Servings 6 Sandwiches


  • 1 pork tenderloin cleaned
  • 2 cup corn flakes
  • 2 sleeves ritz cracker
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp dry mustard powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 quart vegetable oil


  • Cut the pork tenderloin into 6 equal pieces. Working individually, take the piece of tenderloin and place it between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using a mallet, gently hammer the tenderloin to 1/4 of an inch thickness. Season liberally with salt and of pepper. Set them to the side.
  • Add the corn flakes and ritz crackers to a large gallon sized storage bag and seal it. Using a rolling pin, gently crush the contents of the bag. Place the contents in a shallow pan or plate and set to the side.
  • In a shallow pan or dish, combine the flour, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and dry mustard powder. Set to the side.
  • In a shallow pan or dish, combine the eggs and heavy cream. Set to the side.
  • Working in a line, place one tenderloin in the flour mixture and dredge both sides. Place the floured tenderloin into the egg mixture, evenly coating each side. Next, add the tenderloin to the dish with the cracker mixture. Gently press the crumbs into the tenderloin to ensure an even coating. Repeat the process with the remaining tenderloin pieces.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed pot or pan to 350°. Working in batches, place the breaded tenderloin into the oil. Fry until golden brown, roughly 3 minutes per side. Carefully remove the tenderloin and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • Serve on hamburger buns with cheese, lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
