“Chef Tom Kenny of Mike Ditka's Restaurant in Chicago is the creator of this delicious marinade and Orange Aioli. I confess I've left the pork in the marinade for up to a couple of days and I think it tastes even better. And the Orange Aioli is to die for and in fact tastes good as a chicken sandwich dressing. All in all, it's a great sandwich and very easy! Prep time includes marinating the pork.”

  1. In a plastic zipper bag, marinate pork tenderloins in Chef Tom's Marinade at least 8 hours, preferably overnight (and personally, I've done up to 48 hours with great results).
  2. Remove pork from marinade and grill over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
  3. Toast kaiser rolls on the grill.
  4. Slice cooked tenderloins for sandwiches.
  5. Spread Orange Aioli on insides of rolls, layer pork onto the rolls, then the tomato, lettuce and onion.
