2019’s Best Pork Tenderloin Comes From North Central Iowa
Happy Pork Month! The winner of the 2019 Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich in Iowa has been announced, and it's located in the city of Hampton!
The Iowa Pork Producers have been busy tasting pork tenderloins all across the state for their 17th annual Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Contest, and they have finally decided on a champion. The winning sandwich is called "The P.T.," and it's a menu item at The Pub at the Pinicon in Hampton, Iowa.
According to the Des Moines Register, the half-pound pork loins "are injected with their own natural juices to enhance moisture, then hand-cut, coated in seasoned flour, dipped in a milk and egg wash, breaded with seasoned panko crumbs and fried." Owners Dale and Laura Reicks also revealed that all of their pork is supplied by Reicks View Farms in Lawler, Iowa.
The Reicks will receive their grand prize today, which consists of $500, a plaque, and a banner. The Stumble Inn in Bradford was this year's runner-up.
