The Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches in the Midwest

When people in 48 of America's 50 great states hear "tenderloin," they probably think filet mignon.

Meet Smørrebrød, the Best Sandwich You're Not Eating

It's about a sauce you won't find anywhere else and its confounding origins. I'm not talking about a sauce comprised of that processed cheese-related product.
