Double Pork Party Sliders

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4 - 8

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

4 thin pork loin chops, boneless, 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick
2 slices bacon
8 cocktail buns, OR 4 hamburger buns
2 tablespoons butter, softened
To taste, salt and black pepper
4 tablespoons steak sauce

Cooking Directions

Slice buns in half horizontally. If desired, toast or warm through. Spread cut sides of buns with butter.
 
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 1 minute or until there is enough bacon fat released to coat the bottom of the pan, stirring occasionally. Push bacon to side of the skillet and add the chops. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Cook chops for 3 to10 minutes or until lightly browned and internal temperature on a thermometer reads between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), turning once halfway through. Remove chops and bacon, draining bacon on paper towels and resting chops for a minimum of 3 minutes.
 
For cocktail buns, cut each chop in half so you have 8 pieces. Place chops in buns. Top chops with steak sauce and bacon strips. These bacon-infused sandwiches are ideal for tailgating and cocktail parties.
 
Serves 8 appetizer sandwiches or 4 main-dish sandwiches

Tasty variations:
Italian: Before cooking, dip chops in 2 large eggs, then in seasoned fine dry bread crumbs to cover (approximately 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs per chop). Cook as directed except sprinkle on 1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons of shredded Parmesan or Provolone on each chop after turning the chops. Omit the butter and steak sauce. Spread buns with 1/2 tablespoon of pre-prepared pesto; add pork and bacon, then top with roasted red pepper slices and arugula
 
Asian: Cook chops as directed. Omit butter and steak sauce. Place pork and bacon on buns and top with 1 tablespoon bottled peanut sauce. Toss 1 cup shredded cabbage with 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar; add to sandwiches atop peanut-sauced chops.

Serving Suggestions

For social gatherings, opt for the smaller cocktail-size buns available in the bakery section of grocery stores. Offer coarse-grain mustard and halved dill pickle slices for the sandwiches.
In England, bacon sandwiches—called butties— are so beloved that Prince Harry planned a late night breakfast after Prince William's wedding and served them. American bacon is thinner and fattier than English bacon. For this Americanized spin, sauté thin-cut loin chops with bacon, resulting in smoky, bacon-infused pork sandwiches.

Butcher's Tips

It’s important to note that all pork chops cook the same. The length of cooking primarily depends on the thickness of the chop. Thickness can vary from ½ to 2 inches. Whether you choose chops boneless for convenience or chops with the bone attached for their attractive appearance, the cooking time is the same. Pork chops are likely the least intimidating of all pork cuts because they are so easy to prepare.
