Miracle whip

makes them slide down easier


Yuck to Miracle Whip....    Mayo is my BPT condiment of choice. There is a difference.

    I've always liked Miracle Whip, but it sure isn't the condiment I'd put on a BPT... too sweet. After trying mustard and not finding it to my liking, I've concluded that plain ol' mayo is the only condiment that belongs on a BPT ( IMHO, of course! )

          Glad this thread popped up again.  We had our first BPT at the Hob Nob Corner in Nashville, Indiana, and while it was not gargantuan, it was a nice portion and clearly homemade, as opposed to frozen and fried.  Being newbies, we weren't sure of the condiment choice, so we put on a dab of mayo (my husband also opted for a smear of coarse ground mustard).  It was great.  Glad we didn't choose wrong; you folks seem to have validated our choice of condiment.  Also, we suspected this was pork loin and not tenderloin, and you all seem to agree that this was OK.  It was a delicious sandwish, and we're eager to sample more.

              sudie,

              They are almost always pork loin though I have had a few true tenderloins in restaurants and make my own with true tenderloin.

                Davydd:

                I'm a transplanted Iowan now living in Atlanta.  Have you ever found one in Georgia...or Alabama...or the Carolinas?

                  I haven't explored the Carolinas, Georgia or Alabama yet. We may get that way next January/February to and from Florida if plans go well.

                  In North Carolina the closest might be a pork chop sandwich but no breaded pork tenderloin has been reported by any of my emissaries and scouts amongst my RV friends.   North Carolina is odd. It is the second largest (next to Iowa) pork producing state with quite a bigger volume than Indiana, Illinois or Missouri. Yet no tenderloins. They like their BBQ pulled pork with a mustard vinegar.

                  I've mentioned this before. Places that have pork tenderloin sandwiches rarely have an internet presence so finding them that way is difficult. I thought Minneapolis/St. Paul was bereft of them when I started out but have identified 33 restaurants with them and maybe only a few could be found with an internet search. You have to just get out and search. Look for independent cafes and diners or bar/grills that have maybe just a little more than a burger menu. In the Twin Cities they are popular at bowling alleys that serve food.

                    I recently had a first rate BPT , as good as the one's at the three Nicks restaurants in Huntington and Roanoke, at Jinnys Cafe , a small plain Jane eatery, in tiny Bryant Indiana about 35 miles south of Fort Wayne or southeast of Huntington Indiana. Not a fancy place but good home style small town cooking.
                     
                    It's a huge tenderloin dipped in butter milk and seasoned cracker meal and served on a 6" bun , overlapping the bun by several inches and fried to light golden brown. Very juicy and tasty. Well worth a Roadfood stop if you are ever in the area. I had home fries with the BPT -also very good.

                      Pam's Corner Cafe.  Mooresville, Indiana
                       
                      She advertises her BPTs.  Joann and I both ordered one.  What a disappointment. 

                      Pounded too thin.  Breaded too thick.  Fried too long.
                      A recipe for disaster.
                       
                      Sapphire and Babette (yellow Lab, Bichon Frise) got the leftovers. 
                      Sorry, Pam.  Not recommended.
                       
                      If you're in the area and lusting after a quality BPT drive a few miles north to Coachman's in Plainfield (just off the I-70 exit) and enjoy a fine specimen.
                       

                      It's so difficult to not plug the locals, especially when they have such a fine product.

                        Stopped in Dunlap, Iowa, a couple weeks ago to help Larry add to his count, on how many 'Pork Tenders' were sold this year at the Dairy Sweet.

                        Sorry, my family didn't think it was necessary to take any photos of the sandwiches. But I guarantee, the next time we are passing thru there, ..., We will stop & add to the count again! They were excellent, ...

                            I would have never thought to look for breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches at BBQ places.  I was in Des Moines earlier this week and had one at a place specializing in BPT, Smitty's.  I did drive by a small town Chinese restaurant in North-West Indiana last year that had a big sign in front that said they had tenderloin sandwiches at lunch.

                              Here here. I forgot about them, oh my. Between Coachman's in Plainfield and Mayberry in Danville, a great BPT is a short, mouth-watering drive away.    Coachman's sells beer, big extra point there.

                                I'm way behind being a good 23 days into our swing out west camping trip that leaves me mostly where wifi does not exist. However, I can add the states of Wyoming, Montana and Nevada with BPTs. We mostly spend our nights in National Forests, state parks and National Parks. Right now we are in Zion NP in Utah and heading back east with a couple more weeks to go.

                                  I was able to stop at the Augusta Restaurant in Oxford, IA and tried the 2008 Iowa Pork Producers First Place BPT. I forgot the camera but I brought half of the BPT home and photographed it. Use your imagination to picture a BPT twice the size of what you see in the picture below.



