Spicy sliced pork on a Kailer roll or a hamburger bun is a little messy, and very delicious. Have plenty of napkins handy.
3/4 lb pork butt, very thinly sliced
1/2 tspn jalapeno pepper, minced, seed removed
1/4 tspn cumin
3 tblspn chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 large Garlic clove, finely minced
4 tspn crushed dried oregano
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 to 6 Kaiser rolls
5 tblspn shredded Jack cheese (optional)
In a medium sized bowl, place jalapeno pepper, cumin, cilantro, garlic and oregano in vegetable oil and stir to mix. Brush mix over pork slices. Marinate at least 2 hours, turning to be sure all pork is saturated with marinade.
Stir fry pork in large pan over medium high heat, until done. Push pork to side of pan, toss onions in cook until caramelization starts, then mix with pork in pan. Turn heat off. Let sit 3 to 4 minutes then remove from pan.
Open Kaiser rolls and place under broiler to lightly toast. When toasted, make spicy pork sandwiches. Add shredded cheese (or lettuce).
Also, good with coleslaw, thinly sliced cucumbers, and sliced tomato on the side. Excellent when these top the sandwich. This calls for tall sweet iced tea.
About 4 to 6 sandwiches
