    A Midwestern favorite: Tenderloin sandwich

    We're in southeastern Indiana right now and yesterday we visited a local eatery for lunch.

    The roadside diner is one of those eateries that is open only for breakfast and lunch and the customer base is older people and working people. We liked it right off because when we walked in things got quiet for a few seconds as everyone looked at us and thought "strangers in town."

    I ordered a pork tenderloin sandwich with onion rings. I know you can get fried tenderloin sandwiches in other places, but they are most commonly found in the Midwest.

    The tenderloin I got was considerably bigger than the bun it was on, really a meal in itself without the excellent onion rings.

    I don't need to eat like that very often, but it was a treat yesterday.

    Does anyone else enjoy these sandwiches?

    YES!!!! But they are hard to find around here (East Ohio/WV/PA tristate area). They were very common in southern Ohio when I grew up. I don't remember seeing them much in KC.

    My grandfather was a member of the American Legion. When we would spend the day with them, we would always go to the Legion hall. Us kids got to shoot pool and eat tenderloins while grandpa did what the adults do in the bar... Great memories.

    I haven't had a tenderloin sandwich since I left Ohio in 1985. Now you've made me hungry for one, thank you very much!

    When I was a grad student at Ohio State 78-79, there was a hole-in-the-wall place just off campus that served them. I had never had them before, and they became my occasonal treat, downed with Vernors ginger ale.

    Haven't had one since. One of my very few good memories of that time.

    We have a place in town that sells them. We occasionally buy one "to go" and split it in two and add another bun at home to feed both of us.

    BTW, Dave and I are headed toward southeast Indiana to ride the Belle of Louisville tonight. Where are you and Jackie camped out?

    We're at Batesville - about 30 miles from Cincinnati. I haven't rode the Belle in a few years - have fun!

    This was our second time to do the cruise. The first time was a district NYI event (with a PR group from Olivet performing) almost 30 years ago. I'm not sure why we waited so long between. Very enjoyable. There was light rain when we started. Fortunately, there was room for everyone to stay under cover. Then the rain quit and by the time we returned to dock there was a beautiful sunset.

    Nice pictures! Our first time on the Bell it was a district NYPS event and I was one of the teens. The Bell must have been almost new at the time . Then in 2000 I was on it during a special media event associated with the National Quartet Convention. It was really cool as some of the top southern gospel groups were on board for a mini-concert and artist/DJ meet and greet. My claim to fame on that cruise was a chat I had with Armond Morales, the bass singer of Imperials fame.

    Where are you in SE Indiana? I have been there quite a few days recently.
    On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

    Hey, it's fried pork. Who could possibly ask for more?

    I just recently enjoyed a couple weeks in Iowa with family. Pork tenderloins were definitely highlights! Haven't found such here in VA.

    If you come a little further north than Batesville, let me know and I can hook you up with a couple places here in Pendleton that set the highest standard for pork tenderloin sandwiches......unbelievably tasty. I have to make it a rare treat or I'd be broke and weigh much more than I already do.
    When my mom and dad moved to FL over 20 years ago, their favorite thing about coming back to IN was getting a good sandwich.
    Thanks G R 'Scott' Cundiff - "thanks" for this post
