You may remember a while back I baked a Kurobuta ham for Easter. Have you ever had one? This is our Easter ham from last year. All I can say is, “WOW”.
Kurobuta pork (Japanese Black Hog) is hands down the best pork I’ve ever had. It’s basically the “Kobe beef” of pork.
The other day while I was out and about trying to come up with something for dinner I was thrilled to see the Kurobuta pork in something other than ham form at my local butcher. Don’t get me wrong, the ham is absolutely divine, but it’s also extremely expensive and way too much meat for just the two of us. I purchased two loin chops and grilled the for dinner that night. They were amazingly tender and juicy and of course, because I can’t seem to figure out how to cook for just two people, there were leftovers.
Yesterday we started the day off with french toast and bacon and that was followed by me making peanut butter no bake cookies and cookie dough truffles. Lunch came and went and by 2:30 I was starving and hungry for something that didn’t involve sugar. The chops have been staring at me every time I open the fridge for the last couple of days so I decided on a gooey grilled cheese to help balance out some of the sugar. A day of cheese and sugar? Mmmm…it was lovely. Don’t judge.
Loin Chop Grilled Cheese
*You will need:
Dairy Free Butter
Gluten Free Bread
Daiya Cheddar Style Cheese
Thinly Sliced Sweet Onion
Baby Spinach Leaves
Thinly Sliced Loin Chop
Note: Dairy free butter browns very quickly and dairy free cheese melts very slowly. Construct your sandwich, cover, and grill on medium low so the cheese has time to melt and the butter doesn’t brown too quickly.
This sounds perfect, April. I just so happen to have a little leftover pork roast in my fridge. Tomorrow I’m heading out for some good bread and a little cheese. The pork may not be Kurobuta but there’ll be no complaints at the dinner table. Well, Max may not be too pleased when he fails to get any but that’s just too bad. Thanks for a great idea!
You’re very welcome! It was so easy and very tasty. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂
That pork looks fantastic and what a great looking sandwich. That’s the perfect thing for a weekend lunch. I haven’t heard of that kind of pork/ham but it does look amazing xx
We had leftover pork roast sandwiches for lunch today.. eldest son and I. and though probably not as good as your pork, our home grown pork was tasty tasty.. i shall make a sandwich like this next time! perfect! c
I bet your home grown pork is just as tasty!
I am astounded and grateful actually. it was all worth it!
Gluten free looks good right here
Gluten free is always good! 😉
Just curious… What bread are you using? I am still hunting for a good loaf! And…that sandwich looks amazing.
That was just Udi’s whole grain bread. Although, one of my friend’s just posted on FB that Walmart is now selling several different types of gluten free bread made by Franz bakery. 🙂
