    Taylor Pork Roll Sammies (Grilled)


    Mrs Bear thought it was about time we had some Taylor Pork Roll, and I totally agreed.

    So she picked up a One Pound Bagged Roll for about $8.
    As you’ll see I stole some for a couple Sammies the night before I did this Batch.

    I made the anti-curling cuts in the whole roll. Works better than making little cuts in each slice!!

    We sometimes throw it in a Frying Pan, but since the weather was decent, I threw the slices on my Weber “Q”.

    Then as you’ll see, I used some Grey Poupon this time for a little extra Pizzazz.

    That’s about it, other than what I say in the captions below. 

    This is Great Stuff !!!

    About 12 ounces of a 16 ounce bag of Taylor Pork Roll:





    I like to make 4 cuts about 1/2” deep in it before I slice it—Quicker & Easier. This keeps the slices from curling:





    All sliced up:





    Toss them on my Weber “Q”:





    Getting some Grill Marks:





    Getting close—Don’t want to Dry them out:





    Sammie Time——Get ‘em while they’re Hot !!!





    Grey Poupon on both halves and some Grilled Pork Roll. That’s all that’s needed. Don’t want to smother the Pork Roll flavor:

    Thank You Richie!!!

    I knew you saw it before!!  

    I usually do put cheese on too, but I wanted just the Pork Roll & Mustard flavor on these.

    The ones I had the night before had a slice of American on each, but I fried those Pork Roll slices.

    And Thanks for the Point!!

    Looks good. We just moved back to NJ so we can finally have a regular cheap supply on hand. The first morning back, breakfast was Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese on a Hard Roll. Simply nothing comes close to Taylor Ham aka, Taylor Pork Roll. I am out currently but there is a Jersey Burger in the near future...JJ

    I Am in NJ all the time for work. Supermarkets sell these or do you have to go someplace special to get them?

    It's in most supermarkets in SE PA, so I would assume it's sold in ALL Jersey Supermarkets.

    Pork Roll & Awesome Sweet Corn are 2 of the many Great Eats that come from Jersey.

    Most grocery stores carry 1 and 3 Lb rolls. It comes pre-sliced too but come in small packs, is cut way too thin for my taste, oh and they DOUBLE the price!!...JJ

    Like JJ said----Try to avoid the little boxes of Thin sliced Pork Roll. It's not only too thin, it tends to dry out & get hard when preparing.

    Go for one of the Rolls in a bag.

  19. Jersey burger, haven't heard that in a long time. We prefer Case pork roll and prepare every imaginable way. Grill, rub it and smoke, cube it and make hash. If your in North Jersey it's called Taylor ham, Central And South it's called pork roll. Can you believe people actual debate over this stuff;http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2014/05/map-pork-roll-vs-taylor-ham.html
     
  20. Just curious, what does it cost up there ?  Not available down here, looked online  kind of expensive
