It's fair time in Oklahoma!
You can come visit any day of either fair in Oklahoma and score a delicious pork sandwich from the okPORK Chop Shop. However - what do you do if you are craving a pork sandwich and can't get to the fair? Below is a fun and delicious options to make at home with your family and friends.

Caribbean pork sandwich
New York (top loin) pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, fresh cracked
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup mayonnaise, OR light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced
1 teaspoon lime zest, grated
ciabatta rolls, sliced in half horizontally
lettuce leaves
tomato, slices 

Cooking Directions 

Combine the salt, pepper, cumin and allspice in a small bowl. Rub onto both sides of the pork chops. Cover and refrigerate at least 20 minutes. 


Prepare medium-hot fire in charcoal or preheat gas grill to medium high. Pat chops dry and grill over a medium-hot fire, turning once, until just done, about 8-9 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

Transfer chops to a cutting board. Cover loosely with foil; let rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, lime rind and juice in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture on top half of rolls. Cut pork into thin slices and place on rolls. Add lettuce leaf and tomato slices if desired.  

Get out and enjoy the fair this fall!
