  • 16Servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1 1/4 pound pork tenderloin, at room temperature
  • 1 12 ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained (1-1/2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 16 dinner rolls (about 2 1/2 inches in diameter), split and the insides removed
  • 1 5 ounce bag blue potato chips, such as Terra Blues


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees . In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, salt, black pepper and cayenne.

Using a sharp knife, cut a few slits in the pork. Rub the garlic butter over the pork, making sure butter gets into the slits. Place on a roasting rack set in a roasting pan or on a foil-lined baking sheet; roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 150 degrees , 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest.

Meanwhile, using a blender, puree the roasted peppers, olive oil and paprika; season with salt.

Thinly slice the pork. Layer the bottom half of each roll with the potato chips, pork slices and about 1 tablespoon of the red pepper puree. Top with the remaining roll halves.
