Pork Roll Sammies (Air Fried)



I’ve posted Pork Rolls a few times already, but I know there’s new guys coming on this forum all the time, so everything has a chance of being something new to some people. Plus some guys my age can see the same thing every day, & think it's a Brand New Post each time!! LOL


When we buy a whole Roll of Pork Roll, I make the slices thick enough for One slice per Sammy, but when we buy them already sliced, we put 2 slices in each Sammy, Because they’re much too thin for only one slice in a Sammy.
This time I got a whole Pork Roll, so I control the thickness when I slice it up.

So before slicing, I made the little slits around the perimeter of the whole Roll.
Those little slits around the perimeter keep them from turning into little cones of meat once they start heating up.
I made these in the #360 Air Fryer, for a change, to see how that works.
The first Day, I made 3 slices of Pork Roll & a mess of Curly Fries.
One was for Mrs Bear, and I ate the other 2 with Koops’ Spicy Mustard on the Rolls.
Curly Fries on the Side.

Then the next morning I heated up the 2 Ends of the Roll to go with my Morning Eggs.

Then that night I made 3 more slices, but because the diameter of the slices was less than my Burger Buns, I cut the third Slice in half & added the halves to the two Sammies to bring the “Meat to bread ratio” up to my liking!!
BTW: I toasted the Buns on these 2 Sammies, and used Yellow Mustard this time.


That’s about it.

Enjoy the Pics,

Bear

Point for sure

You really know how to make the 360 work Bear, your sammies look wonderful, Like! RAY
 
Wow Bear. Looks great sir. Never seen those pork rolls around here...but never looked for them either. They look fantastic. Wonder if maybe I couldn't make them somehow 'cause what you've done with them looks fantastic.

Thank You Chris!!
Yup---The Mustard goes Perfectly with Pork Roll.
The only thing that makes it hard to taste the Pork Roll is if you buy the Pre-sliced Pork Roll, and only put one slice in a roll. You have to jack the "Meat to Bread Ratio" up.
And Thanks for the Like.

Bear, Pork Roll is one of my all time favorites! Yours looks impressive and delicious! In Ga. I can only get the pre sliced thin, at Publix. Not seen anywhere else. So I order online from the Taylor Ham Man and I can get the Loafs or Thick sliced. You are totally correct that you need to bump the meat to bread ratio in order to get that perfect flavor. I usually put ketchup on mine, haven't tried mustard yet. Got some thick sliced in the fridge, so I'll be trying the mustard this week. Thanks and enjoy!

Holy cow John, those look amazing!!!:emoji_yum:
They look like something my grandma would make for us when we'd visit her up at her cabin.
I haven't had pork roll in over 40 yrs we don't get them down this far. :emoji_disappointed:

Thank You Mike!!
Yup, When I was a little kid, and we would stop at a place for Sammies, I wasn't big enough for a whole Cheesesteak, so I would always get either a "Pork BBQ" or a "Pork Roll Sammy".
And Thanks for the Like.

Yeah, it doesn't seem to stray too far from the NE, but we don't have Tri Tips around here either.
And Thanks for the Like.
