Cheesesteak Sandwich with a Couple of Twists

I’m always on the lookout for good lunch options as I often feel we’re in a lunch rut. I try to avoid lunch meat for a variety of reason, but mostly because it’s expensive and often full of questionable ingredients like nitrates and nitrites (known carcinogens). The problem is, we LIKE lunch meats! So what’s a cook to do?

Today I was looking at my options at the grocery store and decided to make a cheese-steak style sandwich with butterfly pork. The butterfly pork was on sale for $1 each and is one of my husband’s favorite. I added some of the last few peppers from my garden, onion, garlic, and provolone. It was super tasty!

First, I sauteed the pork and the veggies in a little coconut oil. Have you tried coconut oil yet? It’s really nice!

Then I sliced and buttered my own homemade 5 Grain Bread. It probably would have been better on a bun, but I have not yet mastered my own homemade buns. They’re hit and miss with me unfortunately. Anyhow, this was still good! It ended up being a cross between a grilled cheese and a philly cheesesteak – except with pork! YUM!

Do you have a good, non-bread machine bun recipe you’d like to share? And, what’s your favorite lunch recipe?
