Here is a tasty sandwich that gives you the flavors of fajitas without as much chopping and slicing. The recipe came from the Pillsbury booklet from June 2003 entitled "Picnics & Potlucks". I changed the recipe ever so slightly by using fajita seasoning in place of taco seasoning and regular burger buns instead of hard rolls.
Fajita Pork Sandwiches
2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix (I used fajita seasoning mix)
4 thin boneless pork loin chops
1 medium bell pepper, cut into bite-sized strips
1 small onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
4 hard rolls (I used burger buns)
Optional: lettuce, tomato slices, sour cream and/or Ranch dressing
Sprinkle pork loin chops on both sides with seasoning mix. Set chops aside.
Heat grill, place bell peppers and onion on 18-inch-long piece of heavy-duty foil. Drizzle vegetables with olive oil. Wrap packet securely with double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
When ready to grill, place vegetable packet on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 5 minutes; turn packet. Place chops on grill. Cook 7 to 10 minutes or until pork is no longer pink in center, turning once.
Place 1 chop on bottom half of each roll. Open vegetable packet carefully to allow steam to escape. Top each chop with 1 slice of cheese and some of the vegetables. Add additional toppings as desired, then cover with top half of rolls.
Makes 4 sandwiches.
