Breaded Pork Tenderloin

  • i

I was just watching the "Brickyard 400" qualifying from Indianapolis and they had a segment on the consession stands. They showed a Pork Tenderloin sandwich and my mouth immediately started to water - now I'm dreaming of a Pork Tenderloin sandwhich. Does anyone know of a place in southern Orange County that serves pork tenderloin sandwiches?

  1. Can't help you in Orange County, but as a child, my mom often took me to Callahan's Restaurant on Wilshire in Santa Monica for breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches and chocolate malts. I'm pretty sure Callahan's is still there, but not sure if the menu is the same or not.

        but they don't still have tenderloins

    1. Funny you should mention grandmother makes these for our family in 'mega' batches. Sometimes, when I help, we make 30-40 at a time and freeze them. Everyone in the family takes a few and then, when a craving hits, heat up some oil and fry them - straight out of the freezer.
      A simple and delicious meal. I would share the recipe but my grandmother would not allow it!

        i don't care about the recipe i'd love to have a BreaBreaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich.
        i'll pay shipping and you send me a couple frozen BPT's.


      2. OK, so this is a little late...try Husky Boy drive in in Laguna Beach.

        1. Went to Husky Boy Burgers in Laguna Beach, PCH corner Beverly. They do indeed have the pork tenderloin sandwich, breaded and deep fried. Thanks for the tip! Probably the only place around LA to have this sandwich.

          1. I used to go to Steves in Torrance on Crenshaw blvd. They changed owners and dropped the tenderloin. I know of no other place as yet. Another Indiana farmer (high school buddy of mine) is "begging" me to start a restaurant with him, specializing in Indiana foods (especially "pork fritters"). Whadda ya think? Would it go good around here in Los Angeles? Let me know.

              I'm guessing "Indiana Foods" would fall fairly low on the list for most Angelenos, although I wouldn't mind a restaurant specializing in Rhode Island foods or New Mexico foods.
              I'm not sure I even want to know what a pork fritter is.

                Considering I seem to know more "Angelenos" who originate from Indiana than actually from California, this doesn't sound like a half-bad idea :)
