Yield 6 sandwiches (serving size: 1 sandwich and 1/4 cup jus)
"My husband and I have always liked this roast pork tenderloin, but it seemed a shame to throw out the browned bits and juices. So we made a flavorful jus out of them. It's really simple and so good." -Sherri O'Hare, Ajo, AZ

  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; add 1 teaspoon oil. Rub over pork. Let stand 15 minutes.

  3. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink). Let stand 5 minutes. Remove pork from pan; cut diagonally across grain into 12 slices.

  4. Return pan to medium-high heat, and add broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add sherry and tomato paste; stir with a whisk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes.

  5. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Place 2 slices pork on bottom half of each roll; top with lettuce leaf, if desired. Cover with roll tops. Serve with jus.
