Quick Facts

Prep Time: 5 min.
Cook Time: 40 min.
Total: 45 min.
Marinaded in mustard, Madeira, orange, and ginger, this recipe proves that open-faced sandwiches aren't just kids stuff.


  • 1 lb boneless single-loin pork roast
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 6 Tbs Madeira wine
  • 2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp orange zest, grated
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 slices French bread, or Italian bread, 1-inch thick, toasted
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 4 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped


  • In small bowl, stir together preserves, 2 tablespoons Madeira, mustard, garlic and pepper; cover and refrigerate until needed. Place pork in self-sealing bag; add orange juice, remaining 1/4 cup Madeira, orange zest and ginger; seal bag and toss to coat pork. Refrigerate 8-24 hours.
  • Prepare banked medium-hot fire in kettle-style grill. Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill pork over indirect heat for 30-40 minutes, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 150 F. Remove roast from heat; let rest until temperature reaches 160 F, about 10 minutes. Thinly slice pork and place on toasted bread; top with apricot sauce; sprinkle with onion and cilantro.

Serving Suggestion: Wine suggestion: Serve a chilled Chenin Blanc or Viognier.

Cooking Tip: Do not overcrowd pork cuts when sauteing. Leaving space between them will allow them to brown and cook more evenly.
