Pork Tortas (Sandwiches)

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6


Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest


1 pound pork loin center roast, boneless
2 cups refried black beans, or refried pinto beans
1/2 cup pickled jalapenos
3 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup non-fat mayonnaise
6 bolillos, sliced in half

Cooking Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Roast pork until the internal temperature as measured with an instant-read thermometer reaches 145 degrees F., about 20-30 minutes. Remove pork from the oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board and carve into very thin slices.

Use your fingers to hollow out the bottom half of the bread. Spread 1/3 cup of beans in the hollow of each half. Arrange 3 to 4 pork slices over the beans; layer on the pickled jalapeños, tomatoes and cilantro. Spread mayonnaise on the top half of the bread and place on top to make a sandwich.

Serve immediately.
Optional: Add avocado slices for additional flavor.

Make 6 sandwiches.

Serving Suggestions

Bolillos are Mexican hard rolls or breadsticks that are similar to French bread. Serve along side with Rice Con Queso and Spicy Black Beans.

About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Loin roast is sometimes confused with tenderloin. Despite the name similarity, they are not one in the same. A loin roast is typically sold in pieces weighing between 2 to 4 pounds (the tenderloin is a smaller, long cut that usually weighs about a pound). The term roast simply refers to a large cut of pork.
