Give’s you a reason to travel, my friend![:)]
Hotrodder You can Freeze, your Bread Pork Tenderloin after Breading them But Let them Thaw out then Fry ,I have found if you Fry them Frozen they hold more Oil This will give you a Light Golden Brown loin.And help you not to over cook.

Culver’s is average size for a pork tenderloin sandwich. It has a larger than normal bun but it is not beaten down thin to fill a dinner plate. I would judge it to be about right for the calorie count for the average. I doubt anyone is going to go to the trouble to hire a lab to verify calories for a single restaurant proprietor like they did Culvers. Just to refresh that image. One more look…
No. My camper van is a Mercedes Benz Sprinter (badged Freightliner) Class B camper van conversion by Pleasure-Way Industries in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
The only BPT I found east of the Appalachians was in McLean, VA and only because the owner of Corkie’s Grill was visiting in St. Louis, MO and came across the sandwich and decided he had to have it for his restaurant. I searched hard around Worcester, MA when my son was living there for a BPT and found nothing. Probably the closest thing you will find in the east is a Wiener Schnitzel dinner made with pork instead of veal at a classic German restaurant but it most likely would not be a sandwich.
Hotrodder, "Thank you, thank you very much." [:)] That’s what Elvis, the true king would have said.
I’m debating Thanksgiving. Pork tenderloin sandwiches or deep-fried turkey. [:D]
I struck out twice this weekend in finding a new pork tenderloin sandwich in two new places (for us). First was Chestnuts in Chaska, MN. No tenderloin but nice place anyway. Today we took a Sunday morning 6 mile walk at Baker Park near Maple Plain. Gotta train for these pork tenderloins. After we noticed there was a new Irish Pub in Maple Plain. Had to stop. No pork tenderloin sandwich but they did serve Guinness, Bass Ale, Smithwick, Schell’s Leinie’s and Boddington’s on tap. The place was formerly just a small town cafe but was remodeled into an almost authentic looking Irish Pub last August. McGarrys is the name. I will go back and try their walleye sandwich.
Indeed. Is Culver’s bigger or smaller than the portion at Papa Nick’s? Just put a spa next door and we’ll draw ’em like gangbusters from both coasts.
Jokes aside, I’ve often thought that a judiciously chosen, well-constructed diet of pleasing Roadfood could be the trick to reducing.
Davydd I hereby nominate you as the tenderloin king. All hail the king!
I just got back from the supermarket and I’m gona try your recipe tomarrow. I think you mentioned that you froze some after breading, how did they turn out?
To be more precise, Culver’s breaded pork tenderloin sandwich is 703 calories.
So I guess you can have your cake and eat it too. [:D]
Heck, for the price of one "GoGo" I can get 4 over at Iowa Cafe! [:)]
Actually, I think I have just scratched the surface of a large pork tenderloin underground that exists here in AZ! [8D] Davydd, as you probably know, we get our fair share of Snowbirds here every winter, and most come from the Midwest. There are an untold number of small sports bars and cafes that cater to this contingent. I can only assume that Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches are a mainstay on most menus…
I think seeking out all the "Wags and Iowa Cafes" here in the Phoenix/Tucson area could take me months if not years. Of course, I am willing to take on this challenge on behalf of all the Pork Lover’s of the world. [:o)]
Maybe I’ve found my calling in life! [V] Bout time. not sure how I’m gonna break this to my wife, though.
I’ll keep you posted!
Is that 800 calories including bun?
Figure you multiply 10 X’s your weight to find out how many calories you need to maintain your weight. So, if you weigh 200 lbs., you need 2000 calories per day to stay even.
Therefore, have one for lunch, one for dinner, and a 400 calorie piece of German Chocolate cake as a snack in the evening, or for breakfast.
But, if you weigh 200 and want to be 180, you’ll have to cut back on the cake. It’s not quite Jared’s diet, but technically, it’d work.

Davydd are you a VW owner?! [:)]
I am far too lazy to scroll thru 27 pages of posts [and who has that kinda time?!]… plus our notorious search function is notoriously bad… so:
Any place near Boston that I can try a BPT??? Thanks.
For Tabascocat here is an encore presentation showing both the world’s largest 16 oz. pork tenderloin sandwich but also the standard 8 oz. sandwich which is about the size you get just about everywhere else. The St. Olaf Tap also has a Mini 4 oz. version that just slightly over fills the bun.
desertdog, I count four presentations from you in Arizona. That’s impressive. Are you now tapped out or are there more? Maybe you can get up to Las Vegas and try the Hash House A Go Go tenderloin.
OK, OK, I’ll try to time it so it is lunch time. [:D]
One tenderloin does tend to kill your appetite for the rest of the day. Since they are about 800 calories maybe if you just ate one a day to kill the appetite and nothing else thereafter, it could be considered diet food? [;)]
