Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches in Mustard Glaze Plus Easiest Ever Hash Prown Potatoes

Crisp Hash Brown Potatoes and Mustard Glazed Pork Loin Sandwich with a side of Three Bean Salad.
I was inspired again by the blog, "The Iowa Housewife"  never do I miss reading this one!  I do so enjoy reading their blog! My adaptation used two flavors of mustard and you could choose any you like and make it your own.

Ingredients for Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches in Mustard Glaze:

2-4 boneless butterfly cut pork loin chops
1/4 C. apple cider vinegar
1/4 C. dark brown sugar packed
1 T. Dijon Mustard
1 T. Grainy Coarse Mustard

Combine vinegar, sugar, and mustard in a small bowl and whisk together.  Combine the chops and the marinade/glaze in a zipper bag and refrigerate for about an hour.  Grill over medium hear for about 8-12 minutes as desired.  I used an indoor cast iron griddle and cooked until the edges were dark brown and the meat was medium well done.  My husband Brian loved these!

To round off the menu I served Three Bean Salad and Crispy Hash Browns with Peppers.

Ingredients for Easiest Ever Hash Brown Potatoes:

Left over baked potatoes or bake extra for this purpose
salt and pepper
2-4 T. butter or oil
optional diced peppers and/or diced onions

Peel the baked potatoes and grate with a box grater.   Add the butter and/or oil to a heavy (I use cast iron) skillet over medium high heat.  Spread the potatoes evenly across the surface.  Cover and leave 4-5 minutes then check the edges for browning.  When a deep brown add the onions and peppers and turn over a spatula full at a time and repeat the process until they are as brown and crisp as you like.  Serve warm.  One extra large baking potato makes 2 servings.
