                                              Now I've got someplace to eat when I visit San Diego.

                                                  That and the fact that it plain old doesn't sound good, carnelized onions? What's with that?

                                                    You know, these fancy restaurant owners try to take something and make it better, but it is always very difficult to mess with perfection.



                                                    I gotta pay that much money because they squirted ketchup on the plate for me (I prefer mustard), threw a few pennies worth of salad on the side and garnished it with a rosemary sprig? Oh, I see that they tossed some small kernals of corn and pieces of red bell pepper on there as a bonus.

                                                    You know what they say, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. The west coast is good at doing that type of thing, look what they did with Britney Spears.......

                                                      The next time I go to Las Vegas I will have to check out the Hash House A Go Go. I suppose if I travel that far I can afford the $23.95 pork tenderloin sandwich with special sweet ketchup drizzle all over the plate and a non-edible sprig spear. I'll bet you most people will eat that sandwich with a knife and fork at that price in San Diego.

                                                            [img][/img]Yes it's a nice Photo of the Pork Tenderloin but it not as big as the one I had at the Iowa Cafe in Mesa AZ two days ago. I have the Photo but can't upload it. The Owner Pam Ohsman made me a Breaded Pork Tenderloin that was so big, I asked her for a 2nd bun, Oh She from Cedar Rapids,Iowa and told me she found out about the Iowa Cafe when she told someone she was looking for a place like Iowa that had a Breaded Pork Tenderloin, How funny now she owns the Cafe. I asked her about she makes the Bread Pork Tenderloins and told me how they get fresh Loin in then they trim all the fat and dark meat from the loin then cut them and make them tender after that they Hand Bread them She said the best Breaded Pork Tendreloins are only made with the white meat .Yum just like back home.