                                  The crust contains panko crumbs which gave the sandwich an interesting crunchiness. The crust did not reheat well at home. The pork seemed more hand-pounded than tenderized through a machine. The meat was flavorful & thick. The BPT is served with fries or sweet potato fries and arrives with homemade mayo and cost $10.

                                    A recent trip through southeast Iowa took me to some tenderloins in hard to reach places, each had been on my list for a while.
                                     
                                    First is Butch's River Rock Cafe in Oakland Mills, an unincorporated township in Henry County. Its a five minute drive from Mt. Pleasant, next to a dam on the Skunk River. This place was formerly known as Oakland Mills Store, and would sell live bait in one room and make tenderloins in the other. The slogan on the sign, We're Here to Feed Ya, Not Fatt'n Ya Up reflects the new operators focus on "healthy" fare. The menu included such "healthy" options as bacon cheeseburger salad and chili cheese fries. They also have an Elk Burger.




                                     
                                    Second is from the Bonaparte Retreat in the historic Villages of Van Buren County. This is a former grist mill built in 1878, now the first floor is a restaurant with a tenderloin for lunch:

                                      Davydd, I tried your recipe for breaded pork tenderloins and they turned out great. Being a Floridian, transplated from Indiana in 1978 due to my son having asthma, I have longed for these for many years. Now my craving has been more than satisfied. I made extra and  I am going to freeze each breaded treasure to enjoy at our leisure. My wife, whom I attended high school in Indiana with, was also impressed. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

                                          This delectable morsel was ordered, photographed, and consumed today at The Friendly Tavern in Zionsville, IN.  Very fine example of the breed.  Yum.

                                            For us transplants from Indiana to south Florida. I think I have found a place for the breaded Tenderloin. I was told the owners are from the Chicago area.
                                            Rooster's corner on Atlantic and Rock island. Margate, Tammarac, Coral Springs area.
                                            I will be there Friday night and will update next all next week

                                                Went to Scotty's Brewhouse downtown Indy branch (One W. Virginia Ave.) today for lunch.  Had their very good BPT.  A bit steep at $10.75 with one side, but the location certainly played a part in that.  Good to get out for one after a dreary winter.

                                                    I hope these weren't all on one trip, your cardiologist will be after you!

                                                    I don't think you have hit Blackberry Inn in Elburn Illinois yet. Right on Rte. 47 straight up from I-80 or I-88. I've had the tenderloin but I prefer their reubens!

                                                      This delectable morsel was ordered, photographed, and consumed today at The Friendly Tavern in Zionsville, IN.  Very fine example of the breed.  Yum.


                                                      I say amen to the breaded tenderloin at the Friendly.  Also, I have enjoyed every meal I've had at the Friendly.  It is a great place to visit, one of those "everyone knows your name kind of place".

                                                        On the eve of the Indianapolis 500, I had my 100th different restaurant tenderloin since I started tracking in March 2005. Honors went to Dawson's on Main in my hometown of Speedway. Verdict? This is the best tenderloin I've had in the metro Indianapolis area. Service by Candice, our waitress, was outstanding. The size... was just right and not pounded too thin yet fried to perfection. The breading was excellent. The most important thing is it was the most tender piece of tenderloin I've had in Indianapolis. The tenderloin comes with a signature sauce which is a blend of mayo and BBQ sauce.
                                                        The last time I probably ate in this restaurant space was when it was not a restaurant but a drug store with a luncheon counter. That was close to 50 years ago. I had the fried pressed ham sandwich and shared a table with none other than AJ Foyt, 4 time Indy 500 winner, and AJ Watson, famed chief mechanic and race car builder, back in those informal days when people sat in available empty chairs with strangers. They were not strangers to this high school kid but I am sure I was a stranger to them. That's an event I never forgot.

                                                          Ort: What are you doing in Oqwaka? The elaphant grave is very strange as is much in Oqwaka and surroundings. Never had BPT there but much catfish fried as God intended. You ought to try Scored Carp up river At Eliza Cafe on Fridays . That's Eliza ,Illinois.

                                                            Here's your Iowa tenderloin site.

                                                            The best tenderloin I have eaten was at the St.Olaf Tap in St. Olaf, Iowa.It was large.
                                                            My friends and I take motorcycle rides and check out to see who has the best tenderloin in
                                                            Northeastern part of your state.
                                                            I live in La Crosse,Wisconsin and no way can Culver's complete with a hand cut, hand pounded
                                                            which in make in Iowa. Every year they have a new winner of the tenderloin sandwich.
