Recipe Ingredients for Cheddar-Smothered Pork & Applesauce Sammies with Tangy, Sweet Apple-Dressed Greens

1 lb. Pork
2 tablespoons butter
3 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and chunked
2 tsp. thyme
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons cider vinegar, divided
4 English muffins, split
1/2 pound aged white cheddar cheese, sliced
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
2 cups lettuce

Recipe Directions for Cheddar-Smothered Pork & Applesauce Sammies with Tangy, Sweet Apple-Dressed Greens

  1. Thickly slice the leftover roast pork tenderloins on a slight angle and then into chunks. Reserve.

  2. Heat a medium-size skillet over medium-heat with the butter. Once butter melts, add the sliced apples, thyme, brown sugar and cider vinegar. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes.

  3. Add the chunked pork and toss to combine to heat up pork up slightly, a minute or two. While the apples are cooking toast up the English muffins until they are golden, remove from the toaster and spread lightly with butter.

  4. o assemble sandwiches, divide the sliced pork between the 8 toasted muffins. Top each one with some of the apple mixture, then top that with a slice of the cheddar cheese. Transfer to the oven or broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

  5. While the cheese is melting, combine the remaining cider vinegar with the honey in the bottom of a salad bowl. Add EVOO in a slow steady stream, whisking to combine. Season with some salt and pepper then add the watercress and toss to coat.

  6. Serve the sammies with the sweet apple dressed greens alongside.
