Cider-molasses marinade perks up slices of grilled pork loin in this sizable sandwich.


  • 6 boneless pork loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/2 cup mild-flavor molasses or honey
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 hoagie rolls, onion-topped hamburger buns, or kaiser rolls, split
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise or mayonnaise
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Thinly sliced sweet onion
  • Sliced tomato


  1. Trim fat from chops; place in a resealable bag or covered dish and set aside. For marinade: In a medium bowl, combine apple cider, molasses, vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, ginger, hot pepper sauce and salt. Pour marinade over chops and turn meat to coat. Chill for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally. Drain pork, discarding marinade.
  2. Place chops on the rack of a gas or charcoal grill directly over medium heat. Cover and grill for 7 to 9 minutes or until done (145 degrees ). During the last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, open the buns and place them cut-side down on the rack to lightly toast. Remove pork and buns. Cover chops and let stand 3 minutes before slicing on a slight bias.
  3. To assemble sandwiches, spread buns with mayonnaise. Line bottom of buns with leaf lettuce; top with sliced pork, onion, tomato and bun tops.
